Fraker/Scott Gallery Show

Tomorrow morning I am delivering 30+ 12x12 paintings to Fraker/Scott Gallery for their 12x12 show. Art walk is November 4, and I will be there from 6:00-8:00. The show will be up for November and December. There are several other artists showing, including Mona Smiley-Fairbanks, Tracy Fraker, Lynn Scott, Nancy Thompson, Kate Steiger and Lisa JonesMoore. Come by to visit with us and see all the 12x12 paintings if you can. If you can't make it to art walk, there will be a reception later in the month. For more information see

A New Painting At Last!

Well, I finally made it back into the studio for more than a few minutes. I finished up a lot of paintings that had been sitting around for while, but have only posted one here. It is for the heart show I will have at Local Color in February of 2011 and is 18x18. It felt good to get back to work, but I am still not feeling really inspired. I think I just have to keep at it until inspiration strikes. If nothing else works, my experimental painting group meets on November 8.

I'm Still Here

I hope you haven't given up on me. I am 3 and 1/2 weeks post surgery, and I am doing really well. I have painted a few small paintings, but nothing has been photographed, so I have nothing to show you. I hope to get back in the studio regularly this week. It is difficult to get back into a routine when everything has been focused on my back for so long. I am far from recovered, but I should be able to get back to painting, and will be very happy to do so.

I looked around my studio yesterday and realized that probably 80% of the paintings I have hanging in there are figurative. The other 20% are vessels. I wonder what is going to happen next. I won't know until I get back in their and start creating.

So, you have heard nothing from me since day one of the studio tour, which was ages ago. Well, two days after the tour I had back surgery. Since then I have done nothing but work on recovering from that. Today, which is 12 days since my surgery, I am going to go to my studio and attempt to paint. I don't imagine I will get much done since I have very little energy, but I won't know until I try. I actually want to get a few small things done for Musings Artist Inspired for the holiday season. Small will be a good place to start I think.
