New Work

The best part of this new work is the texture, and unfortunately texture is really hard to see in these images. I had a wonderful afternoon creating these. I also produced two pear paintings and a floral for the first time in a couple of years. I had such a good time!

Catching UP

I can't believe it has been a month since I have posted here. We spent the month of April in Palm Springs. All I did for a month was float in the pool, read and paint. It was fabulous. The painting above is one I completed in Palm Springs. It is a temporary jump back into a series I did a couple of years ago. Sometimes that happens!

As soon as I returned home I had the Kirkland Art Studio Tour to participate in. This year I was in the turret room at Kirkland Arts Center. I did not do well in terms of sales, but I had a very good time visiting with all the people that came through.

Next I had knee replacement surgery last Monday. Hooray! The doctor also gave me a cortisone shot in the other knee so that I can do the necessary rehab for the knee I had surgery on. I will be having the other knee done in the fall. In any event, once I have healed, I should be able to walk better than I have in years. Recovery is going very well, and I was on the stairs the day after surgery. I made it to my studio downstairs as soon as I got home, and I am working on a new piece today. It is going to be a plaster piece on a cupboard door that is left from our kitchen remodel. I am hoping to turn out something I like for a door-themed show at Fraker/Scott next month.

I will not let another month go by before I get back to this blog.
