Dreaming On

Sometimes, when I first go in to my studio  I will tape a paper to the wall and just paint whatever comes to mind.  It is a great warm up and I love doing it. This painting, Dream On was the result one day. Today I am exploring black and white. I'll post the results later.

My Birthday Week

My birthday is Saturday.  They roll around so fast.  I'm looking forward to spending the day with my husband and checking out 10 Below at the Oxford Hotel. Have been painting some small abstract landscapes. I love doing these from memory of our vacation this summer to Utah, Idaho and Wyoming.

I'm Back to Painting and Posting

River Running  48 x 36 " acrylic on canvas

Well, my last post was entire year ago. The annual steamroller event is next weekend at Atelier 6000 in Bend, Oregon and my last post was a video from last year. I've lost a lot of time this year to family events.  We have a new granddaughter in the family and we have already been to Wyoming three times since she was born to see her and her Mom and Dad. She is a delight and I've gone the way of the crazy grandma, making faces and funny noises to her on Skype and wanting to buy every cute baby dress or stuffed animal. On a less positive note, my 92 year old Mom was hospitalized and had to be moved to an assisted living facility from her home because she could no longer live alone. I've spent months unloading her house; moving things to my home; hosting garage sales; and taking car loads to the Goodwill or the dump. As a result my artistic life has suffered. Recently I have been painting again on a more daily basis and I have three shows this month, one in October and another in November.
