Slow Down, Old Man Time

OMG. The Holidays are here and where did most of November go. The Santa Fe Studio Tour held last weekend was a great success and I love meeting new people. Bernie, my newfie, was the biggest hit and lots of people wanted dog hugs.

The work on the new book is going at a steady pace. I dream techniques all night long. What a blast.

This piece, Waiting Patiently, was done in 2006. It is on plexiglas which I am getting back to though in a different way. It takes a different way of thinking as I am working on both sides with paint, transfers and collage. They beauty is the depth and how they glow.

Red Hot

Something bright, something red. My friend's gallery is telling her that they want more red pieces that she does so well. It prompted me to create a red one, Juicy Too, though I normally don't work that hot. It turned out to be a delight to do and for some reason it made me feel like Christmas. Oh my.

Time Flys

Busy getting ready for the Santa Fe Studio Tour on November 14 & 15th. Doing artwork, cleaning studio, organizing. I am sharing my studio for the event with Mary L. Parkes and Linda Filhardt. Last year we ended up with great sales even though we seemed to be doing a lot of partying. Personally, I think people would rather buy art from those who enjoy themselves.

This piece, Maitresse sans visage, has to do with all the old images of people we see. We know what they were wearing, the time period but never their personality or soul.
