Under the Sea

This piece, Antonia Under the Sea, 24" x 24", mixed media, is a switch for me. Koi Garden, another piece of mine that sold and I was trying to replace in the gallery led me to this brighter color palette and more contemporary look.

In the last several months, I have worked on three pieces that I felt like I had painted before. Deja vu. Wish I knew if this meant something good or bad. Yikes.

Temptation

Is temptation what rules life? Or is it just me? This painting is so typically me - always looking over my shoulder in case I missed anything, the one wing meaning in search of completion and, of course, the crow who loves anything shiny!

Back to asses and elbows in paint. Am almost finished with another water themed triptych which I will show you when it gets back from the photographer. Just to keep you guessing there are fish swimming among dreadlocks.

Back in the Clouds

After spending a week in Palm Springs, checking it out for my husband's health. He decided that after the earthquake in Japan that he didn't want to risk one in California. As a native Californian, it doesn't bother me as much. The weather was perfect, the pool was wet and I looked at a lot of art both on El Paseo and the La Quinta Art Show. And went I got back to Santa Fe, it was spring. Winter is hopefully over although we can get snow into May.

So it is back to the studio and my classes!
