Good Afternoon. I just took these photos of my studio and thought I would share what it looks like after a few busy projects. My hope is to clean it up a bit after I finish the chandelier I am working on. Do wish me luck as the skies are getting grey and I am ready to go into winter hibernation.

Good Morning. This is my most recent dress chandelier painting. It is 24" x 36" and so much fun. It is a result of this chandelier that I have been working on since spring.
The studio is getting a good cleaning out this week and I wonder what kind of painting it will lead to next. I am always finding ideas that I have cut out of something and put somewhere and then voila it is time to paint again.
In the meantime, the garden calls and the weeds are paying a visit.

I thought maybe you might want to see the finished cakes. 24" x 8" and perfect for the little spaces between windows or next to a cabinet in the kitchen. They started out with a french grate that came across all three canvas and then I went after color...really bright color.
Enjoy the day!

I started these cakes with a large French balcony grate
and then began to add lots of colour.
Today comes the flowers and fancies. These are each 8" x 24".
About 10 years ago I started collecting white china with frilly edges. And, I use them every day. I though about keeping them for "good" but really don't know what that means. I think every day is a good day and some days are even better. 16" x 20".

The rain just kept coming for the last three weeks and I started painting brown pictures without using brown paint. I had to leave the studio and do something else. The sun came out a little bit yesterday and today and look what happened? I am so happy! 24" x 36".
Enjoy your weekend.

Entertaining is delightful when the plates do not match.
I like the idea that the flowers come right through the window to decorate the table.
This is a fun one for me to be painting.

We all got together in my studio at 9am on Saturday; Teri, Angie, Paula & Kiki.
The first order of business, after the coffee, tea and apple cake,
was to create a collage as a way to warm up. We worked on these until noon.
After lunch we started painting a Tuscan landscape.
|It is always amazing to me when I get the opportunity|
to play art with women who have never or only a few times
painted and they create such amazing pieces.
I hope they all end up on their walls.
The next class is April 9, 2011.
Space if limited, so please sign up early.

I have been painting all morning and kept changing the vase. Then I remembered my paisley stencil. It feels like something I remember from college days; perhaps a skirt or something.

I am working at Lunaria Gallery in Silverton, Oregon today. Here is a picture of my little wall. We are a coop gallery of 25 members and each work 1 to 2 days per month. It is a little piece of heaven to spend a day in a gallery of lovely art.
