I cleaned my studio yesterday, what a good feeling to have a tidy space. I'm not the worlds best housekeeper, but do feel satisfaction when things are neat and tidy.
The painting of the woods is in progress and depicts the area around Bothell Landing. The still life is centered around the little blue pot I found in an antique store. Fridays are figure drawing for me and the watercolors are from this week.

The weather has turned and we're full into wind and rain. I found the leaves on my last walk with my buddy Cindi. Love the colors! My studio is pretty colorful these days too, with the bad weather settling in I spend a lot more time painting. It's great to be so productive but my studio is a MESS!

Here are some new paintings just finished and a continuation of the scale painting. I need to keep at the scale image because there is potential there but still not quite right. Now that I'm finishing up on a number of projects it's time to start on new ideas! This is always so exciting.

Life is getting hectic again. My art classes are in full swing and I have a couple of new painting commissions to work on. Meanwhile, I'm also working to build a group of paintings to replace what sold in the last show. It's exciting to be thinking about new compositions. As I wander around antique and junk shops I scan the shelves for interesting objects. The things I end up choosing usually spark some kind of memory, most often of someone I care about.
