This blog is my portfolio of artwork, a journal about my process of making art...and the things that I have no words for...

A toot on my horn...


My Fred and I are both featured in the CNY Art Showcase magazine... we have donated two paintings apiece to the Eastwood Rotary Foundation art auction & festival on April 23rd to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House. It's going to be a good time... we're going to have a booth to feature our artwork and have the opportunity to meet n' greet bidders.

I think I finished this painting last weekend, I just never got around to posting as it was late at night when I put on the finishing touches and the lighting was too crappy at the time to take a decent picture...I have yet to name it...it has multiple ideas happening, a Nocturne with a Blue Moon sort of theme...and my favorite corrosion colors...

*edit* 3/19/2010... I've given it a name! It's after a Sappho fragment: If Not, Winter

Then I started this little guy 16 x 8 inches...a burnt sienna wash with payne's gray scumbled on top...I have some thinking to do about what I want to do next...

I've been having multiple Fibromyalgia attacks this week, Monday being the worst day, I stayed home from work and slept much of the day away. I've been up and down all week long, I blame it on the time change mostly, that usually messes up everything for a while, my inner clock has no idea what time it is...I've taken tomorrow off from work to do a few things, possibly sit on the porch and soak in some sunshine...paint...read...write...do the things that get me out of bed everyday...

Tho' I have these little brown eyes that force my feet onto the floor and out the door early everyday...
What a sweet little boy dog! I think anyone with Fibromyalgia should have a dog to get them up everyday!
