On Being Challenged and Going Big

It's been a long time since I've attempted to work on figure paintings. So, this is the summer of the figure. It's also the time when I will force myself to work BIG! Both challenges have begun with this study of roses in a small silver bud vase and a portrait of the beautiful Katie Holmes in this stunning black dress. It's my welcoming of summer. I hope you enjoy them all.

I was thrilled this afternoon to see that my little paintings have appeared on The Jealous Curator, a blog which I look forward to and read with such excitement and one that always fuels my creativity. I can't say enough how honored and over the moon I feel. I hope you will go to their site and read... 

Also, my middle name should be "Running Late." Instagram has been out for years and just recently, I've made an account. I do hope you will follow:

I have so much to be thankful for this year. In August, this was hard to see, but your lovely cards and messages of many different kinds have been so uplifting and wonderful reminders to stay positive. So, a BIG thank you to all of you for sharing your kindness and taking the time to pass on such needed words of encouragement. They have made me stronger so that I am able to be a more help to my mother. 
When someone is going through cancer, little things seem to make an incredible difference. One of those things has been making chemo caps for my mom out of pretty scarfs and handkerchiefs. I also took the time to make some art-teaching aprons for the coming semester's Studio Art class. Those Frida fabrics were a wonderful surprise.
