a daily musing about my family, my life, but mostly about art - how i will try to paint every day - even while my house is falling down around my ears and my five grandchildren are clamoring to paint with me. thank god my husband likes to cook and that he and nellie and ruby, our golden retrievers, have infinite patience. we'll see.....

working on a rose
this is a rose from my backyard. i HAD to try and paint something for me today. i faux finished walls...i hand embellished two giclees for a client...after stretching them on very thick and difficult stretcher bars...(hrumph!)...and now i'm working on this rose- after seeing the photo, i'm not happy so i'll work some more tomorrow and post something then for sure. i thought i'd put a pic of the unfinished bathroom project up.
the lighting is terrible so you can't see the finish well..lots of bronze, copper, tealy green-blue, my vanity is being delivered tomorrow. you can see the chocolate brown tiles on the bathroom floor in the background. i've decided on white white wordwork...can't wait to get started on that. will i EVER get back to my studio???
