Hi everyone! I have not yet gotten totally back into painting yet due to a bad cold that doesn't want to leave me. But, duty calls - I start working on a large painting commission tomorrow. That means I have to be in the studio all day and hopefully will have a daily painting completed tomorrow night.
Please email me with your name and address to register.
I haven't decided on subject matter yet, if you have suggestions, send them along or write them in the "comment" section below
. The painting will be an 8"x10" and will be shipped to the winner immediately in order to arrive in time for Christmas.
Stay tuned for more info....

This what I like to do best - a wildly tangled but melodic field of poppies interspersed with little spots of color everywhere. Some of the small flowers reaching up into the sky, maybe towards the light. I hope you like this one. Tomorrow I am presenting a Christmas painting. Oh, and watch for my FREE PAINTING GIVEAWAY. I will give you the date and registering instructions tomorrow night....

Here it is - the newest painting up for auction on eBay. I just couldn't wait!
I am cleaning my studio tomorrow, finishing up a few things, and am going to try to get to the gym before I start working again.
Be watching for a FREE painting giveaway sometime in December...


Well, Artfest is finally over!
I had a great show, sold 47 paintings and am really tired. I came home, put everything in the studio, closed the door, and didn't do one thing yesterday except lay around and read.
Today I am itching to get back to work! I can't believe it - when I HAVE to paint, I procrastinate. When I don't have to paint, I really really want to get back to it. So, I am planning on starting back tomorrow with the daily paintings and eBay auctions. I am also planning a FREE PAINTING GIVEAWAY in December. Stay tuned for that. I am also planning to do some small framed 6"x8" oils as a change of pace. For those of you who came out to the show - thank you, thank you so much for your support. It's seeing old (and new) friends that make doing these shows worthwhile.
Oh and one last thing - if anyone wants to order any ornaments, please email me as I am only doing them when requested. They are $20 each and that includes shipping.

Today is Monday.
Artfest set-up is all day Thursday.
I'm finishing up all paintings today, tomorrow, and possibly early Wednesday morning. Then I will gather all of my show paraphanalia; rugs, lighting, signs, tables, chairs, drill, screws, and the million other little things that go along with doing the show. I will also make an inventory list, cards to put alongside each painting, and do a few last minute things. I always forget something. Oh, and I have to take a huge painting to be photographed, pick up some others that have already been photographed, hook and wire those, and take three small pieces to the framers to be framed. I'm sure there's something else. I just can't remember what!
Wish me luck and for all of you who live in the immediate area - please come and visit me, I really enjoy seeing everyone and it's such a treat after all of the work I do.
Artfest is:
Friday, November 9, 10am-9pm (7-9pm is 25 cents admission!)
Saturday, November 10, 10am-6pm
Sunday, november 11, 10am-5pm.
I think I'm doing a painting demonstration on Saturday.
Thank you all for your support and emails!!!
