As I posted on my other blog, I have been in a whirlwind of activity, hence my absence from blogging.
I have many wonderful happenings and hope to share more soon...
but for now here is a hodge podge of photos...
this is an oil on board of a girl named Anna ~ painted in 1860, when she was 20 years old. She lived to be 80. There are details with her full name, mention of grandchildren etc on the back of the painting. I wish the photo was nicer to show the richness of the colours. Something drew me to her. I had the frame but bought the painting for $20 at my local antique shop. She's haunting...and she's my new Lady in Red, as Steve has the other...:)
This is my dining room chalkboard and I change the message on a regular basis. Sometimes in french, sometimes displaying a menu ~ anything goes!
These are my words..."In the Garden of Life, you'll always find Beauty, if you look for it"...
My studio is on the move...It will reside in its own special place very soon.
Under construction ..;)
This is a lovely vintage card table that I recently picked up. I just fell in love with it! I love the style of the legs and it looks like a very old oil painting.
This photo was going to be titled: 'Pain Lives Here'...because among all the good happenings in my life, I am spending more and more time with my Chiropractor :((
in his office is a large print of Picasso's 'Blue Nude' and it along with my back pain ~ ugh! inspired me to paint these...but I try never to dwell on the negative.
coffee and charcoal on canvas when they wips (works-in-progress)
(crazy? I know, but I love my coffee :)
Anyway, I hope to see you soon! I have not been able to make my round of visits and for that I am sorry. At times, life moves at such a wicked pace and weeks go by before you know it. I leave you with a smile and much love...
