Reluctant Spring

Spring is slow walking its way to Vermont, but that means plenty of inside time in the studio with no beautiful weather distractions. It's all about perspective and keeping the glass half full. Here are some new dolls I've made during this chilly March weather.

Day 12&13, 30 paintings in 30 days

Looks like I missed day 11 and will most likely miss a few more this week because I'm painting my kitchen and pantry. That's ok, nobody cares and it's just for fun and practice. Plus, it will be nice to have my pantry and kitchen all beautified. That's important too.

Welcome 2017

I've come back to reclaim my neglected website, an annual New Years resolution which I usually abandon after a month or two. Ah, but this year will be different. It always is. 

I moved in 2016. Sold my house in beautiful western North Carolina and bought another fixer upper in the hills of beautiful Vermont. Hope to see my two new grandsons more often now. The move and home renovation cut into my art making time. I'm hoping to get back on track in the studio more in 2017. 

I'm doing this 30 paintings in 30 days exercise. For me it will most likely be 15-25 paintings in 30 days, but that's ok. All the best to you in 2017!

A belated Happy New Year to y'all!  I've started out the year playing with paint.
