Starting Again...



Wow, it's been a long time since I've been here to post anything at all!  This has been a great year, in all ways.  No doubt the best part is continued good health for Bill and I, with a close runner up being the six weeks we spent in France in September.  A few days in Paris, then a month in Collioure on the beach, doing very little painting, but lots of eating and drinking and fun, a little time in Beynac, and a few days in Amboise where daVinci lived and is buried.

In our art world, it was a good year too.  I started AND finished and sold the 8 x 10" 'Cherries' painting to a lovely patron :-) and Bill and I celebrated with her over lunch at Palamino's in downtown Seattle.  Also sold two framed prints of 'Tired' and 'Stretch,' my 'girls' -- the drawings from 2012, to another lovely client who has purchased before.  Then, I finally finished a third drawing, this one called 'Reach' and sold a print of that at our annual Holiday Party/Art Showing.   The two small paintings of golden pears, 'Pears in a Bowl' and 'Just Standing 'Round' sold to two new clients, too.  On top of all that good news, quite a few of Bill's pieces sold at the art showing also!

I'm working on finishing a slightly impressionist version of a Santa Cruz beach scene (where we were in May) and finishing yet another version of Clementines.  Then off to new ideas and work.

Thanks so much for following along.  I AM going to paint more this year.  Promise to self. And to you.

I hope your Holidays are filled with joy, fun, food, drink, and of course, some good art!

Bill's Work...





Here are five of the seven works of Bill's that sold yesterday.  He is so good!  Enjoy....

Just an Update...














Hi. I'm still alive and kickin! And doing some drawing and some painting. Just not enough of either. Yesterday I sold another painting, the study of "Cherries," a small 5 x 7 little work, but the buyer was happy and so was I :-) I also sold SEVEN of Bill's works, watercolors, pastels and an oil. I need to get that man back in the studio, working, working, working! Thanks for following along. I'll get pics of Bill's sold works up later today.
