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!
