Bowl of Corks

5"x 5" Watercolor
This little bowl of corks are from
a wine tasting. The corks present
a good study in values.

The show in Wilkes-Barre went well.
We had four-eleven hour days, and I
demonstrated for most of them.
It was 9pm when we got home last night.
Sleeping in my own bed felt pretty good!
This morning the road was to wet for a bike
ride so I emptied the van and got right to

Tuesday Check in...

There is just no time to get a blog
completed this week. I drove 7 hours
home from Ohio yesterday, in time to
get to track practice. Today I had a few
errands, visited my Mom, had track practice
and had a client visit the studio tonight.
Tomorrow is the last track meet, districts.
And then we leave again Thursday morning
for a show. So simply too busy. But after
tomorrow track is finished and I will be
able to concentrate on painting again.

The good news is I finished my large painting.
20x24 Watercolor
Untitled... feel free to make title suggestions
No price either, the paint is still wet!
I am very happy with the way it turned out.

Thursday check in...

I cannot believe I only managed one painting
this week. It is simply hectic. I had two track
meets plus today I helped with the elementary
field day. Today's meet: boys won, girls lost.
This was the last meet of the season. Next
Wednesday we have Counties and that will be
the end. Tuesday there was a special Mothers
day party at the nursing home so I spent time
with my Mom. I took care of a plumbing issue
in Linda's Moms apartment. I got a badly
needed haircut. I packed the van. Linda was
equally busy at her desk, doing laundry and she
spent time with her friend Joan yesterday.
We leave again early tomorrow morning
for a 7 hour drive to Columbus Ohio, set
up the camper and chill a little bit! Don't
feel to envious, the show set up is Saturday
at 6am!
The Show:
Delaware Arts Festival ~ Delaware, Ohio

Held in Historic downtown
My space is #132 on Winter Street

Tulip Challenge

4"x 6" Original Watercolor
$200.00 SOLD

I know, I said I painted my last tulip...
Until the May Challenge for Paint and Draw
turns out to be a tulip! Check out the
challenge photo to see how I did.
Remember I draw it free hand.

Thank you to all the good wishes for my
award. I painted today while Linda
worked in the studio getting some framing
done. I had a track meet and both
my boys and girls were beat. Not a good
start to the week.

Sunday Check in...

Honorable Mention at Art on the Half Shell!

Here is a photo of my new ribbon, it also
came with some prize money!

This is my outdoor display, not totally
finished and lacking the rug. It was
extremely windy on Saturday and several
artists lost their tents. Notice my 50 lb
weights! I had a good sales day and met
some new clients. Just got home around
5pm and unloaded the van. Linda has a
load of laundry in and I am off to pick
up a pizza. We are both tired so it will be
an early night. Happy Mothers Day to all
the moms out there! Mine was a good
one and I know I tried her patience often!

No painting to show you tonight.
Since I am out of town this weekend
I spent quality time with my Mom,
took her some flowers for Mother's Day

fresh air. Then it was off to track practice
and then a few groceries and gas up the
van. Set up is tomorrow so we are packed
and ready to go.

Crissay-sur-Manse, France #4

4" x 6" Original Watercolor
$250.00 ~ Contact the studio

I painted this village last year, check 7/28/09
for some background. I don't know how
many favorite French villages I can have but
this one is high up on my list. I love the
red flowers against the white stone. Don't
overlook the cafe curtain in the window.

I had a track meet today, boys won, girls
lost by 6 points. Very pleased with the team!
Linda went to yoga and is going to her favorite
gardens, Chanticleer with her girlfriend all
day tomorrow.

2010 Tulip Study #3

6" x 4" Original Watercolor ~ SOLD!!
$100.00 to the first person to call/email

I wanted to paint one last set of tulips,
this time showing a broad view. The
storms pulled off all the pedals so they
are finished in the garden.
I am thinking this is perfect for Mother's

The new camper did well over the weekend.
I had to set it up Friday night in the dark with
a flashlight... kind of a trial by fire! We sold the
old camper so that is out of here. The show
was ok, not great but ok. Most of the rest of
the season are better quality shows so I expect
more from them. Linda spent half her day
out weeding the garden which is a great stress
reliever for her! I ran to the bank, to the post
office, painted and had track practice. The day
flew by.
