The painting life is one of joy for me. I love to paint then get overwhelmed with all I have produced. There is never a thought for what to paint next or any hesitation when I sit at the easel. Something always comes to me as I paint and re paint. This year I have continued my landscape series and gone back to my old style of mixing it up with stories on canvas of animals and people and just life in general. I went to art camp in June and painted for 5 days straight.I completed 2 commissions this summer.
Otherwise my paintings studio have been in my little corner which is ok but not ideal. I long for a big space to spread out and paint on bigger pieces.
Right now I have two shows up at the Chapel Hill Visitors Center and at the Mad Hatter Bakeshop and Cafe in Durham. I was also on exhibit at the Unc Visitors Resource Center in June.
October will bring a short trip to Florida and then back for the OCAG tour in November.
If you look on their site you can see two posts by me on painting at Nimrod Hall and in San Miguel Mexico.
