The Carolina sky is blue and the leaves are turning the hues of the southwest ,
but I am busy gathering furniture, pillows, linens and things of beauty to make our new nest
in Carrboro. My paintings will be hung on newly painted white walls and await their
next exhibits especially the one in May at Duke Medical Center . New paintings will come as
I paint with a purpose to capture a slice of Italy where we spent 3 weeks in September.
Last week I went to Durham to a new gallery called Alizarin to meet Nancy Tuttle May ,
a well known abstract artist. She discussed her painting process and often works on very
large canvas or paper, always working flat and using liquid paint with mixed media.
I have completed a few abstracts and love the positive and negative spaces but often I
cannot stop there. I think because I love to draw , stories will usually come to me as I create.
Looking forward to getting back to painting now that my Carolina studio is set up and ready
I will sit brush in hand , paints spread out before me , a blank canvas on the easel and make
art . It is my very happy place.
