What I am working on

This is how far I've gotten on the painting. 34 x34.  Layering, blocking in areas, figuring layout and making changes.

This is the digital collage I "sketched" out by cutting and pasting small bits from my paintings to create new images and adding other elements.

Close ups of paint details and sketch for the plant.

It's been a long time

It's been a long time since I felt like I could post on the blog. Things have happened in the past 9 months. One in particular as horrible as life could throw at you. And then after much darkness a glimmer of light happened completely unexpected and I was asked-invited to be part of the State of the Art Invitational Art Show. There was me and seven other artists chosen to participate.

What's going on...

 It has finally gotten cold. The leaves are almost all gone from the trees. So much rain has fallen around here that the lake level is crazy high. Boats are higher than the docks which most are under water. All the falls and creeks are just wild torrents.

Doing lots of baking-cinamon nut rolls, biscuits, and bread.

Cucumber pickles

Cooking dinner on the woodstove and bowl of bread dough is near by raising in the warmth.

And painting on various projects and this is one of them

February Update

Lots and lots of snow that just won't go away! Some of us love it like Miss Olivia and Little Daisy. They can't get enough of it. Me? I seem to be having a hard time of it even though I love it too. Trying to get wood from the wood piles, slipping and sliding on our daily walks. And flying through the air falling on what I thought was snow that turned out to be a solid sheet of  ice! Nothing broken, just sore thank goodness.

A lot of baking on a regular basis. Baking bread, pita bread, biscuits, blueberry coffee cake, and cake...


Blueberry Kuchen with nut streusel

Doing another family painting/collage of me (I'm 3), my pony Nipper, an my brother Phillip. Circa 1956.

It's Beginning to Look A LOt Like Christmas!

My Christmas list for the doggies

My flock of penguins for my Etsy shop

Making Christmas cards which I swore I would not do this year - I would buy them like most people. But here I am spending a massive amount of time making cards-as usual....

This will be me and the dogs when I get the sled out
