Four and a Quarter

Only when he no longer knows what he is doing, does the painter do good things, Edgar Degas. I love the quote from Degas, and hope that you do too.

Hercules, Our Special Kitty

July 1996-June 12, 2010

We were so lucky that Hercules decided to live with us. After he suddenly appeared in our backyard, he never left. From then on, he was ours for keeps. Hercules brought love, joy, and laughter to our lives. He gave us peace, and comfort. His purity, and innocence, were constant reminders of the simple beauty of life. We were always impressed, and inspired, by his tremendous courage, and huge spirit. We miss Hercules more than words can say. He will live in our hearts forever.

It's a Citrus Series

It's fun to work in a series. One painting leads to another. With endless possibilities, slight changes can be made to each painting. The end result can be a small, or large, series of related work. This citrus series is now framed, and ready to go to the Lafayette Gallery, for the new summer show!

Green and Gorgeous Santa Fe

We spent the Memorial Day weekend in Santa Fe, NM. Thanks to lots of unusual snow and rainfall, everything was green, with flowers growing everywhere. The top photo shows the Acequia Madre, which means mother ditch. It is gushing with water, when normally it is very dry. Next, we can see Canyon Rd, and lots of pretty flowering window boxes. Lastly here I am , standing under a big green and shady tree. It was all wonderful, beautiful, and just the way the beginning of summer should be.

Happy June

Hope that everyone's long weekend was wonderful. With the beginning of summer, I'm looking forward to things slowing down, and having more time to paint. This was done very quickly, during a busy Memorial Day weekend.
