March Already?

Seriously can’t believe it’s been a whole month since my last blog.  Crazy, crazy!   Went to Texas in mid-February to visit Mom (conveniently) during our first realtor open house.  A total blur, but getting into the routine of living and maintaining “pristine” while the house is on the market. So far, so good.  A HUGE part of me loves this minimalist environment, lack of “stuff” and amazing calmness having everything in its place. . . . er, not that I can remember where anything is anymore!

On a separate note, my wonderful art club is still keeping me focused – we have painting challenges and meet ups about once a month.  It is a cherished event so we all make it a priority no matter what else is going on.  This month’s challenge was to paint something abstract.  Luckily I’m still riding the high of Lisa Daria’s workshop and took a stab at painting Viacheslav’s Small Bouquet 2 (see January blog entry - From Russia with Love) in a totally abstract manner.  Lisa picks interesting names, so thought I would try that too.  Here it is.  What do you think?  Should I try this abstract thing some more?

Other news – So excited that eight of my larger paintings were juried into the Art at the Mill show in Millwood VA!  For the NoVA/DC locals looking for fabulous art at great prices, I encourage you to stop by. Show runs from April 23-May 8, 2016.  Details here:  http://www.clarkehistory.org/art-at-the-mill.html (scroll down to “About the Show”). 

Enjoy, life is joy we make one moment at a time.

  1. The colours really pop against the dark background, love the style of abstraction very bold.
