Rain Delay

It's that time of year. I love listening to the Texas Rangers on the radio.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

The Lesson

This is my other painting from Abbey's wonderful workshop. I already miss everyone and beautiful Sedona. Praying that the Slide fire is soon extinguished. My heart goes out to all those affected by it.

Abbey Ryan Workshop

My friend, Kim, and I just returned home from spending nine, fun-filled days traveling and painting together. We attended Abbey Ryan's workshop in Sedona and met the most wonderful group of painters! Of course, painting with Abbey was the highlight of our trip. She is so incredibly talented, and I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to study with her again this year.

As always, she has left me feeling inspired. I'm looking forward to spending this week painting in my little studio here at home, so I had better get busy. I hope your week is off to a great beginning!

Happy painting!

Fruit of the Vine

I'm preparing to paint my studio in a few weeks, so I'm experimenting with possible color choices. This color -- used as the background --  is Sand Dollar by Sherwin-Williams. I would like to simplify my still life set up and stop using fabrics for my backgrounds. So, painting the walls a neutral shade seems the best option. If you have any ideas, please let me know!
