fresh coat of paint

I painted my studio and I am so pleased! The walls were a dull brown and without much natural light, it made the space feel confined. What a difference a fresh coat of crispy white paint makes! Now how to figure out how to get some better lighting in there! I have to deal with florescent lights 😦 – if you have any suggestions on how to improve this, I am open! Right now, I have studio lamps. They take up space so I am looking to mount something from above.

If you are in the area – we will have an Open Studio at the Bothwell in Livermore – Sat Feb 29th 11am – 3pm – we are near some amazing wineries so this could be a fun stop before or after some wine tasting!

Open Studios – June 27th and 28th

I know that this is months away, but I am happy to announce that I will be participating in the East Bay Open Studios (EBOS) in June. This year, I decided to show my work at the Firehouse Arts Center in Pleasanton. It is a beautiful, inspiration-filled setting and a perfect downtown Pleasanton location. I know that it will be a wonderful stop on your open studio tour!

June Artist Work Night

File_000 (34)I’ll be at the studio this Thursday – June 9th for Artist Work Night. I’m not sure what I will work on next. Of late, I have been drawn to musical themes – instruments and lyrics. I’m sure that I will keep going in this direction.

This is my travel pencil/pen box. It totally sums me up – playfulness is something I highly value. My daughter Emma added her touch to this box when she borrowed it for her own use (hello, orange pencil!).  I love that it’s in there – a connection to her earlier days. There’s also a clarinet reed holder in there (not sure why). I still absolutely adore the Powerpuff Girls (Buttercup is my girl). It was fun to get reacquainted with this box when I used it at the Figure Drawing Marathon. Hope to bring more playfulness to my work!

 

clouds in my coffee

This is an oil pastel painting that I did in 2009 “Clouds in my Coffee” – one of my lyric themes.

That Bari sax has so many intricacies- I hope to do it justice! This is part of my new series of work focused on instruments that are important in our lives. My daughter plays a mean Bari! 

Here’s other work connected to this series:
