Fig Love

File_000 (25)

I saw figs in Trader Joe’s this weekend and just had to get them. Luckily, I am the only one in my home who loves this kick ass fruit. (all for me!) As I painted them, I was struck by the many subtle colors and tones in there. I’ll keep doing research on these yummy subjects – ah, the sacrifices of an artist!

Finishing touches…

I was just in the studio this Friday morning. It feels great to be home after 1 1/2 weeks in New York. We had an amazing time in Buffalo and NYC. It’s nice to have the day to do as I wish.

This safety pin is part of my “sewing” series and it was also part of my “what the fuck is happening to our County series?!” ¬†People were wearing safety pins to let others know that you are a safe being (to combat the increase in hate crimes since the election). Doing art, reading, and getting a good work out helps me deal with the ugliness in the world.

 

 

 

 

Are your going to Alameda County Fair?

It was a fun afternoon at the Alameda County Fair – my daughter played bari sax at the horse race stadium with her middle school band. It was such a wonderful year of music at her middle school – I feel so fortunate that we are part of the music community.

Today was a perfectly beautiful day – not too hot! We headed over to the adult art area and found my painting on display. I don’t know if I will ever get use to this experience of seeing my art in some place other than my studio or home.

Overall, it was a beautiful day!

Moving on up…

I am mostly set up in my new art studio. We had to move out of the Downtown Studio space so that the city can develop on that prime location space. Now, I am in this multi-use facility called the Bothwell. I am hoping that I set it up for my best creative possibilities to emerge. Here’s to the possibilities!
