Paint & Clouds

Work Station

WORK. My busiest month of 2012 is swiftly approaching. I'm so excited. Since taking this year off from participating in fairs, I've had a lot more time to focus on painting and finding a little more direction - for now.

I think this is finally the year I make a calendar. I've been wanting to make one for years and years and it always gets to be October and I haven't started it yet. I wanted to make a small collection of related paintings to bring to Open Studios and 12 is a nice round number so the calendar will finally be realized. The 2013 Nature in New England calendar will hopefully be done before the end of September. Fingers crossed. (Above are four of the months' illustrations.)

And now some clouds.

Aside from the calendar and getting my ducks in a row for Open Studios, I think I've finally found a direction for my Washington Street Art Center show. Our theme is about process and the passage of time. I'm going to be focusing on medicinal plants.

So much to do. I love it all.


p.s. The cats are super cool. Cats!


  1. Love your paintings! I saw some of your cards at Arcworks and they're awesome :)

  2. Marshmallow Root has many medicinal values and a very pretty flower as well.
    I can't wait to see your calendar!
