Adversity is like a strong wind. It tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that we see ourselves as we really are.

The Italian Job
This favorite painting of mine is still up for grabs. I thought for sure it would be scooped up by one of my regular Etsy customers by now. This holiday season is shaping up to be a good one for me after a slow start and for that I am very grateful. On another note, my son Sam has been doing much better since he had extensive dental work. It breaks my heart ever time I think about how much pain he was in for months and being misdiagnosed as behavior problems! I have recommitted my main focus to working on his communication skills or lack of them. We seem to always be starting over in that department.
I feel energized and optimistic about 20011. I can't wait to begin a new body of work.

Post Office~ I Love Lucy Style!
BTW I briefly hired my son Max to take care of these duties so I could get to my real job PAINTING. That was short lived when he came home with a $54.00 receipt for shipping one small painting ! He said yes to everything the post office clerk offered about sending the package. I don't have the patience and time to hire an assistant I guess.
I am looking forward to 2011 and sharing all the new directions I am going with my work. For now, it's back to the post office even though I know there is a better way.

Winner Of My Fine Art Giveaway is........
Karena has won my fine art giveaway. She will be receiving this print matted and framed.
Friday, December 10, 2010
I decided to go in a more whimsical direction with this latest painting. I wanted to bring together my love of interiors, textiles and nature (I know very Matisse like .) You can make up your own story as you look at this seated woman. She ended up looking a lot like my third oldest sister Susan in a way. This was not my intent but it works for many reasons.
This painting is 11x14 . stretched canvas. For sale in my etsy shop

Partridge on an Orange Bench
This is my newest painting. When I was in Sicily a year ago, my sisters and I were very lost down a old dirt road. I actually saw a partridge just like this one in a yard under an orange tree. What a beautiful site. this painting is 11x14 done on stretched cotton and linen. the sides have been painted so no frame is needed.

This was one of those paintings that I struggled with and kept making changes. I almost gave up on it this morning but I am glad I stuck with it. It's another small piece but says a lot. 8x10 on stretched cotton and linen for sale in my etsy shop.
