Hello Friends ~

How have you been this week? The weather has been fine in DC, warming up and sunnier than it was for most of April. Yippee, summer is nearing! My favorite season J

The reason for the minimal blog posting lately is because I have been busy working on new paintings for the Artomatic Show opening at the end of the month. I am working on a new still life series I will share with you in a few weeks.

A few weeks ago, I was given a second easel, so both of my easels have now been put to use. I paint in my old studio space (the breakfast area) when the natural light is not good enough to paint in my new studio space (the dining room). All of my day has been dedicated to completing these paintings and with my back feeling better, it is fun to be able to put in the pain free hours and paint to my heart’s content. I have been making sure I take breaks, rest, go out for walks, and all the other things my physical therapists recommends. I do not want a repeat of April, where I was out of commission for almost 13 days because of pain. During the breaks I will sometimes sketch my kitty, Slim, here are some 5 minute sketches of her.
