I enjoy painting the Buddha – he starts out a mess of mosaic-like splotches of paint – completely unnerving beginning that slowly, slowly, takes shape and becomes a vibrant being….
SOLD – I usually have a large painting in the works along with my daily paintings. Daily paintings are small, quick, and fresh. This painting, however, took days and days with glazes drying between glazes. I also painted it only at certain times in the morning so I could capture the light at just the right angle.

Yes – painting most every day. Appreciating the light that streams in through the window and my new daylight clip-on lamp that illuminates the subject day and night!
Joined a life-drawing group a few weeks back. Such a challenge to capture the live human form in 25 minute poses – it’s the process rather than the product at this point. I taught life-drawing every Wednesday night for more than 5 years in my Evergreen Art School and honed my skill because of it…now I’m a bit rusty….but back in the saddle.

Best news: someone has stepped forward to identify the little girl – her cousin Robyn. The little girl is Sienna and kitty is Milo – they live in Australia!!
