Long Time, No Blog!

Tulips in Mercury Glass, 18 x 14, Oil Sketch

I've been accomplishing things, and having fun too... all paintings for the Huntsville Museum Gala this March are actually in Huntsville, I have been painting with less investment and more freedom, I taught THE most fun workshop last Sunday at Huff Harrington, and we leave tomorrow to see the kids in Alaska (not one's fave destination for January, but oh well)!  So things are good, perking along -- I am stretching my wings and hoping to sail this year on positive energy, and on appreciation for all of my new and old friends in this art life!

Reunion Provencal!

Hillside Memories, 20 x 20

Fun evening last night...some of the wonderful Provence travelers from last September joined me and Michael at our home for a petite reunion.  Everyone brought champagne, wine, hors d'oeuvres, various spices, dips, cheeses, and even some paintings!  We remembered our delightful 3 hour (oui!) lunches at some of the most charming restaurants in the countryside, as well as beautiful evenings at Les Murets, overlooking the Luberon.

New experiences and friends await as we anticipate this September's version of L'essence de Provence! Love it.
