Color affects everything! My work is about color relationships and the energy that color can generate...paintings on silk and on canvas

Yesterday I made my way north to spend some time with Ticona who's mother had passed on a couple of weeks ago. Her name was Dorothy, the same as my mother's, and she had Alzheimer's also. Stories to share. Ticona is amazed how fast this grass has grown....snow lay there just a few weeks ago.
We went on to Galen Cheney's art show at Johnson State College, another shared experience.
Today we went to Brattleboro to meet up with Bruce's son, Will, and his wife Courtney. Summer has come on fast here. The apple blossoms held for 2 weeks, but when I went to get lily of the valley to take to our meeting they were already too aged. The lilacs went fast too. Now I am picking lupin and flocks.
Will and Courtney, to get back to the story, bring their dogs on these trips, so a dog walk is always part of the event. We found a lovely river walk.
Here they are, the family, with a baby on the way. Hurrah! New life coming to our midst.
Drawing with oil pastels on gessoed paper, 20x30+. I'm seeing a figure there in this viewing. Do you?
Before I started packing up my studio, I received an order of a dozen 12x12 canvases. I have enjoyed applying wax to these and embedding textures of fabrics and papers....and testing myself with a more neutral approach. It has been exciting to see art on a different level. Most of my studio has been moved to a classroom in an old schoolhouse in Barre. I'm sure my work will take another turn in the new surroundings. More to come. Happy weekend all!
