Wind Shift

Wind Shift
Originally uploaded by colormuse

Today the wind kept blowing and shifting, but the weather cooled and I could tackle the wilderness of the yard. I even fixed the weed wacker when it stopped functioning. Yeah! My son is coming on Monday evening, traveling from Cameroon, Africa with his girlfriend Shannon. I have a real deadline to make this home more receptive to these guests. They'll be in Vermont for a few days and then off to CA before Ezra heads to Nicaragua for work. He does get around.

I haven't painted since the art fair. I've been 3 times to the studio, but it has been to shift work, in, then to make it seeable and the 3rd time, friends came to view. Fun to invite folks in to see the place and the paintings. I'll have to do that again.

Quick post, blogged from flickr. This painting found its resolution in the days just before the show. Shows up well in this image form. 12x12.
Hope you all find pleasures in this coming weekend.

Enjoy your family and all that it means to have them close...stories, laughter and good food to name a few!
Love the work...spare with color and composition...much like a breeze.

I'm curious about your weed wacker. Sounds like the sort of thing I might need if it ever gets back to raining here. Hope you enjoy having everyone round.

Hi Mary Ann, great excitement has produced some good cleaning energy.
"spare with color and composition" I like that, thanks.

Hi Annie, hardware store for weed wacker. It's electric, does edges and I take it up the stone path to upper garden and clear out around raspberries etc. Quick measure. I ought to dig out those weeds. Alas.

How wonderful to be seeing your son. I wonder what stories he will bring back from Africa. Enjoy!
