Did I select this simple, yet promising, proverb to remind myself that spring IS to come? Well, it has been an unseasonably cold winter here. Even the old timers are saying they do not remember such a winter as this in Florida.
So yes, yes, YES, I am longing for spring and summer as I imagine most of you are too!
I hope you have managed to stay warm and productive. Beyond the normal things of life (both good and worrisome) and despite the cold…I’ve been painting and painting. Works in process for upcoming shows..one is on March 20 (first day of spring!!). I have been working on new pieces (about eight so far), finishing up some, and revisiting others. Various sizes but all my subjects and palettes are of spring and summer..lots of green ! I guess you could say I have been stepping into spring..on the canvas and within the paint.
As you can see this is not a large piece and another of my water and woods scenes. I am quite familiar with places as this, and soon I will be wandering in such again. I do not think this is quite finished as I am not totally happy with it, but it is close. I apologize for the quality of the image..not sure why I could not capture it better. Maybe because it is unfinished. :)
Well, I know this is short and lacking in content, but ’tis all time allows me now. I also know I haven’t answered some of you on my last post, and I am behind on emails again…you are all most kind! I plan to catch up soon. We won’t even talk about how far behind I am on visiting blogs! :O I have enjoyed chatting with some of you on facebook..that format suits me.. you can step in and out quickly. As of late, I seem to need that, and I can’t blame it all on busyness. Sometimes life resembles winter, and you simply want to be quieter..mind and mouth in dormancy for a spell. Allowing the energies to stir quietly within, until it the time is right. Like spring following winter….yes?
Good and creative energies to you,

Ps I’ll tell you more about the March 20 show soon. It is with Gail, my friend, a pottery artist..I love her work! I’ll also tell you about two solo shows ..I am not sure of the dates of those yet..possibly one this fall and the other in spring of 2011. Some commissioned work in the mix too..so at least I’ll have something to talk about! ta, ta for now.
*Note: I don’t know what happened on here with WordPress..I could not separate my paragraphs and I had other issues. ‘Tis frustrating to say the least!
