This piece is a part of my upcoming show at the Alexander House in Port Edwards, WI. The show opens next Friday, November 20th, with a reception from 5 - 8 pm. I am thrilled to be sharing the gallery space with ceramic artist Joe Clark from Port Edwards. 

A work-in-progress shot – I often begin with a transparent under painting and then build upon that with opaque paint mixtures. There is a lot of stepping back, thinking twice, and painting once. And then some scraping and trying it again. ;-)

"Friends" keeping me company in the studio: 
Audiobook:  Big Magic (audio book) by Elizabeth Gilbert (LOVED it, btw)
Music:  Amy Grant
Podcast:  Artists Helping Artists with Leslie Saeta
Reading:  I Can See Clearly Now by Dr. Wayne Dyer

Just a reminder that there are few spots left in the Playing with Paint class this Saturday, November 14, from 10 am - 1 pm. Details are here.
