A whole lot of new...


Well, there is a whole lot of new going on around here these days. I have a new, slightly shorter, much more layered haircut, I am loving a few new pieces of GORGEOUS jewelry from a new friend and I am especially excited about having so many new paintings in the works. As soon as the third child was out the door for school (after a really low key and fun 2 week break) I was in the studio waxing blocks and laying out snippets of newsprint and color and creating stories for this large collection. Next, I will be using pigment sticks and oilbars to paint the backgrounds before I start the layering process, but I thought I would share this first step and say a quick hello before the day flies by. I hope your week is off to creative and productive start too : )

Hi Beth! I have curly hair too and short is a great change... less to deal with! And PERFECT for earrings. :) I LOVE seeing the layout of your pieces in the studio. I showed my mom you work that I so proudly own, and she loves it. She's also an artist and a very successful interior designer with great taste in art... well, it's the same as mine.. so I guess I'm also complimenting myself.... ;o)
Love your blog.
