The Everyday Life of a Working Artist

Attention! My blog is moving to my website in early January 2016. If you are receiving daily emails about this blog you will continue to receive them after the switch. Until then, you might want to head on over to my new blog here!

Serenity ... hah! I think this week is one of my busiest weeks ever ... but as a mom, this is what I live for. Today I will drive one hour to watch my youngest play in a high school volleyball game. Then I will drive another hour and a half to watch my middle son's girlfriend play in a CIF semi-finals playoff soccer game. If they win they play in the championships this weekend! I am heartbroken I can't make the high school boys CIF semi-final soccer game today. But I had to draw the straw ... if you are not related to me (or in love with one of my boys) ... then I just can't watch your game this week. Sorry!
Then ... the Pac 10 swimming championships start tomorrow in Long Beach. So we will be driving down there twice a day for four days to watch our oldest swim. This weekend there are also more volleyball and baseball games (and maybe a soccer championship) and I am just not sure how I will be able to make it work. Somewhere in the middle of this I will find time to paint. I am not sure how, but I will.
So, if you think I am complaining you are so wrong! I love weeks like this!

Love the brush strokes on this one!

Maybe "Serenity" is a wish for the future...

Another bright and beautiful painting, Leslie! I (like many other artists) seem to be intimidated and shy away from the strong, high chroma, color that you use so well.

Though I have painted for years, it's a never ending learning journey.

Thanks for showing how to make rich color work.

Love all your boats...each so different with their own personality.
I miss those jam packed sports days...have fun!
