1548 Garnished

sold My final thesis is written and uploaded - I've had homework for two years - I (almost) do not know what to do with myself! Of course, there is still the studio work to button up before the thesis defense in September. The studio floor is currently a tangle of paper, paint and paper towels - today while painting I stepped in a palette - turning the bottom of my shoe into the most delightful monoprint device. still life, acrylic, 6" x 6"

1535 Fair Street

sold still life, acrylic, 6" x 6" (The above photo is a little blurry because I didn't scan it like I typically do.)
I'm back from Nantucket!  The Barnacle Inn, where I stayed had little arrangements in each window in the hallway - come to find out, no one on vacation is awake at five a.m., so no one missed this little flower. Below is today's demo and below that is the table full of fresh flowers that we painted. All of the flowers were grown at the Nantucket Oil Workshops School or by the students. And that little painting, above the table is a work in progress by a very talented and enthusiastic (and patient) eleven year old - this painting wasn't done for my class, but I had the pleasure of meeting her and watching her work for the two days. More photos and details tomorrow - and I miss everyone already!
