Eating In Style

 Good eats.  Zucchini, shredded cabbage and onion.
Sautéed to a perfect soft crunch.

I ate it all! & it was delicious!

But then, what would taste bad in Jan Miller's Frog Bowl!

Oil Painting With Cold Wax

This weekend I was lucky enough to be included in
a cold wax oil painting class taught by Leslie Stokes,
an accomplished painter who maintains a space at

Class participants hard at work.

Allie Comer and Lee Whitridge work on their paintings.
The process begs abstract!  It can be freeing or challenging,
depending on how attached one is to image and subject matter.

Sherry Horton works on multiple paintings to keep the creative flow going.
Holly Theuns (background) assesses her progress.

My end results.  One landscape on the far right.
The others?  Well . . . it was challenging and exhausting
for me to push beyond my imagery to the abstract.

I found the medium to be exquisite for surface richness.
I thoroughly enjoyed the medium and the process.  As an artist,
I believe wholeheartedly in the process.  This workshop pushed
the process to the max.  It was good.

I'm still working on the abstract element!

Thank you Leslie!

Late Night In The Studio

Happy Accidents

While working on my collages, sometimes the piles of paper across the table create their own happy arrangements.  Below are a few.

The clown prods the headless lion to perform
as the crab does a balancing act. 

Detail of the crab.
