Asparagus Spears- SOLD

"Thanksgiving Asparagus No.2"

5"x 7" Oil on board

It is good to say “Hi” to fellow artists and friends. “HI!!!” I think I’m back to painting–finally.

In January we decided to move and the last six months have almost killed me. I'm getting too old for this moving thing. If you are an artist you have some idea of all the stuff I have!!! There is twenty five years of old illustration art that I can't throw away and props and on and on. Over the three months that the actual move took place the "stuff" grew. My husband and I just could not bring ourselves to scale down our possessions. I'm so glad that our new place has a basement!!!

My step back into painting was this commission. A collector wanted to purchase a previous painting that I had failed to mark "Sold" on my site. MY BAD- so I offered to paint them another one. Asparagus was a difficult subject the first time painted and still was a hard subject, especially to get back into the swing of things. I do think I made some improvement and hope the client will be happy with it.

More to come......

Okay, so it has been a while since I've paid you a visit. I hope you are all well and settled in now. I can empathize with the whole moving thing. What a nightmare it can be! An artist is essentially moving both home and business and it is truly exhausting. When we built the studio I thought, "Ah, I will never have to move again!" But now with the baby we are starting to think about the school district....Arrrgh!

Any way, beautiful work you are doing here. You have developed such a sensitive touch. Really lovely.
