My open studio was great- did I remember to take pictures of the people? DUH! NO!

But here is the studio right at noon! Thank you to everyone who came and big hugs to you who couldnt, I know its alot to ask during this time.

 I drew the winners name yesterday for a free painting -and  the winner is MARY SHEEHAN WINN! With a name like that she can't help but WINN!

Mary is an amazing artist, she is one of the Girls Just Wanna Paint group and she is one of the reasons why I started this blog so many years ago.  Congrats Mary!

 I hope you all stay well and we are going to get through this pandemic. There is a light at the end of the tunnel! In the meantime, drink lots of tea or whatever and read books, binge on shows and do arts and crafts! Get cozy!

Open Studio and Giveaway!

 Dear Followers!

It's been a year since I posted. A year! I guess the other forms of social media have taken me away from this- but I am going to send you an invitation to my open studio next Sunday, November 15. I have been making slideshows on my youtube channel, sort of virtual bin flip through. This year I will have DEEP discounts, if you see something on the video please inquire. I know its unlikely that I'll get a crowd, and I am mandating masks and social distancing. We will have it mostly all outside. Pray for good weather!

 I hope each of you and your family are well.

If you reply to this email I will put your name in the hat for a free painting! To be revealed next week.

All the best,

Saying Goodbye to my little buddy

We had to put our corgi Winnie down yesterday, she was 13 1/2 and was suffering from degenerative mylopothy, a disease that effects the spine and basically is the canine equivalent of ALS.
She was still eating, and not in pain, but was getting increasingly frustrated and just had no quality of life left. It's debatable - is it easier to lose a pet tragically in an accident? or to wait the long wait to the time appointed. Neither one is good at all.
My vet came to my house  and gently put her to sleep outside by my water garden. It was peaceful, she wasn't scared, but heart wrenching to say the least.
I am so grateful for the happy times we had with her, and will miss her so much. I've been working on pictures and models of her all summer, preparing I guess.

She was the prettiest girl.

I'm working on this painting of her.

This was a fun sculpture  I made at camp with paperclay.

Here she is on her last day.

My friend Mary dropped off these beautiful flowers and a card from my girlfriends. 
It's my "rainbow bridge".

Some sketches on the last day.
I'm so sad, but moving on.
I have two granddogs, and that helps.
I don't blog a lot these days, thanks for reading.

Girls Just Wanna Paint challenger- "Maine"

This is an acrylic done from a photo I shot last year up on Gott's Island. I tried to keep it simple- It's on a black primed canvas  12 "x 24".
See all the other Maine paintings here!
We are celebrating our 10 year anniversary of this challenge group. Some very special peeps have been and are still part of this group.
