Waiting for the Storm to Pass

Lately, I haven't been painting or posting much because I have been helping my partner run his company. I have had to put painting aside for awhile and even though I do miss it and think about it most of the time, I'm ok with it for now.

Recently, we had hurricane Florence directly hit Wilmington and caused mass devastation. We were without power for about 10 days and although we only had some flooding and lots of limbs down, we really came through unscathed unlike a lot of people even nearby our home - It's been very sad.

Because of all the quiet time, I've been slowly migrating back to the painting mindset and I painted this little sketch of Frida during the storm.
It felt good to sit and move
some paint around.

The End of Winter

"The End of Winter"
12 x 12"

view in my shop

This is my first painting of 2018.
It has been a tough winter and I am looking forward to some warm weather. The sound of Grackles always remind me of summer - cackling away in the trees - always busy doing something.

On another note, Chumley is doing much better, recovering to 100% - thank you to everyone who took part of the Studio Sale!

On New Years Eve we rushed Chumley to the ER with a bout of hemorrhagic pancreatitis - he ended up spending a day and 1/2 there on IVs to keep his blood pressure normal. He's home now and recuperating.

So, now is a really great time for a studio sale!
50% off all paintings!!
