P!NK

In April my youngest son and I saw PINK in concert. We originally had tickets for the whole family for 2018, but she was ill and the concert was rescheduled. By the time the concert came around the following year B and D were no longer interested, so I used the money that was already… Continue reading →

20th anniversary

On January 9th, 1999 my husband and I celebrated our 20th Anniversary! It’s been a wild ride– combining two cultures and personalities hasn’t always been easy, but then again what marriage is? We complement each other very well: he’s the engineer with a crazy work ethic who’s very nurturing and takes good care of all… Continue reading →

2018

After my right Right Elbow replacement, I didn’t paint for for nearly two years! Partly because I got distracted with other interests and partly due to injuries — which I’ll explain in a bit.

The four-year project, directed by a Polish husband and wife team was brought to life by 120 artists from around the world. Together, they created the first ever hand-painted movie. Told through the eyes of the Postman’s son,… Continue reading →

Originally we were thinking of doing a big vacation to California, but because I had no idea of how the recuperation would go and my husband’s work travel schedule, we had… Continue reading →

Catching Up

It’s been a very long time since I posted anything let alone created a piece of art. Summer has come and gone, the school year has begun, and Fall is upon us. My artistic life has been put on hold, yet again.  It’s a darn good thing I’m not relying on this gig to make… Continue reading →

Abstract Figures

Last week I took a 3-day workshop on abstracting figures. I’ve been wanting to really loosen up in my work and have this idea of just slapping on paint, stepping back, and voila, I’ve created a masterpiece! While I know that’s a pipedream, I’d like to work towards it anyway. So, this workshop was exactly… Continue reading →
