Leaning Telephone Pole, 2008, Oil on Panel, 12x16
I have been trying to get a post up for the last few days but there has been so much going on that I have hardly had a minute to sit down at my desk. Well, except for the 2 hours I spent Tuesday evening researching ducks.
(A friend of mine is planning to order some ducks and when you get them through the mail you have to get a certain number so they are warm enough and since she doesn't want so many we may split the order. Um, because I actually need more to do each day. So I am trying to figure out how and where to house them which is a pesky issue, mostly because of our killer dog, Penny.)
Anyway, on Tuesday I drove to Saratoga Springs to deliver my work to Gallery 100. I had a very nice visit with Deb (the owner) and Nancy (the director) and on the drive there I was able to take some nice photos to use as reference, since the light was amazing. Oh and I have to say that I am now even more in love with my new car-the middle row of seats folds down (unlike in my old car) and it was a breeze loading it up with paintings. I hardly had to even stack anything.
Since I hadn't been able to get any painting done on Monday or Tuesday, I got right into the studio yesterday morning. I am working on a commission, which has taken me forever to get to and now finally I am at the color stage. I worked all morning, then had to go to an appointment, and then went right back into the studio when I got back home. The kids got home, took my son to his scout meeting, took the girls out to eat, picked up my son and went home, just in time to fold laundry while watching one of my favorite shows, Criminal Minds.
Today is more of the same, studio, midday appointment, studio again. And probably more laundry too.
