A Few Favorites


A Few Favorites

     Well, I did it...picked a color for my kitchen.  Even though I am an artist and studied interior design for a time....I still had to go run my decision by a designer friend who helped me pick just the RIGHT shade of apricot.  I couldn't wait to come home and get some of that color up on the walls!  When I finally got enough area to get the FEELING...I felt like I was in a bottle of Pepto Bismol.  Why is this process not filled with delight and a sense of adventure??  I might be exaggerating a bit about the Pepto is a little warmer and there is a decided glow coming from my kitchen.....  Well nothing that a martini and a good movie can't cure, right????  I am so excited to have my middle son, Sean, home tomorrow and my oldest, Patrick, here for Easter.  Andrew is up at Tech and I think there is a game this weekend and he is involved with a run for Cancer so he will not be here for the Easter Bunny. Good thing he doesn't read my blog. :-)  I think I am gonna get a bunch of  grief what for my Pink kitchen!!  O.K. let it go Norma.
     My collage today is in lieu of any new works.  I have had a really busy week and thought I would do one of some of my personal favorit s.  Some were because I developed a relationship with the little creature while painting it or was transported to another place or learned something or perhaps just enjoyed a new color or painting surface.  
     Lately, I have been getting a lot of requests to do workshops or ongoing classes.  I would love to have some feedback on what subjects you would like to see me teach or a specific technique such as palette knife work or impasto painting.  I love, love, love, color so that might make a good one day workshop to learn a bit about color mixing and how to use analagous colors to create forms and shadows instead of complentary colors.  That is my favorite way to do it.  I will look forward to hearing from you!  Have a wonderful Easter and thanks so much for checking in with me!
