It's a miracle!.. I finished a painting!

'Tie a String" 36" x 36' , Acrylic, beeswax, ink, and graphite on canvas.

This piece I have been working and not working on since last winter. I sold it's pair right away, and since then, as it stood alone in my studio, it became something completely different. A little darker, but more relevant. It always takes me a few weeks and/or months to decide how I feel about a piece, so I need to let this one soak in. It is way too new. Just finished it this morning when I had two glorious morinng hours in the studio, during a wonderful snowfall. reminded me of Michigan in graduate school, looking out my studio windows during those two long winters there. Maybe it was the snow that nudged me along to finish the piece! So thank you winter snowfall!

New Studio up and running.....

Well here are some pictures of the studio I moved in to in June, yes.. LAST June!
But I am settled and working ... when I have some spare time.. and I am actually holding bi-weekly meeting of Naptime Studios.. A group of about 4-6 women bring their artwork and we meet in my studio and make work and have great conversation! The non book - book club for artists!
I have been inspired by as of late, and found some amazing things. One inparticular is Lisa Hurwitz, a great artist, and mother of two young boys.. She has really inspired me.. Please check her out at or her blog at
Her work is wonderful!

I was so inspired to start making work again, even if on a small scale... I opened my own shop on etsy.. check it out at

I will actually post some links soon...
Well am going to go prep some more photos for uploading. I have lots of new work to share.. I had lots of time to catch up with since it was actually April of last year since my last post with actual work on it!!
