I’ve been spending the evening putting finishing touches on paintings, wires on the backs of others and varnishing the finished pieces. I also decided tonight that the small painting I’ll give away on Sunday Night is the 5 x 7″ study of La Belle Crepe that I painted on March 1st. It is acrylic on Maple Art Board. So if you are on my mailing list & I draw your name, you may be become the owner of this petite painting Sunday Evening, I’ll be contacting the winner by email.
The Link Between Wall & Wacoutaacrylic on canvas2009
I have been working on this painting since the beginning of November, and have been fighting with it since the beginning! After several changes… and many walks through the alley to look at the crooked buildings of lowertown St Paul… tonight I was just about to fall asleep when I realized what I needed to change! An hour later I can finally say I am through fighting with this one, and can happily move on to the next and get some sleep!

Woman in the Window: 24 x 36″Acrylic on Board- for site specific project
Last weekend I completed a project that was something completely different to tackle with paint. A friend has an old window frame up at second story in her hallway. The house has been added on so there is wall on the other side of the window frame that has been left in place. It is a beautiful old victorian farm house, with a very playful but elegant decor inside. Most people may not notice this window frame high above thier heads, but if they do, this woman will now be watching all that passes through the hallway.
What to do on a sick day? It is not like it was when I was little, I almost remember sick days being fun! I’m catching up on some emails and organizing some of my computer files. Pretty boring compared to watching old movies from the library with my mom when I was a kid!
All of the trees are weighted down with snow, driving through the Upper Pennisula of Michigan today it was beautiful! Hope to post some photos up tomorrow when I return to St Paul MN, which I hear is also covered in snow. The snow makes for inspiration around every bend as the snow transforms the normal streets and brightens up the night .
