Flying and Sisters

6" x 8"

Sorry kind Reader, I'm sure you've been thinking I dropped off the face of the art world. Actually I finished "Flying" last year before the holidays, and "Sisters more recently. Times are just bustling with family birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, and in-law visits, not to mention three different workshops I led. But the holidays are behind us and I am going full throttle. My littlest has turned five. That's right- He's SCHOOL aged. granted he isn't in kindergarten yet BUT just knowing before this year is out I will have more regular painting time is enormous. It is incfredibly difficult to be an artist mom with little ones running about. Creating art is alluring and intense and it gives one grey hairs trying to be simultaneously mom and artist. It is, admittedly, when I loose my patience. So I look forward to quality time with my studio all morning, and quality time with my children all afternoon.
At any rate, here they are- two new watercolors- painted on the two mornings a week my now 5 year old is in preschool.

Do you know what movie still I borrowed this image from? I'll give you a clue- it was a black and white movie made in a country I get to visit next month. !!
