we've committed to re-commit to our weekly painting gatherings in 2016
we paint, we share, we solve all our art world problems
grateful indeed for this tribe
a commitment to paint our way into the new year...we began doing this 3 years ago and it opened us all up to new creativity and artful discussion
this animal emerged from my paint surrounded by guardian ravens
Patti's start to a series of chair paintings...
and Katy's rabbit bounding into the deep blue dusk
Our weekly painting parties will be expanding
to an empty store front near you...

something will happen...the week of November 16th...
Patti layering it on
Cannot get enough
of painting these bright blooms
call lilies like white hot flames
and we paint...week after week
...chatting and sipping wine,
our answer to the paint and sip craze
Another week of postcards from paradise
Please don't forget...if you are in town, stop by the Museum and vote for me! You have until June 12th, don't delay, vote today!
We are having no fun at all...painting together...
the paintings keep coming...we're looking to have a pop up gallery (impromptu art shows that spring up in empty commercial/retail spaces) show/party this summer
where we'll share all our colorful creations...
that are growing and multiplying...
this is my paradise...more postacards from paradise
This has become a habit...meeting here in the blue dusk
to paint the colors of the day
birds take flight
and prayer flags gently sway
in a swirl of connectedness...
we raise our glasses
to the shared bonds and warm glow
more Haiku my heart at Recuerda mi Corazon
It's fun...it's theraputic...it's just what the doctor ordered...
painting once a week with the girls
if it doesn't work out....you paint over it...like I did with this one.
And then we got snow...in a big way!
Melly liked playing in it...Olive not so much.
white stuff still falling
warm saturated color
a winter contrast
forgot it was Friday...
I would highly recommend...gathering some friends to play with paint...
some of us were out of town...
some had other commitments...but Char and I spent a couple hours together...painting
Char's beautiful couple that echo and compliment her sculpture
I was painting big poppy seed pods on red rosin paper that remind me of a little family...
this is a new year's resolution we won't break.
2012 brings us together to paint, we are not all painters....
some of us are....
we are finding our voices by painting together
it will be interesting to see
where we are a few months down the road
A way to spark some fun...and play and stretch...and maybe even a little growth
some girl friends are gathering to paint and play in the new year
we call it the Chamber of Art...where ideas fly and creativity spills
wishing you all a happy healthy and creative new year
Here I am.
