Temmy has been part of my household for one year now. What an interesting year it’s been. She and Bella still don’t get along.

Here I go again
The restart of a painting.
I had a moment to paint this evening. I thought I’d show a couple pictures of paintings I’m working on. 4”x4” acrylic on wrapped canvas I’m going to have to look at this one under my studio lights to see if I’m really finished with this one or if I still have work to do, … Continue reading Blue Forest

I spent some time reading another book on painting this morning, then I got … Continue reading I’m not sure it’s progress
