Nagging Doubt

Oil on canvas, 6″ x 6″.

The Prayer

Monotype, 22″ x 15″.

This monotype is one of twenty-one brand new monotypes that I’m currently showing at Red Delicious Press. I am grateful to Dave Wyzenbeek, Lisa Kerns, Susan Vaho, and Joe Higgins for the myriad of help they provided that allowed me to put up this show. I don’t think there are many open hours, and I don’t know  how many people will see this show. I don’t really care.

 

What I do care about – what elates me – is that my son is returning from ThemiddleofnowheregodforsakenNebraska to the greater Denver Metro area this week.

I don’t really know how to pray, but if I did I would think my prayer had been answered. We don’t have any fatted calves in the freezer, but we do have a really nice leg of lamb begging to be stuffed with sun dried tomatoes and spices and put to spin on the rotisserie. My heart swells.

 

All is Well

“Miss Kitty,” oil on wood, 6″ x 6″.

I will be concentrating more on these tiny paintings now in preparation for the Art Students League of Denver‘s Summer Art Market on June 9th & 10th.

I am proud to be sharing booth #33 at this art fair with the fantastic artist Claudia Roulier.

I am also happy to have a painting included in “Renewal” at Niza Knoll Gallery.

In short, all is well- spring always brings me a bit of hope and the sunshine feels like an answer to a prayer.

There is an unseen collaborator in the little painting above and to him I say- some flowers are too pretty to be squashed. And thank you for everything:)
