I did it! Woo-hoo! It’s been a lot of fun but I’m also glad to be done with it. Looking forward to working on some larger, more time intensive pieces now -and making monotypes tomorrow!

30 in 30 Day 16 – Island Dream

A tiny 4″ x 4″ oil on canvas today. Not sure where this came from, really – my subconscious must be liking the thought of drinking Mojitos on a beach somewhere. It’s not going to happen anytime soon, but it’s a nice dream nonetheless. A snowstorm has begun in Denver.

My Imaginary Therapist’s Very Real Cat Stares at Something that Isn’t There



and ten more.


I haven’t abandoned my 30 paintings in 30 days project, though I have neglected posting it to this blog.

As of today –  day 28- I have completed 21 pieces. I will need to finish 9 things in 2 days to complete successfully the challenge. It might not happen.

It probably won’t. And that’s okay.

I’ve enjoyed the project tremendously and will try it again. And hopefully get a little closer next time. Just before the portrait of my imaginary therapist’s real cat, I finished a little watercolor that I forgot to take a picture of. Honest, I did. The rest are below.

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:)
