April 28th, Thursday!

Can you believe April is almost over?!  This year is simply passing before my eyes!  Does this always happen as you get older?  When I was younger, I must not have been enjoying life as much, since so much of it seemed to take forever....  but NOW!  Man!  I try to keep track of every incredible beautiful moment!
Love love love!

Here are a couple lovely kitty commissions!
Come see me tomorrow night at Diamonds!  I just picked up a trunkful of adult beverages...  maybe I should pick up some non-alchoholic.... naw, I'll just get a pot pf coffee or something from Diamonds!

April 26th, Tuesday

Wow.  What a long rainy, squirmy adolescent-filled day it has been...   All junior high today, all kinds of misdirected energy... we're going on a field trip tomorrow to the Science Museum to see KING TUT!  They must just be as excited as I am....

So Jan asked me to paint an art bike and an art car for the art car parade stuff this year-  this is what I have so far~
Oh, and if you are in town this weekend and NEED some fun gifts ideas for graduations and weddings and Mother's Day, come see me!  I'm at the Historic Pilney Building on West 7th at Randolph from 10 to 5, Saturday only!  There are a pile of creative, exceptional, hand-made LOCAL artists!
Oh geez
I almost forgot the "20 CATS (Or MORE) in 30 DAYS" Opening is THIS FRIDAY at Diamond's from 6 to 8pm!  Diamond's is on Central ave, a bit north of the Northrup King, a titch south of 18th!
see ya somewhere!

April 20, Wed~

Wahoo~  it SNOWED this morning... I took some breathtaking photos on my way to work along the River Road and ran out of memory on my camera because I hadn't erased the many photos of my students' artwork I keep taking to put on our Artsonia site!  It hadn't even occurred to me before to think maybe you all would be interested in seeing what my kids do~ but here's your chance! and your link~
and here are a couple paintings I've been working on~  this really is a new action in my life I must admit, this strong attempt to paint at least a few times a week if not daily~  and I am pretty happy with my results.  Unfortunately, I am also only human and need to go to bed soon~
any comments are welcome, esp on the "38thSt" one-  I can't tell if it makes visual sense or not...

Saturday April 9, 2011

Whew!  Haven't been able to paint in a few days, but I have been arty in art functions~  mom and I were just at Private Art (Private Art Gallery, Susan St. John, 25 St. Albans St. South, St. Paul, MN 55105, 651-227-1449, for an opening for Hazel Belvoe's work and it turned out to be a hoot!  It is a salon setting style gallery, and I had been there in 2009 for Eleanor McGough's opening  and loved that show so it was interesting to see new work hanging.  It's one of those great brownstones behind Dixie's on Grand Ave, around the corner on St. Alban's...
ANYWAY, I thought I'd post a couple commissions I just delivered to their owner~  and admit that seeing other's art always makes me want to paint.  So you might ask why the heck am I posting this instead of painting?!?!   Hmmmm....
Good question....

where's my brushes?
