Just this week, I finished the 12th and possibly final painting for my upcoming show in July of this year here at the Northcoast Artists Gallery in Fort Bragg, CA where I am a member artist.
I say possibly the final painting because with two months to go before the show, there may be another painting or two somewhere in me that has not spoken her name. Sometimes the paintings that surprise me after I think I have finished a series are the most delightful and I think I've seen a woman with a raven on her head playing hide and seek in my studio....
Meanwhile, I am getting busy with designing and creating the Bohemian style jackets and jewelry that will be complimenting my paintings in the show. Some of you don't know this but I was a textile and clothing designer for 20 years before I began painting. It is exciting to be revisiting this first love of mine and hopefully, you will be excited by the beautiful art for wear garments, necklaces and earrings that are at this moment beginning to emerge in my studio.
