I have been away for a week in Arizona. It is beautiful...a living desert....and the bonus is the nice warm temperatures.

Spent a day at the Grand cannot do it justice. It is simply the most breathtaking sight. Even saw an elk and a baby ....actually we almost walked right into the parent standing munching on a tree

Went on a hot air balloon over the desert.

I had a wonderful time. Lots of great painting inspirations!

My banner [as well as all the other Stouffville Studio Tour artists] is hanging on a lamppost in beautiful downtown Stouffville.

They look great!

Just a little less than a month away. Yikes

So yesterday I spent another wonderful day life drawing with some good results. Still not my thing but I gained a lot of knowledge and had a good time...what more could you ask for.

Then I went to the U2 concert .....amazing is the only word for the evening.....dome open and rock music by a great band...pretty full day!

So is it or isn't it

So this painting I thought was a bug ...snail really...but it has been pointed out that here is a dancer with her back arched back leaping in the air. She may or may not have on a coconut bra.


I think this needs more thought to see where I want to go with this painting

Great Workshop

Yesterday I attended a great life drawing workshop. Life drawing is really not my thing but I feel you can always benefit from trying something different to get inspired.

I had an exhausting but exhilarating day......just want to paint but life keeps interfering.

I am going to another workshop tomorrow on Sumi-e birds. Looking forward to that...... then maybe I will be able to squeeze some time in for some painting.

Busy Week

So this has been a busy week. Went to see Jersey Boys ...excellent show.

I did paint this interesting new creature.........haven't quite finished him.........not sure what he is, maybe a snail.

We shall see.
