Okay, okay....yes it has been a loooooong time since I posted. Call it a hiatus.
But, I have been checking in on the blogs I follow, reading, looking, keeping up with your art and art lives.
The two paintings posted below are some of the results of a workshop I took this summer with Kathleen Elsey at the Cuyahoga Valley Arts Center. She is a wonderful instructor and wonderful painter! Please visit her site and check out all of her impressive paintings.

The top painting was done while at the workshop; Blue Vase was painted in my back yard a few weeks after the workshop. It was fun to shift away from the landscape as subject matter and work with still life compositions. What a pleasure too, to spend entire days painting and painting and painting....with like minded souls. Complete immersion.
