Where I've been, where I'll be.

Since I started blogging my posts have been sporadic, sometimes I can post regularly and other times I post infrequently.  Right now is an infrequent time. 
Summer.  Usually the time I can post alot.  Not so this year. 

I've been working on Curriculum writing. 2-4 hours for the last two weeks. Hopefully just one more week.  (tedium)

                                                                  where else and what else?

hangin' out with this little guy.

the laundry.

we're building the deck for the barn/studio.  Yaaaay!!

and then there's the garden.  growin' like crazy!

If I don't post...I'll be in the studio




starting new paintings.

(just made arrangements to do a solo exhibit at our local hospital for this fall)

yikes!  lots to paint and thankfully I've got lots of ideas!

While I may not post for a while, I'll be visiting your blogs, checking out what's happening in your lives and with your art!

A Peak at the Exhibit at The Flying Monkey Pub~New Landscape Paintings

Last Friday was the Tremont Art Walk.  I have 19 works on exhibit at The Flying Monkey Pub.  What's fun about the Tremont Art Walk is that every business is open for the event.  Art is everywhere, restaurants, pubs, galleries and shops.  It was a warm, beautiful night and Tremont was packed with people.  A bunch of us got together to see my work, have some fun and walk around a bit.  Here's a sampling of some of my work that is hanging. It will hang until August 10th.  If you're in Cleveland, or already live in the area, stop by and see the show.

New Puppy, New Painting

Larry the Dog Sedivy

Last year in February we said goodbye to our best dog,  Woody after spending 15 wonderful years together.  It took a year or so before we began to think of  having a dog around, although we still missed him.  So much.
My daughter and I have been visiting the local shelters for a few months. Nothing grabbed our hearts.  Then we met Larry.  (His siblings were Curly and Mo). 
He's been with us for a week and he is working his way into our hearts and home with all his puppy cuteness and personality.  I've got a big space in my heart where Woody rests, but its funny how hearts work.  Ours have opened up with ease and made space for this little guy. 

Soft Morning
36 x 42
Oil on Canvas

Last year I worked on a commission which I struggled with the during the entire process.  Nothing ever rang true, although I tried to convince myself otherwise.  So, after the buyer wasn't interested in it, I covered it in red and waited for inspiration.  Which came while I was out birding one soft morning.  The day was foggy, soft and gorgeous.  I took lots of reference photos.  
This is what I came up with.
It's leaving tomorrow to hang in a solo exhibition in Tremont.  (nice arty area in Cleveland)
And on that note, gotta run.....so much to do for the show!
