Happy New Year!

Now that all the ‘holiday’ stuff is done with i’m happily adapting to my new status of ‘on sabbatical’ for the next 3 months. Closed down the mudroom mid December after giving it a really good clean, reorganized it to accommodate the new to me slab roller!

I’ve been deeply immersed in reading, painting, taking photographs….reading about taking photographs, reading about painting……all very soul satisfying! With winter comes a more introspective time for most of us, and it is also a time for me to try and get myself back into shape. Walking most days, even when it has been -20 out there, i’m determined to kick off the extra few pounds that always seem to accumulate over the summer!

My amazing amaryllis is giving me an abundance of inspiration….here are a few ‘sketches’, done on stone paper, 6″ x 8″ and one pastel painting, all derived from a single, black and white macro image:

Then the pastel painting, 12″ x 16″ on uart sanded paper.

I’m extremely lucky to find myself in a position to stop work for a few months and delve into my other passions…..as of yet, i don’t miss the mudroom!

    Great to see all the different variations and the original photograph.

    Thats great that you”ve transitioned into flat surface and still like flowing forms. The potter comes through with the shading effects, but the color is just lovely!
