Will They?


I have been working to get more glow in my paintings and am finally succeeding. I am adding a little gouache and acrylic to parts of the painting. Can you tell that all the animals are wondering if these two creatures will become a couple?

I know they have been spending a lot of time together.

I picked this work up at the framers today. I decided to use a cherry frame and am so pleased I did. I feel the good karma in this painting.

Sometimes I am asked how long it takes for me to make a painting like this. I kept track of the hours and yes, this took 43 hours to do.

This weekend brings lots of nice events. I am planning to pick quince at Rocky Brook Orchard. Greg, the owner, has emailed me that the last of the quince will be ripe this weekend.  I love to make quince jam and quince paste.

I am gallery sitting at The Art Stable Gallery Westport on Saturday (stop in for a glass of champagne, to see all the new artworks, and to see what painting I will be working on).

On Sunday I have will be going to the opening of  ” BIRDS OF A FEATHER” at Kathrine Lovell’s Gallery and Studio at Tiverton Four Corners. The opening is from 1PM to 5PM and has some really cool work. I have 3 pieces in this exhibit. Kitty’s (Kathrine Lovell) openings have earned a reputation for a rocking good time so if you are in the area you will not be disappointed.

Will They?  is a 12″ by 9″ mixed media (first time I have used that term for these works) framed in a cherry frame.

    This new piece is just delightful! The mix of new medium definitely adds depth. 43 hours!!! I’m not surprised since there is so much detail in your work.

    I wish I could see the glow from the online photo – I’m settling for imagining it for now. I didn’t count them all but I love all the creatures looking at the couple…
