Gesso and Watercolor on Canvas Panel
4 x 5 inches

I'm muse-less these days so posting this small painting from a bit ago. 

I wonder if my muse is going to return sometime soon. 

I miss her.

This is a work in progress - and has been for a bit. I love how the orange flowers turned out, and am hesitant to add to them as I normally would. And I'm not even sure what type of leaves to add. 

So here it sits. I come by and look at it every so often to see if I'm inspired to complete it. Hasn't happened yet.. as you can tell.  :) 

One of these days it will be completed. For now it's at a standstill. 

What are you working on this week?

Low Tide at Cornwall Beach

There is this little beach at the end of Cornwall Avenue that is little used and great to go to wander at low tide. I especially like the pilings that are deteriorating, they look like sentinels along the shore.

A view from the beach just a bit past the pilings.

Managed to get a shot of a Seagull resting up on an old rusty float. He was not into posing.

Beatix Potter - Rescued Books

I adore the Beatrix Potter stories, and loved reading them to my kids. I came across a set of Beatrix Potters books from the 1970s... that were water damaged and beginning to falling apart. The illustrations, however, were (mostly) in good or fine condition. So I went ahead and bought them. The rescued book pages make adorable framed prints!
What a perfect idea to decorate a childs room!

Besides using some in my journal, I'm listing several of these adorable book pages as ephemera in my Vintage shop over the next few days.  If you're interested, take a peek. 

Have a fabulous weekend!

From the Garden - Wild Roses

Nootka roses in the back "wild" area behind the gate. These lovelies have climbed to the top of the Hawthon tree, which you can see in the picture below:  
It's not a great picture but you get the idea. 

I love this time of year.

Field of Sunflowers

From the archives:  Field of Sunflowers. 
Mixed Media on Muslin

Since I have not finished a new piece this week, I am sharing one of my older works.
A lot of things were happening this week...sisters gallery opening, birthday party out of town, grand nieces concert... and there just not enough time to be in the studio for some serious art. I missed it.

Sharing with Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristin.

What's in my Studio... and EPSTeam Treasury Winning Week

A mess on the computer desk... with a small book and some vintage buttons waiting to be listing in my Vintage Etsy shop. The rolodex, glasses case and display ATCs are always there on the left. And of course the cords connecting the USB hub and camera hook up. 

Totally stoked for my Vintage shop( to be "Treasury winner" this week with my favorite Etsy team -  Etsy Pickers and Sellers Team (EPSTeam)! A gazillion treasuries (well, 28 so far) featuring my item and one from Victoria of A fun time is being had by all!

I love being part of a fun, cooperative and caring team! They are a fabulous group of supportive people, and really I wish I had such a group here locally. Seriously, it seems like most of the supportive people I have in my life are online or at-a-distant art friends.
Not sure what that says, other than I'm not apparently not searching out and developing this locally. I must work on that.

Here's the item I chose with Fathers Day in Mind
Healey Coachworks Solid Brass Precision Tire Gauge
And here's Victoria's ... isn't this the cutest little rabbit?
Spanish Rabbit Jam Pot

In other news, the garden is growing by leaps and bounds. Here's a shot of some of the foxglove that is scattered about the yard. They are one of my favorite garden flowers.

Hope your week is going well!
