"The New Sailboat" is a 5x7 pastel on Pastelbord. Bidding starts at $100, or buy now for $450.
If any of one's been wondering where I've been, I've been teaching in the Asheville area. Two full workshops (18 students each). And the whole time I'm holding these workshops I'm terrified that I'll oversleep and 18 people will be standing around tapping their feet, looking at their watches, wondering where the teacher is. So I wake up on the hour every night to check the clock. Needless to say, after 7 days I was exhausted. So I slept when I got home, dealt with 500 emails (490 of which were offers to enlarge...never mind), waded through all my mail (most of which were new credit card offers).
So I'm back, trying get some work done in the studio, trying to figure out how I can make time to get my little 4 year old grandson to come play, and trying to enjoy this beautiful fall. All of the sudden there's beautiful texture all around me. Something I never noticed all summer long. Makes me want to paint it, but I'd never be able to capture it. Better just enjoy it.
