Back in the studio

It feels like forever since I could again wield my paintbrush, and longer still since I could sit down to write a post.  It has been turbulent….Image


As you can see, I decided pouring paint over my troubles was the best way to go.  Covers the goo and cheers me up in one go.

Somewhere in the past few weeks, spring turned up….then left….came back….my garden is lush but I’m back in a sweatshirt today.  No complaints, though, as it is another sparkling clear day outside.  Here is my latest painting:


I started it while teaching class.  I really struggled with it, too.  I think painting it with people watching freaked me out. Every time I teach I learn so much too.  What a wonderful experience, even though I get so nervous I secretly hope nobody will show up.  Nine women did, and we had a blast together all 5 weeks.  I feel so blessed.

So, let’s see.  Class, over.  Unauthorized charges to bank account, dealt with.  Car…..well.  Today I took it to an auto body shop whose website claims they love Bugs.  The very nice, if richly tattooed young man, looked it over, listened to it, then admitted sotto voice that he’s now driving a Ford.  So there ya go.
