Momentum


This is my most recent cold wax painting that I finished moments ago. I like the depth of field I see in it; that some parts are in focus and some not. I like the colors too. It isn't really getting any easier so a success here and there is a good thing.


This is the mess I still haven't cleaned up in the studio. I worked mostly with powdered pigment in this one.


And halleluia, we finally got up to 70 degrees here. It won't last but we are thrilled for the sunshine; lawnmowers buzzing in the distance.


I ran around the yard and took random pictures for you.



I have been a lousy reporter.



And I have lots of weeds in my garden as well as a few old favorites.


John's pruning grapes today.


The studio door is open.


We have 2 cherry trees now and cherries on the menu for July desserts.


This photo is for William, the Bleeding Hearts you gave me for my Birthday last year are alive and well; that's saying a lot for this lazy gardener. Yes, I see that dandelion in the background - I'm going out now to disappear it. And clean up the studio. xo

I love the painting too and thanks for the "friending" on fb.
I'm on a ferry heading north to revisit the arrival of spring so your photos helped withthe grey and the rain in Southeast Alaska.

I really like this series you have been posting. Its good to hear that someone I admire (you) struggles with successes too. Thanks for letting us know. Yep, this warm weather is a lovely change of pace from the rain.

My best to you!

That is my favorite wax-work to date! wonderful! love the color and the circles! the flowers are grand too despite the dandelion! "steph" tells us the dandelions are the first flower for the honey bees in the spring and that we shouldn't be in such a hurry to root them out! any excuse will do!

Love this painting, I'll say it's a success wonderfully rich. As is your growing garden, so beautiful.

Beautiful painting (and flowers:). The cold wax is very difficult as I've been playing a bit too. So I really admire the depth you have achieved. And I see those Sinopia pigments in the background of your photo, swoon. I so wish we lived closer :( so we could play together.

Love this painting--the three "rings" lend a sense of mystery. So nice to see what's going on in your garden. Here in Wisconsin it still remains very cold.
