I have a little rose garden blooming in my studio, all Edens. I’m glad I managed to take a little snap as several have sold already! Also seen here is one of the many fabulous demitasses that my friend (and children’s former pre-school teacher) had given me as well as the painting it inspired by it (that I will be giving to her as a thank you gift for the treasure trove). The canary, from Montebello Road in Campbell, is a future model for one of my Birds and Teacup paintings. More details about the paintings are listed in my Portfolio under the Flora subheading.

After four years of drought, it looks like were finally going to get a decent El Niño! This was the second day of heavy rain and I delighted in keeping my studio windows open to hear all of that rolling thunder!
I love how cozy and inviting the studio is in the midst of all that rain!
It always amazes me how the rain makes everything look different!
The beginning of a new week…. and although I made some major headway in working out the image I’m going to be doing for a commission, I was not able to start work on it as my client and I still need to decide on the appropriate scale. I couldn’t let the day pass without using my paintbrush so I painted this little 4×4″ oil of a Western Bluebird which is destined for the painting tree at the Los Gatos Museums Gallery. I wonder if I can whip up some more tomorrow – or should I do teacups? Hope they’ll dry in time for the exchange this weekend!
