Working away with Robert Plant and Alison Krauss singing in the background, me singing in the foreground. That is a terrifying reality, ask my family. It is so good to be back in the studio. Continuing in the same style as the “Beach Lady” with this new piece, “Thank you, Mom and Dad”. It is small, 8″x10″. The fine white lines are going to ruin the remaining vision I have. It is hard to be inside with the magnificent weather we are having. A weekend in the garden was what I really needed to feel rejuvenated. I received a commission yesterday for a large pet fantasy portrait of two poodles. It will be in the same style as this painting, “Harold’s Fantasy.” A Christmas gift! Uh oh! The countdown has officially begun for making gifts. 53 days until Hanukkah and 67 until Christmas. Thank you Alyson for the countdown.
