Time to start over . . .

On the Way to the House of a Friend

Yes, I admit it. 
I didn't quite make the 30 Oil Paintings in 30 Days. 
Life just gets in the way of plans sometimes.
But with the last of my Big Push things now out of the way,
I'm ready to get back to the easel and paint.
Maybe not 30 in 30 but as close as I can come.

Love the way this painting turned out, I'm happy to say!
Taken from a photo when I was on my way back from Brainerd, Minnesota, last week.
I finally got to meet my long-distance friend Lisa Jordan at the Crossing Arts Alliance in Brainerd where she is the Executive/Artistic Director.
I taught a workshop in torchfired enamel, 13 fun, artsy women, and we had an absolute ball all weekend. Can't wait to do it again. Soon.

The Crossing Arts Alliance is hosting a fundraiser the weekend of 10 October
and asking their artists to take an 8x8 canvas and produce
a piece of art in their own styles to donate for purchase.
All works will be $50 and all monies will go to the CAA.
Great idea and I love challenges like this. 

Details : 8"x8"
Oil on canvas

Post Script : The Process
I love this 'feeling it out' part.

Jill, it was the best. After nine years of emails came this chance to teach a workshop there and I could NOT pass it up! I think we really connected and we had a wonderful weekend. I got to see a part of the world I'd never visited and cannot wait to do it again. Such a talented artist and her friends and friends' galleries and shops, beautiful.

I loved having you here! What a glorious weekend, it made my world feel just a little more complete. Can't wait to have you back! xo
