You know how sometimes you travel to a place for the first time and you pick a hotel for no apparent reason? well, that's what we did when we went to Petaluma, California last year. Lucky us! this was one of the views from our hotel room. It was very early in the morning and not much stirring. That view and a cup of good coffee. Didn't need much more.
I've had this idea hanging around, bugging me for quite some time. I want to do an entire series of either figures or portraits all sharing the same background. Since I was already playing with female figures/birds this didn't seem like to major a jump. The drape of the fabric cascaded like water so it somehow made since to combine the two.
I'm a painter living in Enumclaw, Washington. It's a small town in the foothills below Mt. Rainier. My sculptor husband and I share 3 studios, a foundry,6 cats, a one-of-a-kind, custom, cast bronze door and cabinet hardware company and 5 beautiful acres of land on which we host a July outdoor sculpture show. "A Painting a Day" seemed a little over the top. Just up my alley. Don't look for any consistency in subject matter. The one sure thing? color!
Paintings can be purchased on Ebay of directly from our studio.
