Another day

Another day at the studio with my sister. She continued to work on her basket and get it to a portable stage to take home.

I finished my 6"x6" oil pastel of the garlic. We had a nice 2 days together depite the rain...

Sister time

My sister and her husband stopped by for a few days visit. They were on their way back to Vermont after spending a few weeks on Martha's Vineyard. They arrived on Sunday and left today and it rained the whole time. My sister makes beautiful basksets and she had her materials with her, so on Monday we spent the day at my studio so we could both do work. She started a new basket.

And I worked on my 6x6 garlic.

Another 6x6 WIP

Just so you all know that I am doing some is another 6x6 started. I won't be back to the studio for 10 days as I have a ton of company coming during that time, sister and husband, daughter, husband and grandchildren. It will be nice seeing them all though and then a big bash on Easter. I also have an opening on Sunday of work by 4th floor artists.
This is an oil pastel on gessoed board primed with colorfix.

Back to the studio

Well I finally went back to my studio today after being away for a week. I was laid up with bronchitis, plus it RAINED for 3 days, leaving 8 inches. Today dawned beautiful and sunny and warm. I continued to work on another 6x6 oil pastel and thought it was finished but realized it needed something else. I sketched in a little piece of glass to help balance the composition. Too wet to put it in today so wil finish it when I go back. Also started another one. Here are the rocks so far.

I haven't been to the studio for a few days, trying to recuperate from bronchitis and sinus...yuck!
I just had to post a few of our visitors yesterday. They liked the bird seed and then wandered on. Even crossed Rte. 123 and made the traffic stop for them..
They are such big birds.

6x6 oil pastel done

Here is an update to the white vase w/flowers. I think it needs a little more tweaking which I will probably do next week. Not much just a little. I even started another today, but the photo is blury. More for next week.
Some of us hung the 4th floor artists show at the Crane Library in Quincy, MA on Monday. 32 of 58 artists participated. Looks great.
