Well, I think I finally finished the morning glories. I took them out again this week and decided I needed to finish up some of these unfinished paintings. This is oil pastel on 9" x 20" on hardboard.

A friend of mine called a few weeks ago and wanted to know if we could use a flat file....wow, something that I always wanted. It had belonged to an artist who had moved away and couldn't use it. 10 drawers, all wood and in decent shape. YES, YES, YES. I wasn't sure where we would put it, but there had to be space. We found a place, a perfect spot actually and my husband made a top for it. All 3 of us will use it..Here it is! and it's on wheels..how great is that!

I have set up a very large still life which I plan to work on over the next few months, a little at a time. It will be somewhat like working on a jigsaw puzzle, in that I can put it aside and work on something else and then come back to it. I am going to do it in colored pencil, a drawing, which I love to just sit and do from time to time. Here is the still life and the beginning drawing. The flash kind of made the drawing colors funny, but it wouldn't take the picture without the flash, a dark day. It is on Stonehenge paper about 32" x 44", but may be a little smaller when I crop it. The backgound will be the quilt. I'll post progress from time to time.

I can't believe it has been so long since I posted. It has been a very busy month. I was preparing work for a new card shop in Plymouth opened by a good friend of mine. I have been making many giclee prints of my work, plus note cards and bookmarks. I then had to mat and bag all the prints.
In the meantime we took a small vacation to upper state NY. When I returned, I finished up and brought all the work to the store.
I then began to get work ready for a show with my 2 studio mates and another artist. The 4 of us have a show at the Science center in Norwell during Sept. and Oct. We hung it yesterday and it took us 3 hours!! Longer than we thought, but it is up and looks good.
Now I will be getting ready for my daughter and granddaughter's visit this weekend to move her back into college in Boston. Next week I'll be back at the studio.
