Feels Like Summer

The Light Seekers

16"x8"

These last few days have been absolutely gorgeous weather wise which feels like such a change from the erratic temperatures and rain we've experienced through most of April and into May.

John had the girls out on Monday working in the garden and you can only imagine the looks on their faces. You would think I'd asked them to pump out the septic system. To their credit I will say they put in a solid two hours with their hoodies pulled up over their faces as the black flies were relentless. We planted some lettuce, snow peas, cucumbers and were still eating the asparagus.


I've been pretty steady in the studio, the clean studio I might add. I feel really creative right now and am trying to get as much done as possible before I hit a wall.........it always happens at some point. I've also been researching a few new galleries so I need to get my butt in gear to make that happen.


I'm also on Twitter which makes no sense whatsoever but so be it. Facebook has rather fizzled out for me and I find myself checking in maybe once a week to see what others are up to. Twitter is kind of fun as I can follow some of my favourites artists as well as my guy Jian who happens to Tweet quite frequently. I follow Kevin Nealon who was an alumni of Saturday Night Live and now is on Weeds.........he never fails to crack me up. I imagine it's kind of like stalking but with participants who are willing. Anyway, just some other mindless activity to keep me amused.


Hope your having a great day wherever you are in the world.

My resolve is weakening. I may have to Twitter soon...

Meanwhile, I love what you said about your daughters and yardwork. I just came from a blog where the author is always talking about her wonderful children and over there HERS actually volunteered to mow the lawn after winning a million awards today. I feel like such an inadequate parent after leaving there! :)

PS Lovely painting: dynamic colours and I love the long format.

Thanks Andrea. If nothing else I promised myself this blog would always be an honest account of my life and work. My kids are teenagers they roll their eyes at everything and think I'm weird. Teenagers are teenagers.....love them like crazy but their sure not perfect. Let me know who this other woman is as I want to check out her blog and read all about her wonderful children.

I love dramatic skies and I think your long canvas looks great.
You sound like your describing my daughter!

There is certainly a commonality between all teenagers. Good luck with your exhibition. Sounds wonderful!
