Sometimes circumstances get in the way.  On my way to an important meeting last October, I fell, beaking my femur.  Ambulatory again, I appreciate those of you who checked me out in the interim.  Starting this month I plan to take up my painting and hope you will continue to view my work.

A Little different Life!

I broke my femur last fall and things have changed for me.  Little did I realize how much change was in store at the time.  From October until April I have been on the mend.  Although my leg is much better I have some complications that have forced me to slow down considerably.  We sold our gallery and I am working out of my home.  Creating a studio was a challenge.  I finally decided to take my spare 2 bedrooms and use one for oils and one for watercolor and other media.  I have a nice space upstairs , but getting up there created an extra effort that didn't seem worth it so any guests will have to make that trek.
      Enough about that!  It's back to work now.

Visit with amazing watercolorist Mark Stewart

Mark brought some of his beautiful painting into Morton Street Gallery yesterday.  His work is always amazing.  He had just returned from his Gallery in Marble Falls where he had collectors waiting to buy.  They took him to their place in Spicewood.  It is always so exciting to meet with your collectors and exchange thoughts on art.   He and I got to talking about galleries and artists.  It has been a tough time for galleries, but there are people out there still eager to find good art.  I have been working on several 4'x5' pieces recently.  We got to talking about Chuck Close.  (Kenneth Pierson had a drawing of him sitting in front of his work)  As most of you know after a terrible accident he now uses a hydraulic lift to help him create his immense works.  There is a video about it I understand.  Anyway, that sounds like a great idea.  At the moment my budget doesn't allow such luxury, but I'll keep it in mind.  Mark is also one of the nicest people I know.  If you're not familiar with his work, google him.  "Mark Stewart Watercolors".  He is also an architect and has a website, so be sure to mention "watercolors"

I decided to set some challenges for myself.  I'm not completely happy with the results, but it's a beginning.  One is some beads in a cellophane bag, and the other is a hydrangea in a clear glass vase with colored marbles in the water against a blue green background. 
I'm curious if some of you who see this are more successful.  I would love to see some similar work that you might have done.  At least, I would love some comments on what I could do better.
