I have the honor of showing this month at the Porterville College Art Gallery. I will be posting new images within the week, but wanted to invite friends to see what I have been up to this year! It has been an incredible opportunity given by a friend and fellow Three Rivers’s artist, Jim Entz, who is an art professor at the College. I am very grateful! Please note dates and times so you will be sure to get there when the gallery is open!


It has been awhile since my last entry, but I am working on a new painting for the upcoming studio tour 9. [March 19, 20 & 21!] I’m very happy with it and to be painting everyday! This is a detail of the first piece, which will have a companion piece [twins!] that have shown up at the same time. These are larger pieces [36″ x 48″] than what I usually work on and with a no.2 brush, it is slow going —but I am a happy girl!


For several reasons, it is bittersweet for me when I finish a painting. First one
being that I paint rather slowly, so I really get to be with the images for a while and when I am finished, the energy shifts. But in the meantime, I have gotten used to it being in my heart and head and when the conversation has fallen silent, I begin to let go…like parting from a dear friend. Sometimes it is easy, sometimes it isn’t.

This is the first one I have finished that I don’t have a title for. Usually the title shows up first or at the same time as the image…or certainly within the first few days of working on it. And it was that way with this one until half way through. I started to see it drift away, like watching clouds as they come together and make a lizard or a rearing horse and then disappear back into the blue. So while I thought
I had a title, I don’t. For right now, I figure I would just let it be and one will land soon. I am just happy with the final image.
