Palm Tree Painting Day Two

Palm Tree Painting Day Two

June 12, 2022 — Palm Tree painting, day two… so exciting. I tweaked yesterday’s work, which shockingly took me about 3 hours but this set the foundation I was looking for. And from there I cranked on the lowest part of the sky. I left thoroughly exhausted but I got the entire lower and most complex part of the sky finished. A good thing because I drive to Sac & Chico tomorrow for image capture and Muff, and it won’t be workable in the same way when I return on Tues. 

Palm tree painting day two aside, I will be loading the car in the morning and heading to image capture with Pele and Island Plumeria, along with taking for re-shooting, Monterey Gems and Stained Glass Afternoon, which for some reason, Andrew (God rest his beautiful soul), delivered me a super tiny TIF which I hadn’t noticed till recently. So tiny that I can barely reproduce it at size, much less bigger than. Not excited about the bill to reshoot them, but glad for the opportunity while I still own the originals. 


I’ve been invited to post my artwork in the beta version of Kaleido, a site for impressionistic artists, that takes no commissions. Not sure what the catch is, but I put up the first two pieces of art, which was all I needed to go live.

Dare to talk Politics?

…in our venomously divided country? (wow, there something wrong with even having to ask THAT question!) To answer, let’s just say I hope everyone is watching the Jan 6 committee hearings. I never dreamed something this perilous to our democracy would be happening, and that so many citizens would be in denial. Goes to show that vulnerability and stability of a country is psychological as much as anything. 

Art Giveaway! As usual, a warm invite to sign up. See below for Aspen Sky, the giveaway.
