studio!

back in the studio! this week it was me- (yes, it's cold, but i am stubbornly clinging to flip flops)


pam


sue


and nancy

we haven't all been together for a while- pam was in san fran, nancy on a tour of national parks (yellowstone & southern utah), sue was sick last week.

pam was working on a travel journal that she keeps to remember her many adventures. those are not both her glasses of wine :)


nancy was making paper mache creatures to put on a frame around one of her paintings- 


i was working on backgrounds (we were all working on that bottle of wine)


i have a couple of red backgrounds to start laying texture on- the bottom i think will be a dancing sandhill crane painting, not sure abt the top-


great to be back in the woman cave and laugh and create and feel the love. i am so lucky to know such a great bunch of women. it's a friendly, safe, supportive environment. we can say what we think without feeling judged, we can try new things and it's ok if they are less than lovely because we learn.

also so nice to have a break from having to have a certain amount of art done. it's a good thing to be in the gallery and to be a working artist and to have a reason to create. it's also a good thing to be able to sit back & recharge, to have time to play & let things gestate and see where it goes. there's usually room for both, but right now a break is needed.

stay tuned to see what happens next! happy june-

Can you believe it's already June? Too dry here (and I don't mean wine!) Enjoy your friends and your art.

You know what - it LOOKS like a friendly, safe, supportive environment too! You're all very lucky to have found each other and to have your Tuesday evenings to look forward to!
