HAPPY 2011 !!!!!!!!!!
A ladder is a nice icon for progress I think. Well, this is my ladder. And this is my progress, as of a two weeks ago, on a large commission for a residence in Louisiana.
Now that I think about it, my second post ever on this blog was twelve months ago. It was me on a ladder in my Louisiana studio working on a commissioned painting this exact size for a Florida residence via Ann Connelly Fine Art. And it was mid-January. And I remember being in a bad mood about it being too cold and wishing I were on a warm, sunny beach somewhere drinking a margarita on the rocks, no salt. Hmm. Well, I'll be damned if I am not going to Florida next week. And I'll be damned if I am not going order that margarita. And I'll be damned if the title of this painting isn't Water's Edge. And no, I did not plan this cute little moment of serendipity, but I like it!
And the last painting of 2010 finished! It will be hanging at Ann Connelly Fine Art until the installation at the end of this month.
Water's Edge: 96" x 96" ink, acrylic, oil, charcoal, and oil crayon on canvas
Now get your margaritas ready...
Here's to a bright, shiny new year filled with progress, possibility, and lots of love for all...CHEERS!!!
