I’m Back….

Even though I was never really away, away, I have spent the last 6-9 months readying our house for sale. De-personalizing, de-cluttering, painting, cleaning and throwing away old treasures, which on closer examination really weren’t treasures, has monopolizing my time. Now, the house has been listed for sale and I will wait out the rest of the adventure in my studio painting and staying out of my now perfectly clean and staged house.

"My Bad"
"My Bad", 11" x 14", oil on canvas

But in spite of trying to completely focus on my house, there was another opportunity which came to me, one I could never pass up. It’s a silent art auction with 100% of the funds going to animal shelter and rescue groups. I just finished my piece for the auction, which will be held Satuday, May 14th, from 7-9 at the Monadnock Humane Society, Swanzey, N.H. I must say though that “Tigger” never chewed up any shoes.  Tigger, my dog, in the painting, was a rescue dog. He was found as a puppy in a dumpster in Puerto Rico. I’ve had him about 2 years now and he’s a delight. Funds for the sale of this painting will go to SATO, Second Chance SATO Rescue.

Additionally I managed to involve myself in a group show of plein air artists.
