These poppies encapsulates the intense sun beating down on us while on holidays in Mexico. It was fun to capture the heat and vividness of that summer week. There’s been a long pause including a few hiccups with torn ligaments and a computer that seized up on us after that snow storm we had in early September (what was with that?), a wonderful family wedding and my daughter’s 18th birthday.
I am now back on track with the third 4X4 workshop with Jean Pederson already behind me and the fourth and final one for the year coming up in December. I am once again committed to 30 paintings (gulp!) so I am holing up in my studio as I have barely begun.
I am excited however as I start this last phase of this extensive learning curve. It’s back to details as I focus on more complex representational images on prepared grounds. But more on that later!
