I have really been out of touch for the last few days and missed all the activity on WordPress. I have been prepping for a new show at Orchard Park Presbyterian Church In Carmel, Indiana. Yesterday afternoon we hung the show and the contact, Rachel, at the church was incredibly experienced and supportive.

Hanging at Orchard Park Church

They have two 13 foot hanging strips and my show includes 18 watercolor and 1 acrylic paintings, one ink drawing and one graphite drawing. Two small paintings are displayed on a lovely side table along with information about me and my guest book. The show is a mix of my older work and my recent paintings that are inspired by Ken’s battle with prostate cancer. The show will hang for two months. Ahhh, now I can sit back and relax for a day or two!

Yesterday was beautiful…I planted pansies and sat at my patio table to paint ATC’s. I decided to start with an ATC of the blossoms from my crabapple tree. They are in bloom for such a short time I thought I had better be quick or I would lose my chance. I may work on a slightly larger painting today. Maybe…

Then I decided to do another ATC of a toy belonging to my grandchildren. This one was really fun…thinking of my rowdy, all boy grandsons, I called it Bam Bam 1.

Bam Bam 1 - ATC

Both were painted on Strathmore Watercolor ATC paper with transparent watercolor and to the music of the birds in the background.
