In My Garden is a Purple Palm Acrylic on Paper 8" x 10" Unframed $325
I finished another palm painting that I had started a couple weeks ago. I like the purple color I used with the yellow and oranges. Meanwhile I'm also working on my lyrical world paintings but I'm finding they are not coming as easy as I thought they would. I think I'll do some sketches tomorrow and loosen up my imagination with some rough designs. I haven't painted the lyrical worlds in quite some time and I think I need to ease into them. I have finished another bird painting as well which I'll post later. Stay tuned.
A Studio Sale is a great time to find amazing bargains on art that the artist may feel is no longer representative of their style or has outlived it's "showability". The front part of the gallery will be arranged with bins and both framed and unframed art, so you can come and find treasures. Plus, it will be happening for an entire week...so, put it on your calendar now to stop by.
I will have 8 pieces in the STUDIO SALE! See them below.

I'm enjoying painting in the studio under the palapa. It gets sorta windy up there though and I've had to put up some tapestry blankets on one side to cut the wind. It works pretty good. Today I'm working on more bird paintings (raven) and lyrical worlds. I'll post some images of these new paintings soon.
"She Heard the Desert Calling" Approx. image size 6.75" x 6" Acrylic on Paper, Unframed $195
Today I found myself really contemplating what I want to spend my time painting. And I decided the two things I love to paint the most are my small bird paintings, my Native American themed paintings and my Lyrical World series. I finished a small desert bird painting today that I really love (see above image). I've been exploring the tropical theme recently and have enjoyed that. But what I enjoy doing the most, creating colorful worlds from my imagination, wasn't being tapped into as much with the Tropical theme. So I've decided in essence to get back to my roots. The Lyrical World Series is one I developed when I lived in New York City and where I fine tuned my current style of painting. These colorful worlds are my favorite so that is what I'm going to start painting again as well as more small bird paintings. I will be doing various sizes of the Lyrical World series and you can see a sample of a small one below.
I'm also going to be raising my prices in 2009 and you will see this reflected on my web site soon. I will be revising and fine tuning my web site in the next few months and adjusting prices. Meanwhile I am involved in a big STUDIO SALE next week at the Tumalo Art Co. gallery in Bend. I'll have about 8 paintings there at drastically reduced prices. I'll be posting them on my blog with their sale prices on Monday. Have a great weekend!

I'm still working on this palm tree painting but I thought I'd show how it's going so far. I had my studio all set up with the paints out, the paper ready, water in a container, my spray bottle at hand, my apron on, the brushes out and then...blank...what to paint? Pressure was on. I had made some sketches but they didn't strike me as what I wanted to paint at that moment. Then I looked out at my view and saw palm trees so that is what I started to paint....my version of palm trees that is. I also am still in "dragonfly mode" from my Costa Rica trip so I have that subject as well to paint. I'm having fun exploring these tropical themes in such a beautiful environment!
