So, last week I was on the mend and so looking forward to getting back into the swing of things in my studio….then both kids came down with strep! Poor things. I hate seeing them feeling so sick. And my studio was abandoned for another week. I was able to get in on Friday and a little bit this weekend. Hoping this is the end of sickness in my house!
I almost forgot, I got up before the sun rose Monday morning, before I knew my kids had strep, to get 2 hours in. There is something powerful about the early morning creative energy. I am not a morning person, but I think I may just become one. 5 am- 7 am painting. The above photo is a detail of a painting I worked on that early morning.

I’ve been going through my photo files and sorting through all the photos that I have been meaning to use for paintings. It’s nice to go back through my images and remember the moment when I was taking the shot. I’m looking forward to seeing where I take the images next with my paintings.
