Stuff 'n things

Hope you're all doing well out there and not experiencing the arctic chill we're having here in Boulder. Yesterday it didn't get above 3 degrees! Ack!

I took this photo in my studio this morning. There's some collage material, new brushes, paint, etc. in usual disarray and a canvas in the upper right corner just waiting for attention. I tweaked the picture a little in Photoshop with the poster edge filter.

Last weekend we went to an art opening at a new gallery just north of here called Rabid Rabits Galeria. I especially enjoyed seeing the work of Colorado Artist, Anthony Grant. Anthony had a series of Hummingbird paintings that were so beautiful. The example below doesn't do them justice because in person, they almost glowed with color and energy. Check out Anthony's website when you get a chance.

I've been painting all week in the studio so hope to have a few things to show you soon. I like to photograph my finished pieces outside but it's been too dang cold to do that this week!

Happy Groundhog Day by the way!

Hi Linda, you are busy, busy, busy in that studio of yours. I know you are getting ready for a show, I hope you have a wonderful experience with it.

The weather has been so cold and snowy here as well, I'm waiting for spring, that is for sure. Hope you are doing well.

Hi Linda,
Hope you're staying warm.

Very nice painting by the artist. I always love spending time at art galleries and shows.

Hope your weather warms up a bit. It's cold here too.
