The Continental Club
9 x 12 oil on museum board
Enjoyed some music recently with friends at the
Continental Club in downtown Austin
where we got to hear Redd Volkaert.
Redd used to play with Merle Haggart back in the day.
I've got your chair waiting for you so we can relax
and catch up again:)
Yes, it's been more work than expected, yes we made a huge mess,
and yes I am happy that the make over is finally over.
We went from this to this to this in what seemed like forever but
Big, Big sigh of relief:)))))
We'll be able to see more of each other again!
Thanks for viewing my paintings and following along:)

Thank you to AIS Pres- Debra Joy Groesser,
the AIS V.P.- Cheryl St. John.
and especially the show chair Becky Joy
for hosting a fantastic show.
They had arranged a demo by Clayton Beck,
workshops, paint outs, museum tours,
presentations on materials and marketing
and a great opening.
There were so many wonderful paintings there
that I couldn't even pick a favorite to vote for in the
peoples choice award.
I met so many
I met so many
artists and hopefully made some new friends along the way.
My experience couldn't have been any better.
Plus red dots are always exciting!

Old Friends 6x6 oil on museum board
I just loved the gesture of this old woman walking and
her dedication to come and feed the birds
They seemed like old friends and
really kept each other going.
That's what friends do:)
I do love the juicy paint in this one and would like
to try it larger and see if I can keep
the same paint quality.
I'll keep you posted.
Thanks so much for following along and
letting me share my art/life with you.

Time to ship Porch Swing off to Abend gallery
for the AIS show.
You can click here to see a list of the exhibiting artists or
visit the American Impressionist Society website.
While in Europe I didn't have access to these great shipping boxes.
Shipping overseas made them super expensive so I
always made my own.
One of the many reasons I love being back in the states!
I chose the Airfloat Strong Box.
It was really easy to pack and cut out the center foam panel
to give the painting a soft comfy place to snuggle in
for the ride.
Friends tell me these boxes really hold up well and if you have
any comments about this, I'd love to hear them.
Thank you for following along and viewing my paintings.
