It's my birthday so I can do what I want to- isn't that
a song?  If not it should be.  I'm back from a great time
stateside in Austin, Texas visiting with friend and family just
in time to who I'm giving what to on my special day.

The winner of this fine art print- Blooming Color -is
Edward Mills!
Send me your mailing address Ed and I'll ship it out to you
framed and ready to hang in your home. 

This was so much fun I think I'll do it again soon.

Pot Check

Pot Check 6 x 6 oil on board
I really enjoy doing these small still life paintings with
 patterns.  I found a checked tea towel in my
drawer, loved the colors and thought- why not?
The checks are just as fun as the stripes but a
little bit more complicated to paint.
The trick is to try to separate the darks and
lights without worrying too much about
'what' it is.

Fresh Tomatoes

Fresh Tomatoes  28" x 24" oil on canvas
Small paintings are fun to work on but so are larger pieces.
Sometimes I feel like I need more s p a c e .
This little old man eyeing the tomato carton caught
my attention in this Italian Market.
I'm drawn to the people that have the most
expat twist:
I was going to post this yesterday but we had our
first rain here since spring.  It always brings alot of
dangerous flooding, lightening and of course
electrical black outs.
Hence no Internet to post.

Musical Ipad

Musical Ipad 6 x 9 digital
This is another piece from Friday evening while
listening to jazz under a beautiful full moon.
I'd play around with it a bit and then pass
it to my friend Jeni Caurana and she
would work on it for a few minutes.
Our own version of
Musical Ipad.

Blue Moon Music

Blue Moon Music  6" x 9" Ipad
You're surprised right? Since this blog is about my creative
process I thought I'd share this.
Last night was a blue moon which is rare and I went
with some of my friends to the Bridge Bar in Malta to
listen to jazz.  It couldn't have been a more
beautiful night.
I'm glad I brought along my Ipad and we
had lots of fun playing with it.
