New Paintings, Computer Gremlins and Spring!

Just as I was about to post a new painting last night, my computer jammed up! Yesterday was a full day, still getting organized in my new studio space, building inventory for the upcoming shows and working on commissions. I'm working on this absolutely giant piece 100 x 130 cm or for those of you (like me) who have trouble with metric, 40 x 50 inches. Once finished, it's bound for Australia.

Yesterday I built up the texture work for the cross using a flexible molding medium. This one is going to be rolled into a tube for shipping so I wanted to make sure it would have interesting texture and not crack.

I finished the painting below over the weekend so thought I'd better post it before I forget.

Wow - really love your paintings. I love the bright colours.

I found your blog this evening while enjoying different art sites. You do some really lovely work and I envy your talent - I'm a writer myself, also from the Ottawa area!

I was wondering if you would be interested in taking part in our Paint Something "Good" Contest over at the Legends of Mernac for a chance to win $500. This contest is centered around a different theme word each month for the next year, with a winner every month. May's theme word is Fantasy.

I hope you'll enter! Great work!

I met you briefly in The Beach over the weekend and promised to check your website. I have spent the last 45 minutes browsing through your work and I am in love! I am a Frida aficionado too and I think she would appreciate your paintings. They are wonderful.
