Life and Breath

I worked on this today with the intention of putting it in the new WC. Today was my first day of going off to Anderson Street to paint. I came home for lunch so it was a short day.

This little fellow went to an auction to raise money for leukemia and lymphoma.

More Pieces of California

These pieces were made using plants I picked up on my travels in California. The Eucalyptus leaves are the thing that, even though not a native tree, really screams California.

A bit of California

I've had these hanging on my wall for a while and lately they've been getting a lot of attention so I decided to show them off. Stay tuned for the other two in the series.

More Calla Lilies

My friend Justin wrote that Calla Lilies are prolific in his yard in Southern California too. I wonder how far north these beauties grow?

Ox Sketch

I was organizing my studio drawers, as is my habit of late, when I stumbled upon a Chinese block painting of a man standing behind his ox. Not sure how this will translate in a larger painting but it sure is fun small scale.

Golden Beets

I sneaked in a little painting between cleaning and packing the last bits of stuff. I found this piece of redwood in the basement, sawed it in half, and have another surface for tomorrow. Oh, have I said that I LOVE beets?

Year of the Dragon

I don't have DSL in my new place yet so it may continue to be slow for another week or two. The movers come on Friday, Yippee!

The background of this picture is very similar to the color we are painting over. I didn't realize it until just this moment. Good for the bananas, bad for the walls.

My daily painting has taken a turn...

House Painting! My pal removing the tape from the kitchen walls.

Colorful San Francisco

Tomorrow is my first official day in my new house! I'm so excited. I don't even care that my house is in shambles and I'm living out of boxes.

Red and White Onion

I needed an onion today for my tomato and feta cheese salad, and felt a little funny grabbing one from the light box. I don't think that's what the term 'edible art'refers to.

Cala Lilies

I noticed the cala lillies in full bloom in my garden this week. They grow wild here in Northern California. Some people think of them as weeds, I can't imagine.

Happy Capp

I've noticed my work getting more and more cheerful, I guess I'm just happy.

The first little baskets appeared a couple of weeks ago. Now they're everywhere. I never tire of the seasonal wonders of California.

Onions 6" x 6"

Looking around for a reference on how to know which onion to when cooking, I came across the National Onion Association. I didn't find what I was looking for, but I'm guessing there's an association for just about everything.
