Work in progress: "Waiting"

This will be a last minute addition to the portrait section of my work in next week's group show. I'm still working on it, and I'm sure the matting and framing process will bring it right down to the wire!

Today, I will be picking up my giclee prints. I chose "Water Plus Sunshine", "Pizzelle On a Pedestal", "Lilac and Primaries", and "Brussels Sprouts and Delft" for the prints. Also on my list today is proofing images for note cards that will be printed this week. "Espresso and Lace" and "Winterberries" are among the chosen pieces for the cards.

Winter Is Coming

When I see these winterberries on their leafless branches by the side of the road, I know that winter is just around the corner. They inspired me to put together this still life with a holiday feel, along with some trimmings from a fir tree, a gracefully shaped old pitcher, and a bright red tablecloth. The backlit white curtains add a snowy touch.

I've chosen to have some note cards printed of this piece, and a few others, to add to the offerings at the upcoming show. There will also be giclee prints of "Water Plus Sunshine", "Pizzelle On A Pedestal", "Lilac and Primaries", and "Brussels Sprouts and Delft". I'm looking forward to a very busy and exciting weekend of the 20th through the 22nd!
