art for everyone

Here is my friend, Tim, holding his little bird sketch he got at my first art show. Tim is a wonderful cook and an interesting man. He wanted another bird I painted but someone else got that first, while he was serving the marvelous food he prepared for my party. Thanks, Tim!

I had been working on the painting at night while she slept. Recently I've taken to working over a couple of paintings I thought were finished.

Here are a couple of photos of pieces I've recently worked on:

Art Old and New

I have old art, stacked up, some in frames, some I did 30 years ago...time to let some go to make room for new pieces.

I let go of many skeins of yarn lately, also. Out with the old! Make room for the new!
