Always buy flowers!

I treated myself to these beautiful gladiolus and look forward to turning this beginning into a painting.

Two beginnings.......I poured indigo, fr. ultramarine, burnt and raw sienna.  Then I sprayed with webbing.  Stay tuned, I don't know where they are headed.

This one was finished just in time to hang it in my exhibit at Glen Vista Gallery, Kalamazoo Nature Center.  I am the solo artist and the show runs through September.  I am honored and thrilled and can't believe it.  Seems surreal to walk into a gallery and see my paintings.

What can I say, I have been consumed with planning a road trip that has been the dream stage for over ten years.  And, in the midst of that was offered the opportunity to have a two month exhibit of my paintings-most of which were not framed.  I have framed about 2 dozen so far and have kept them all a simple white mat with brushed gold frame to give the show a very cohesive feeling.  Pictures of that in the future.  For now, look for hubby and me in our aqua Thunderbird on Rte. 66 the whole month of June.  And if that seems interesting to you, please check our blog www.66sunsets.blogspot.com that chronicles our adventure beginning June 2.
