New ideas perking!

Today I came back to the studio with a giant armload of "fab fifties frocks" borrowed from a theater costume shop storeroom. They are a lovely pile of silk, taffeta, tulle. Cant wait to play.

Here's another small 8 x 8 painting of the cabbage rose summer dress I saw in a neighborhood boutique. It's a current favorite. So much fun to paint!

Tea Rose 6x6. available at DailyPaintworks.com

I create small pieces as a part of my process... the "Orphan Art" and am posting them on Daily Paintworks. In the past I have only sold them in my studio but...they are like rabbits and seem to be multiplying in the studio when I am not looking! Please visit and spread the word. Many thanks

A new outlet for "orphan art"

My painting habits result in more and more small sketches and studies that seem to gather and reproduce like rabbits in my studio. They need good homes...thus "orphan art"
