Open Studios Napa Valley happened in September. It is always a step outside of the creation mode that normally happens in my space to openness, sharing and lots of art talk. Thank you to everyone that ventured out and supported the local artists of the Napa Valley. Untill next year!
It's September and Open Studios in the Napa Valley.
My studio is overflowing with new works. Fun collages on wood blocks started the wave of creation. I was transformed by listening to the vibrations of Marconi Union. These vibrations lead to a new dreamscape painting series. Waves of teal and blues dotted with botanical plants. All these new works need wires and titles - so the fun continues.
Today is a good day to create! September is a great time to enjoy Napa Valley - Art and Harvest!
Wow, what a year! A year of painting, hiking, and being alone. A year of many, many phone conversations, zoom craziness, and lonely holidays. I find solace in my painting, but even these images have different feel.
I have received the vaccine, and the fog of this past year is lifting, I am looking forward to in- person dinners and hugging. Boy, do I miss hugging! There is sunshine, hope, vacations on the calendar, and I am starting to reach for the magenta paint. Oh my!
