Breakfast Table

6 x 6 Oil on gessoed masonite

I have been really busy, and feel guilty about neglecting my painting. Does thinking about it count? Maybe a little, eventually I am just going to set myself back. Sometimes I feel defeated to keep up with my daily responsibilities, and try to paint. I think part of it is organization. I am definitely in need of organizing and prioritizing. All big words. I better get to work and find a solution, after I go to bed and sleep on it.

Table Setting

8 x 10 Oil on gessoed masonite
It is rainy, cold and dreary in New England. I feel we are losing out on the spring here. We are supposed to be out enjoying this time of year, gardening, walking and enjoying the new flowers. Instead, we are holed up, and I am getting impatient! My son is leaving to go sailing off the coast of Mexico into the warm and sunny South Pacific. My imagination is with him in the bright sunshine and surrounded by aqua waters with warm tropical breezes......

A study of more of these coneflowers. I am enjoying trying some different angles with these. I would like to try more making them more abstract.

Well, our gardens don't look like this yet, but give us a little while here in Maine and we will be in full swing. I hope! You never know with New England, especially northern NE!
