A seasonal theme offered yearly...

Autumn Equinox - 16x16"
Indian Summer - 16x16"
Winter Solstice - 16x16"
Even after 29 years here in northern New Mexico, I find much enjoyment in the changing of the seasons, each bringing its own special  qualities, chores, and sometimes challenges.  I like to think my childhood experience of the climate of southeast Texas with  its alternating damp cold and humid heat makes me especially appreciative of our four seasonal shifts.  These paintings, each completed  in its turn over three months, compound my yearly pleasure in these particular months. I am pleased that new approaches gained through the works on paper of this summer, i.e. loose, more random application of bold color, and textural passages, have taken hold in my psyche and are very evident in all of them.  Having spent most of  October working on the wax of  Awakening, November getting ready for our duo exhibit at Back Street Bistro, and December finishing the clay of Expectation, with two breaks to visit with my adult children and young grandchildren (first Tucson, then Seattle), I was happy to return to painting and complete (among other pieces) the final piece of the trio, Winter Solstice. My website is newly updated, with Awakening on her proper sculpture page and new works up on the 2012 page. As an expression of my gratitude to my collectors, past, present and future, I recently created a Special Collectors Event.  For details, click the link, which takes you to a special page on my website and a special offer!
