rest, relaxation, yoga and family

pushpa and kari
i just got back from a trip to jacksonville, fl to visit my soul sister (aunt), pushpa...  we first met when i was about two or three years old and she was about six or seven and we've giggled and stayed in touch ever since then... kari and pushpa (st augustine, fl)
she's the person that i call when everything is going wrong and when everything is going right...  during my trip i had amazing home cooked indian meals, we did yoga, we walked on the beach and talked and talked and talked... we took road trips and went to a psychic!  its so nice to get away from my life every once in a while and just live a different life for a while...  another bonus was that i got to get to know my cousin, kaliyani and my uncle glenn better...  i felt very spoiled while i was there. thursday's artwalk, neptune beach, fl

working the cute out...

I often find that before I can get to the more serious work I want to produce I have to make some cuter paintings to get me warmed up and away from intimidation...  So, here are a few paintings I produced in the last couple of days.
I will be in Jacksonville, FL for about a week to visit family, rest, start exercising again and I've also been invited to participate in the local artwalk there.  I think I should be able to write off part of this trip now!  Yeah!!
Anyway, enjoy your week and I'll send photos of my artwalk adventures, I can't wait!

july in the studio

starting to paint again in my studio after a couple of weeks of having a VERY bad cold!  i didn't sleep at all last night because i've been so scared to start painting again.  i'm not sure why i do this to myself but i try to accept it as a part of my creative process and bring it along with me.  i began painting this morning.
i've been working on 5"x5" boards, 8"x8" and a few other combinations of sizes and i am painting sheep.  right now they are backgrounds and some type mixed in but the sheep will be making their appearances very shortly...   i will take more photos so you can see...  for now here are a few photos in and around my studio to show you how things look now in my beginning stages. background images for sheepies text for paintings palette with acrylic paints
