Here are my paintings on the newly stretched but as yet unpainted canvases - I am curious to see the work on colors. I have a beautiful turquoise and a powerful red - but may use a neutral color and finish the edges with a bright frame.
Saturday I stretched about 15 canvases - put a blister on my hand! I have about 8 more stretchers to go. I am deciding now what color(s) to paint them as backgrounds to my artwork.

These scarves are still wet, having been rinsed and readied for machine-rinsing and washing in HOT water to set the dye.

"Change in the Weather' (detail)
Last week at this time I was enjoying a bit of a break on a warmer island, Oahu. The water was an incredible changing palette of aqua, turquoise and every shade of blue imaginable. HUGE surf pounding on the North Shore - the morning of the Tsunami warning I found myself sitting on our hotel balcony for almost two hours, doing absolutely nothing and feeling no guilt about that! Home again, I realize I live in Paradise North, and am back into my studio routine truly refreshed and working well.
