So no painting this week. Its funny how when I am not using my studio, how it becomes a catch all for things. We are almost done our renovations in the basement which includes my new studio space. My husband has been working so hard trying to get it done. Thats him and my son above in my new studio space painting baseboards. I am not sure when I will get back to painting to be honest there is a lot of transition happening here but it will happen. I ask for your patience in the meantime. Thanks :)

oil on canvas
This is the scene outside my front room window. I love the bright ash berries and the chains of green weeping birch leaves blowing in the breeze. I now will have a reminder of summer when the snow comes.

Oil on MDF board
Baby has arrived! Yesterday in the wee hours of the morning Corwyn Michael Powney was born. He is a very content baby which means hopefully I will be able to get back at the painting soon. I will be posting about once a week for a couple of months until we get used to our new normal.

Oil on Canvas
As promised in a couple of past posts, the larger painting I did for choice of a commission for a lady I know. She did end up taking this one as well. This vase she brought over was so inspiring. The shape, the colors. and the way it magnified the contents when filled with water was so much fun! The flowers were challenging to paint. Poppies move about quite quickly when in a cut arraignment and the little blue flowers are flax, that truthfully were not there at all in this still life. They all fell off the night before so I had to fake it! This one was a lot of fun to do!
Update: No baby yet, still waiting :(
