I was finally able to do some painting yesterday, which was my first and last painting session for the week. I've had such a busy time of it lately. I began a small painting I think I'm going to call "Reflecting", based on a photograph my husband took several years ago of a friend's Bed & Breakfast in New Zealand. It's an atmospheric interior that I may develop into a series of interior paintings, something I've wanted to do since painting "Bishop's 4th Street Diner", pictured below, in 2004.

Getting Organized

Beautiful weather today. It's starting to feel like Fall, which isn't all that bad. At least it's still pretty warm during the day.

Decided to reorganize my studio. I hung all my new paintings gallery style. I'd like the space to be more welcoming for potential customers, and I'm hoping the new arrangement will inspire me, which it has done. Unfortunately I was too tired to paint once I'd finished, but I'll be rearing to go tomorrow.

Art Affair on the Fence

I had a great day on Saturday. The first ever Art Affair on the Fence at the First Congregational Church in Bristol, RI went rather well. The weather was fantastic, and we had a good crowd. I sold a few pieces and met some very nice people, including other artists at the show. It's always good to network.

I have a quiet spell to concentrate on other projects now. I'm hoping to work on a new series over the next couple of months, something I haven't had time for in the past. I'm looking forward to this new creative period.
