teabaggirl 82



i have been preparing for three shows.

part of the process has been sifting through

previous paintings.  i find it fascinating that there

are endless faces and expressions in paintings as

well as in real life.  i have forgotten about

many of them but like old friends they 

brought back fond memories of our time together.

i am sharing some oldies.

  2. Hi Irene. I'll be home,maybe not in my studio or perhaps. I do hope it rains over here in the Central Valley as well. Your pieces are awesome and yes remembering does bring memories alive again. I just came from Indira's blog and she brought back a memory to me as well. Have a great day and enjoy your studio time.

    1. Hello Gloria, You have had a trip down memory lane! I also hope you get the rain you need. It is drizzling now, not the downpour predicted but it is better than nothing. Have a lovely week.

  7. Love that black and gold one - very striking. 3 shows at once? That seems like very hard work! Hope all goes well with that.
