Survived the Eclipse, Sort Of

Good morning from my studio in East Nashville. I hope you were lucky enough to see the eclipse yesterday. Unfortunately, my little part of East Nashville was under heavy cloud cover and I could not see the sun at all. Of course, within an hour after the eclipse had passed, the sky cleared and the…

Back In The Saddle Again

Good morning from my studio in East Nashville. I am officially back from my month long sabbatical. I spent the month taking it very easy, and did not do any painting. I felt I needed the break and I think I was correct. Thinking back on my time in art, I realized I had not…

Out of the Snow

Good morning from my studio in East Nashville. Looks like we survived the “snowpocolyse” of 2024. It’s been a long time since we had a snow and ice event like that, and I, for one, will be happy if it’s a long time before another one. Here’s Ava. This was actually a post-Christmas birthday present…

From Rain to Snow

Good morning from my studio in East Nashville. Last week I posted a cute cat and talked about the soaking rain we were getting. This morning I’ll post a cute dog and talk about the snow we have gotten. It’s a good seven inches of snow on my back patio. I just went to take…

Portrait for a Soggy Day

Good morning from my studio in East Nashville. I hope everyone is staying dry today as we get our first soaking rain in months. We certainly need the rain, and at least we are not getting the blizzard conditions that some parts of the country are getting. Can you imagine the chaos at the grocery…

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from my studio in East Nashville! I hope everyone had a great holiday season and enjoyed some time off. I know I did, but after yesterday I need to go on the football wagon for a while. Just too much yesterday, though the games were exciting. I got all the portraits I…
