Howdy!  Long time no blog.  It’s been…um, hectic and interesting…”interesting” as in that old Chinese curse: May you live in interesting times.

I painted two things yesterday — a chicken and the “that a way” part of my studio sign.  The main “studio” and the stick I painted years ago when Pip and I taught a glass fusing class in my then-studio which was a three-car garage that I wanted to make look, well, NOT like a three car garage. 

chicken-painting-1The glare is from the freshly applied varnish.  This painting is 20 inches wide by 16 inches high…and I hope Gillian’s parents like it enough when they come to visit  in two weeks that they will take this silly chicken back to Bethesda with them…for her bedroom.










gh-studio-signThat’s my potting shed…the barn/studio is, as the sign suggests, off to the right.










I’ve been living out here in the country long enough now that when I was trying to figure out what to paint on that wooden arrow, the first thing I thought of was “over yonder” !!!


And here are the bromeliads that I’m trying to establish under the oaks adjacent to the barn/studio…I took them from our old house where they had climbed up another oak’s trunk about four feet…lovely colors, huh?bromeliads
