Motherhood Was Out of Focus

Some pieces just come together like magic. This is one of those pieces. The ironic thing with painting this week is that I worked on this piece which is quite dark in color and another piece that is very bright with hot pink, greens and turquoise. Obviously, I must be Sybil of the art world.

Made some big decisions about my art this week. Mainly it was about working big and forgoing the small pieces for awhile to see how this works for me.

My Contemporary Hispanic Market Piece

I have had these panels for years and always knew I wanted to have a gold leaf background so I finally did it. It is an ode to Valesquez's Las Meninas. The crows love bling as much as I do hence their presence. The gold leaf really makes the piece glow.

Sandra and I both hope to see you at the market on July 25-26. We can't sell our book there but we will have one for you to see if you stop by.
