Dinner Plate Dahlias

After what seemed like far too long, I finally unpacked my paints today. My mother has beautiful gardens around her house, so today I planted myself in front of some amazing dinner plate dahlias and had a go at painting them in the sun.

It would undoubtably be easier if I brought them inside and controlled the light and the wind, but it was too lovely a day not to sit in the garden.

Alaskan Triptych

The Alaskan triptych I've been working on is almost done. It's been interesting to work on three paintings that go together, wanting each painting to work on its own while working with the group as a whole.

The pieces together as they are now. I'm going to frame them separately with the intention that they be hung together.

odds and ends

I've been finishing up some last few paintings before I'm out of my studio at the end of the month, but the actual moving has become more pressing than the painting. I'm busy packing and framing and varnishing and doing lots of other rather mundane tasks. As I'm simultaneously moving out of my apartment, time spent enjoyably painting has been rather limited. So, instead of new updates, here are some details of old paintings:

August is proving to be a complicated month. I'm moving at the end of it and haven't quite worked out the details of where I'm going. I am, however, packing up my studio, so there's a bit of a mad dash to the finish to get all the paintings done. Plus there's preparing for two shows and sending things off to various galleries, which means logistics are getting tricky.
So, anyway, here are the updates of paintings:

And Sebbie, of course.
