Several months ago photographer Kristin Teig came to my studio to, well, photograph. We spent several hours in the beautiful morning light, I, painting and trying to not be self conscious with a camera pointing (often) at me, and she, taking lots of beautiful photographs. She's put up a handful on her blog for you to see. I think she's done a wonderful job capturing the feeling of my space. Take a look! Kristin Teig: Creative Workspace

Yesterday I did a study of an orchid. It's been growing happily in my kitchen for weeks, and although I'd been meaning to do a study of it for a while, I hadn't. Yesterday was also the anniversary of a death of a friend. I'm sure I don't need to explain how life is rarely simple, how some anniversaries stick in our minds and hearts like glue while others fade away until we can barely remember the time of year, or what it was that really happened. Yesterday's anniversary was the glue sort. This painting is for you, Kat, in your memory.

Here are a few works in progress, well, nearly at the start really. I had a good day working on the new Sebbie piece; blizzards apparently make for very steady light in the studio, which was great for working, if not for being outside.
