YEAH for goodness!

Butane guys came!!! Hot water and the stove are back.  That is a very good thing.

Finished this:

It's about 50 x 55, more or less.  Again, the palette knife is left in for size reference.

Something else to bear in mind, and maybe the route we should always take in the future.  It is truly who you know.

I too am painting like a mad woman...and reading and planning sculpture, and ...nursing 2 sick kids!

but anyway...totally amazing paintings!
Time to move to canvas girl.
You can tack the loose canvas to boards, then remove, then stretch to show.
They are worth alot more that way.
Love these. X Nomad

These are so different than what you've been showing us, and yet, somehow they are more *you* than the others. Love the juxtapositions you are using.

Nomad, I was thinking of tacking canvas directly onto the wall and then when it's done I can pull it off. Sort of a giant cork board..though maybe ply.....Don't know why your sorry, though I am sorry that both of your kids are sick. Kiss them for me. How is your cousin doing?

JG, I am so glad that you like them!

Wow, you are working BIG. What fun though. I'm not getting why you have butane but no heat. Good thing it's Spain! A hot bath is my favorite way to heat up my bones. Maybe if you painted really fast, you could generate some more heat. Just saying

I could visit your blog just for the paintings. Are you sure you are not a full time, professional painter? I love the colours, the ideas. Next time I'll try to read a bit more.

Bodhi, I've got a lead on really cheap canvas on rolls, I am thinking of fixing a big piece of ply to the wall and staple gunning the canvas to that while I work. REALLY big!!!

Swenglishexpat, you know how to make a girl feel good. I so wish I were!
