day II

I won’t bore folks with  literally watching paint dry, but the bright sunshine and happy temperament of our new place has provided inspiration to work. Yesterday was such a productive day , for that I am grateful.


“And the Old Gods Were Pleased” in progress

I won’t indulge in a studio play by play, but I’m  happy, at last, to experience some degree of contentment .

(Now I must secure a printmaking facility.)

The pets are as thrilled as their companion, difficult to make out but there is a wee little cat and chihuahua on the couch and the ever present studio pugs at its foot. All pleased as punch.


Until next time,

  1. It’s looking really good! And I wish you good luck with finding a new print studio. That’s too bad that the old one is so far away, but I am sure you’ll figure out something.

  2. I meant to comment on your post yesterday, but was still feeling the effects of my mother-in-law’s visit this past weekend, which was emotionally exhausting on many levels–I couldn’t even string a sentence together. Anyway, WOW. I adore this painting already, especially as it rewrites, as you said, the tired old misogynistic myths that have done us all so much damage. It is stunning, and so appropriate that it is larger than life. Look at those roots! Yes, I think the Old Gods wanted us to know, to have a twisting and pliant, synaptic knowledge of things stretching like roots or mycelia—-those new upstart gods were the ones who wanted to separate, put things in cages and categories, banish people from gardens or chain them to cliffs for wanting to know.
    Looking at this is a beautiful balm to my very difficult weekend. Please keep updating us. Much love, claire

    1. Wow, may I quote you on that!
      Your “getting” it means the world to me.
      Gratitude and love to you,

    1. Thank you Clive, the gods have been kind to me, this place has brought me incredible joy, so happy to be home.
