Lisa is here and has set up a temporary studio in my office. She was a good influence on me today. She was up and at work early this morning.
She is working on a deadline of illustrations for a cookbook. It is fun to see how she develops the painting, adding layers and colors and definition.
I got a lot done, working next door in my studio. I am almost ready to start the quilting of my 12 x 20 piece.
I did some printing with white paint on blue fabric today to use later for my 3 x3’s. I really am loving working with blue. I think this whole exercise will be an enlightenment for me. Here is today’s 3 x 3:
This is printed with my aspen leaf thermofax screen. I love the wintery look of it.
Tonight was the opening of Lisa’s small show with her friend Trish Grantham at Land PDX, a gallery and bookstore on Mississippi in North Portland.
It was a gorgeous day again today. The sun was out all day. The days are getting longer. I love it. Here is the sunset today as I took Scooter out at the end of the day. The sun is much higher at 4:30.
And lastly, here are the first of the Helibores blooming in the Rhodie Garden.
