Pretty vacant

spring time in the dirt, sometimes it is hard to work

I am happy to report I have completed the massive 5.5x7ft commission I have been working on since January. I am just waiting for the painting to be delivered to the client. I might show it to you sometime. I am still waiting to begin the next batch of work, the next series. I have some tiny ideas, some grand ones and some false starts. We will see what happens.

I have been enjoying photography in the meantime and walking in the spring weather and listening to all the music lovely people give me. I have been talking a lot lately. I have been having wild dreams. All of this is tumbling around in my head and as soon as it reaches that critical point it will come out in the form of a painting or twenty. I have been productive just not in ways that are clearly seen or easily shared.

Here are a couple of links to photography things that I find inspiring.

Here is a song that I have been listening to a lot lately as well.

Oh and I sold three paintings this week. That was an exciting surprise. I was also rejected by a gallery. Oh well. That is how it goes. Life is basically good, actually life is magical and most things are possible in this world if you want them and can dream them.

Write your story and make it happen. I believe in you.


  1. Spring & all the wonderful inspiration being born from walks, new music.. all & everything that surrounds..
    Congratulations on the new sales! and that life is magical, go with it!
    Life is more than cracks in the canvas.

  2. Hear, hear! I love the amazing fact that we write our own stories...

    I've been making lists and plans and having loose visions of new paintings...

    Happy Spring to you Megan :))
