Catching up and new work

I have been busy getting things sorted here in the studio for a new site selling my work.  I now have paintings at the JW Frame Gallery here on the island as well as at the Island Art Association.  For any folks up near Atlanta, my painting, After the Rains, will be in the Women Painters of the Southeast juried show and sale, at the Blue Ridge Mountain Arts Association in Blue Ridge Mountain Georgia beginning with previews on April 3 and open through May 1st. 

I have just photographed a couple of new paintings, one of which I share below. 

36 x 24 Oil on Canvas
This painting comes from hiking around desert botanical gardens in Arizona last year.  The light was so crisp and sharp while we were there that all the edges shimmer when you look at the plants.  This is an aloe that was just at peak bloom.  The aloe was around 4 foot tall and had an impressive "beard" of old dry leaves.
