Openings and closings

Arabesque. Oil on canvas, 10x30, $200

Thursday, Peter and I went to the opening of the South County Art Association's Regional Open Juried exhibition, and he was toasted and applauded and awarded a richly deserved $150 for one of his beautiful photographs.

Friday, I went to the closing for the sale of our house in New York.

All I can say is yippee on both counts.

Peter's work was by far the standout of the South County Art Association show. The exhibit is strongly contemporary, very edgy, and pretty interesting. If you're in the area of URI, stop in.

The sale of our house was by far the standout of October. It's been on the market for two years, and we've come close to selling it a number of times. This time, finally, the sale went through. I will miss our lovely, quiet spot on the river, but I could not be happier to own just one house, and one with a sunny yard and this fine studio.

I'm pretty excited about this painting, and hope that I've set it at a large enough size that you can see it on your screen and also see the nearly sculptural quality it has in places.

Thanks for reading!

Well done to you both for the exhibition and the sale. And this is quite amazing - you have such a way with colour!

Thanks, Liz! I love color so much - I love the paint, and the color, and the way colors mix and change and smear into each other - it's so basic with me -
