New Studio and New Paintings

It's been a bit since I posted because I was working like mad in all my free time (of which there is very little) to finish the new studio and move in. So, bruised and banged, still getting paint from my hair, it's done and I'm in. It feels so good, I don't want to leave it and don't look at it on days I'm headed to the gallery cuz if I do, that's where I'm drawn! So, here are some pics for you:
this is looking from the dining room, down into the studio. Sorry it's a little dark, the light from the windows confused the camera!

This look in from the master bath, which is on the same level as the studio (three steps down from the rest of the house.)
and this is standing in the corner by the first window, looking back toward the stairs and the dining room. I'm particularly proud of the way the rammed earth wall with the engraved zia came out painted. I didn't know if would work, but I love it!

here is a painting I just finished:

It is 30 high and 24 wide, acrylic and gold on canvas. "A River Runs Through It".

And this is what you see on my table in the studio photos. It is a diptich..two 36 x 12 canvases, and also acrylic. I hope to finish it on Sunday...or maybe I'll take it to the Visitor Center and finish it on Saturday. We'll see.

I'm going to call it "Transitions: Self Reflection"

So, you see, I have been busy! In the meantime, John and I celebrated 21 years of marriage, and I was re-elected the board of the Chamber of Commerce. That's enough for two weeks!
