Close call

It was a close call for me and a direct hit for my poor studio. On October 15, I was painting during a big windstorm. Just as I was thinking that being in the studio was like being right IN the storm, the neighbor’s huge pine tree crashed down onto the roof. I was able to get out by climbing through a window but the damage is extensive.

You know it’s hot in the studio when…

Paint bottles

…the heat is making the paint bottles pop open! The Portland area is having a heat wave like nothing I can remember in my 24 years here. I don’t have air conditioning in the studio, so paint is drying too fast even in the late morning. Paintings are coming along very slowly and I’m keeping busy with other projects for now.
