I have a "thing" for spirals in general and this one has been calling to me daily saying - finish me. Currently there are four works in progress and this has been by far the most demanding. But I'm calling it finished now; the paint is still drying. Next!

And what a gorgeous summer it is in New England this year! Yesterday after work George and I took a long country drive, stopped at our favorite outdoor barbeque for dinner and just soaked in the summer sun. It was magical and revitalizing. It reminded me how much I enjoy summer and the longer days.
As many of you know, I've been working a lot of hours around my day job to create new paintings for my solo show in September. The painting is going well and my body of work is growing. I have six more weeks to finish my artwork...and I'm happy to say I'm on track. This is kind of a big deal for me, as I'm a slow painter and this it is a big challenge to put together so much work in this time period.
These paintings and a number of other works were added to my website yesterday. They are untitled and the dimensions are not yet listed, but I wanted to put some new work "out there" to give you an idea of what I will be including in this exhibition.
Below is a painting I created a while ago, but have not yet exhibited. I added more lines with warmer colors to strengthen the impression of a tree trunk more strongly as shown on the right. Think it works?
While I will be back in the studio this weekend, I'm going to make some time to go to my favorite swimming hole and soak up some more of summer's goodness.
Happy Friday - wishing you a great weekend!
