Skyscapers - 6x12

This will be my last post for the next couple of weeks, we are leaving tomorrow for Italy/Switzerland.  Very exciting! And I will be away from email and computers (my wrist is singing songs of joy, it still hasn't recovered from website building last week  

I thought I'd post one from the New York series that I've started. I've been working on these the past few days and I've really enjoyed exploring the different grays...completely opposite from what I'm used to painting around here.

Yanonali and State - 5x7

I've been neglecting my blog this week because I've been busy building a website, a real one! Now I'm taking a break from that since my mousing wrist is killing me! Less computer, more painting today :)

Playing with panorama, take a look inside my studio!

Today is the second day of the studio tour.  Yesterday was a huge success! Thank you so much to everyone that visited :) I wasn't lonely for even a minute! 
I was playing with my new panorama app before the tour started yesterday...the lighting in these is just horrible but I'm going to post them anyway.

West Beach - 8x10 & Studio Tour this weekend!

Don't forget to visit me during the Artist's Studio Tour tomorrow and Sunday (studio location is found in the link, or you can email me for directions). My studio is as clean (and full) as it will probably ever be, and I'd love to have lots of visitors! :)

Yanonali St. Corner - 6x6

I accidentally stayed up until 1:00 AM last night finishing a painting.  That's what happens when my husbands goes out of town for work, my schedule gets turned upside down and I become nocturnal.  Thankfully he comes back home tomorrow :)
