Happy 2014! I admit I gave up making New Years resolutions long ago. But if I had one it would be to attend to this blog more regularly.

Between organizing workshops for PaperWorks, the Sonoran Collective for Paper and Book Arts, creating, organizing and scheduling my own workshops for January through May (see my workshop page if you’re interested), I have managed to do some painting. Not as much as I’d like, but at least some. And yes, if I made New Year’s resolutions, that would be another one—kind of a do-or-die I will paint every afternoon from 1-6 no matter what else falls through the cracks.

At any rate, here’s what I’ve got on the easel right now.

















Some progress from the last time I posted (see previous blog post).










Two sunflower paintings, some progress.










And best of all, a brand new, freshly stretched and gessoed canvas on the left, just waiting for me to attack it.

Which is what I intend to do right now!
