On to new adventures

studio piece glazed/layered oils on canvas "This must be the place" 16"x16"

This past week something rather out of the ordinary occurred.  My husband and I decided it was time to move.  Within one week of making this incredibly stressful and life changing decision we had a for sale sign up in our front yard.  We are never ones to take our time with these sort of things, the decisions in life that most other mature people are likely to mull over, research, work out on paper by making lists of pros/cons.  Once we have an idea it usually comes to fruition at absolutely light speed.  Maybe this is why our lives are so unpredictable. 

Next week my boys, age 13 and 9, start school again.  I know I'll feel it when they go, but right now I'm looking forward to some undisturbed studio time--in between the packing.

Hi Sarah, Doing the charts is a very useful activity. Since you work indirectly you might also want to do the chart with glazes as well as the mixed colors. I am working on glazed chart (after doing the mixed charts long ago) to see just those beautiful grays of which you speak.
Where will you move? (did I miss that?)
Beautiful works on your blog.

Hi Loriann,
thanks! We are staying in NM, just need a larger house. I need a real studio! I've never had one so I'm really keeping my finger crossed that it will happen with this move.

I did a small experiment with colors & glazes on a chart before, it is helpful when I'm trying out new colors.
