New Prints in the Works

Portland is abuzz with holiday pop-up stores and annual craft fairs this weekend, but as much as I'd like to go out and about, I've decided my time is best spent in my studio, working on my own endeavors. Oh, I guess at some point, I might take a break to get desperately needed food, or to move forward with decorating the house for the holidays. . . . but really, I'd so much rather DO ART!   Nevertheless, I've been sticking to my "paint a little/clean a little/blog a little" mantra and it's been most helpful.  Each night, this past week, I gently prodded myself to "Spend a few minutes working on something. Just get started,"  and perhaps not so surprisingly, the above materialized. :)  And speaking of materializing, take a peek at one of my favorite images created by Portland artist, Lisa Kaser; and when you do, promise me that you will read her delightful prose that accompanies the image, and then commend yourself for the work you bring forth.  (If you missed my earlier post about Lisa, you can find it here.)

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend.

Thanks very much for your continued interest in my work.  I really do appreciate it!
