I am thinking about layering paint with these. What colors, textures and values should come first and what colors, textures and values should be on top and what should transition the two? These paintings generated new ideas for this type of layering that I want to test. I am working from photographs for these and I really miss working from my sketches. Working from my sketches frees me to be more creative by separating me from the realistic representation.

I am definitely being influenced by the recent work of my friend, Catalina Rankin, on this one. Hope that she doesn't mind. I was thinking of doing a new series of restaurant themed paintings to leave and sell through the Chop House. I have shown my work there for a number of years.

I thought that the morning light coming into the tent early Saturday morning was pretty. A calm before the crowds. The energy Saturday was electric, you can sense when people are really considering buying and that is exciting. Sunday, I felt people were just out taking a stroll to enjoy themselves.
I thought all you Harn docents might be interested in what I taught the preschoolers with inspiration from the African Textile exhibit.
