yesterday, at last

My otherwise perfect studio has had its fair share of hiccups this winter in the heat department. I had my trusty friend George, thank-you!! come by and jigger the Rinnai this week so that yesterday, Sunday, I got to spend the entire afternoon finishing up a painting that I had set aside in the deep freeze.  It feels a little winter in palette and summer in content.  Wishful thinking to warmer climes?

heart of winter

We're in it.  Actually buried by it.  There is simply no where to put any more snow. Yesterday was a spectacularly beautiful day after the latest storm, much of the day spent shoveling paths here and there and digging out our cars.

 its a long way to go for fresh eggs!

After all that physical labor I took on a bigger challenge and sat down at the computer.  We are not the best of friends, and often don't seem to speak the same language. But I am happy to announce that after much of the afternoon, I managed to open my first on line shop.  I intend to sell my smaller work through this venue- things that are easy to ship and more importantly affordable to a larger audience.  Let's see if it works!  I had an auspicious start of three sales by nightfall of the full moon- so I am taking that as a good sign from the universe!  Thank you all who follow me here, and please take a look over here.  Let me know what you think- I'd love to hear from you.
