Happy August!  

Wow, July was sure a hot month.  The studio was sizzling, not from the heat, but from the exciting projects coming to completion this month.  Take a few moments to journey through the studio with me to see some highlights.  ....A new floorcloth, a completed horse portrait table, and a glass painting class at Serpent Ridge Vineyard.
Right now I

am clearing the easels in preparation for paintings for a local architectural firm, a custom made rya rug for a Los Angeles artist, and working on woodcut designs for an organic and sustainable farm/ranch in Durango, Colorado.  Byrd is busy as a bee!


Just Off the Easel...


 This is my most recent floorcloth painted for two dear friends who are getting married this month.  If you know who they are, please don't forward this newsletter to them!

Project COMPLETE and in its new home...


You saw the beginnings of this project in my last newsletter.  Now you can take a look at the tabletop art:  Four horse portraits and the farm name.  Click here to go to blogpost to see horse portraits.
