New artwork on Society6

Mixed media painting

#1220 Theme and Variations. Mixed media on wood. 17″. $230

I just posted “Theme and Variations” on Society6.com this morning.  You can now get this on quite a variety of items.  I personally like it on the tote bag, though its shape is perfect for the clock and stools that they do.

Last month I put up variations on the “One Side” artwork in different languages.  This Link should hopefully take you there, otherwise go to society6.com and search for ‘One Side’.  It comes up among other unrelated images.  If you like it but want it in your language, let me know.  If you’re a fluent speaker on some of the non-English versions and I haven’t done a good job of the translation – let me know, I can fix it!

Let me know if you’re thinking about ordering anything from my Society6.com store – I frequently get discounts sent to me and would be happy to pass them along to you.

Tales from the field #16

Well, it is sky, after all.  That is my biggest inspiration. Set up in warm weather on Friday, regretting not having brought a pair of shorts and a tank top with me!  But there were a few clouds around.

In the evening I was outside at the airbnb where I was staying in Cornville – about 25 mins drive to the south east. There were clouds and a beautiful double rainbow.  At one point I thought there was a hint of a triple, which is a first-time-in-my-life experience for me.  Unfortunately I was on the phone so didn’t catch the triple.

Today was a nice day until about 11am.  Then we started with a steady drizzle.  At about 2:30 it let up a little, enough to run to the restroom.  From there I could see these clouds low between the mountains.

Rainy weather over Sedona

My booth is on the row second from the right, with the white wall hanging out covering half of the front.

We were thinking tomorrow will be better, but I’ve just looked at the forecast.  <sigh>.

CAS newsletter – and music!

I love to forward the Cloud Appreciation Society’s newsletter.  This time there is a very interesting item about a song written about Luke Howard who is the man who classified the clouds.  You can hear a couple of these through the link, on youtube. I have the CD on order!

Newer work #85

First of three.  These were painted together – small panels that would fit between doors in a hallway.  However, I’ve hung them together in the booth and some people have considered they would make a nice triptych.

Refractured watercolor.

#1364 “Just us Three”. Refractured watercolor on panel 18×5″ $60 inc shipping!

Sonnet Challenge #29

I spent some time in early August hoping we would get rained on, without joy.  I was hopeful yesterday too, with a wind coming up from the gulf, but the dessicating desert air all mopped it up and we just got haze.

Storm Building

I watch the nimbus build across the west
a great gray blanket blotting out the sun,
the gathering of storm has just begun –
we need the rain! The cumulus start to crest
off to the south, into great thunderheads.
The tension builds in the electric air.
I bring the lawn chairs in and thus prepare
for wind that might just tear such things to shreds
with its intensity. I know the drill;
stratus accumulate and start to bear down
as if to smother this belittled town –
they’ll rumble, crack and then they’ll start to spill.
The coulds build up as if to promise rain,
but in the afternoon’s heat dissipate again.

Yucca Valley Presbyterian

This is the second time I’ve had the pleasure of showing work at the Yucca Valley Presbyterian Church.  My mixed media paintings will be in the small meeting room and in the sanctuary during all of September.

Kim Clements is the curator, and Nancy Miehle of the Chaparral Artist was there and helped me set up the show.  While I was there I smelled gas coming from the stove in the kitchen.  The handyman was summoned and we could feel and hear that the oven was on a little, so he shut the gas off at the mains because we couldn’t move the huge stove to look for the leak.  Hopefully I’ve staved off a disaster.

Monthly newsletter

Well, I guess I must be getting old because when I came to schedule the posting of September’s newsletter, I discovered I’d forgotten to post August’s newsletter to WordPress.  So if you only follow me on WordPress you get a double header.  If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you get a repeat!
