Tail Feathers


Tail Feathers, acrylic/collage, 12 x 12

I'll be on vacation for a week beginning this Friday, so I am frantically trying to get details nailed down for the show. My wonderful sister is working on my postcard. (Lucky me-- there's a painting she wants.) I've ordered frames and begun to work on the publicity. Finishing and framing are on the schedule for August, and I hope to get in some painting during the month on two or three final pieces for the exhibit. As of today, I've stock-piled over thirty works of varying sizes.


Reflections and musings...
I am content. I cannot say that has been the primary state of being in my ever-lengthening existence! But sometimes, when I am still and pay attention, calm and satisfaction can catch up with me. Enough...this is enough -- just right. Life is good.

The painting makes me smile--and the thought of contented summer makes me smile, as well. Enjoy your break, and have a fabulous show.
