"Irresistable Invitation" SOLD

 
 “Irresistible Invitation”
12 x 16 oil on museum quality panel
$750, unframed
One artist, a custom studio, nestled in a secret garden = one irresistible offer.   
When my new found friend Dina invited myself and artist buddy Leslie over to have a peek it was pretty much like inviting Eddie out for a catnip cocktail (sometimes Eddie and I are more alike than I  am comfortable to admit…).  Dina’s place reminded me of how meaningful it is to create such a personal space.  She recalled plants that were given by friends, others that were collected on travels, some that came close to being rooted out to suddenly explode with these amazing blooms that dropped down from above like mini parachutes.  Into her studio from books that inspired her to  paintings in various stages, handmade artists tiles to a colorful paper streamer from her grandchild’s birthday party–Dina has surrounded herself with the things that make her heart sing.  And that is bound to translate into paintings of joy.  
Whatever your work, whatever your passion in life is, it does matter to do these things for yourself.  It is not frivolous or unimportant.  It  creates a well from which to fill your bucket!  Heck–it’s a well for others to fill their buckets too!  I felt refreshed for just having had a peek into Dina’s nest and it makes me happy to think of her there, painting her heart out.  
Thanks Dina–and Leslie–and California..:))

In Other News:
I am still “on the road” but have heard that Eddie is planning a welcome home party for me.  Phyllis was all atwitter with the purchasing of the food–which was what alerted me that perhaps it wasn’t really about me after all (what was I thinking–really, it’s Eddie!)  Menu items??  tuna melts, tuna salad, tuna on a stick (?), tuna kabobs, tuna tartar, tuna pie, fried tuna, tuna surprise, tuna tacos, tuna creme pie (yeah, that one got me too), tuna overboard, twice baked tuna (as if once weren’t enough), tuna with a twist, tuna cocktail, tunacolada, tuna….well, you get the picture.  It all smells fishy to me.  Trust me, if on a long shot he happens to find my list and send you an invitation, you will not hurt my feelings by not coming.  I have to go.  I live there.  You, on the other hand, can tell him you have allergies…to tuna.  Nuff said.

    If the ahi that was served at Leslie’s was on the menu, I would be there in a heartbeat! Thank you for helping to open my eyes to the world of color. I thought that I could see color before, but now, it’s as if I have a brand new rainbow on my palette! I have never been so excited as I was when I came back from your workshop with Leslie. I continue to be astounded by what you both taught and how I now apply it to my paintings and my world.ReplyCancel
