My blogging pal Gary Everest moved to Hawaii. I inherited his taboret. My "regular" studio is in the basement, but because the taboret has wheels, I can set up a painting station anywhere. Today I painted in the front room. Pretty cool!

Today was art discussion day. To see all the art that showed up...go here.

My dear old Toyota quit on the highway on the way back from the meeting....but she's in good hands now, and I'll get a diagnosis soon. I'm super-grateful for tow truck drivers and mechanics!

That was my was yours?

Love seeing what you've been up to while I was sick. The floral is lovely and there is a lightness and freshness to it that feels spring-like. The rainy city street is beautiful and I do so love rainy days. Glad you enjoyed a different spot to paint in too! Looks like a perfect studio space right there in the living room! Or at least a little mini studio!

Aloha Celeste,
Nice taboret! And much too nice a room to risk to a dropped paint brush.
It's fun to see the cart being put to good use.
Sorry the Toyota became ill in such an inopportune location. Maybe the old girl just needed a rest.
We picked-up our car yesterday and were amazed at how clean it was. One of the Matson fellows chalked it up to a rain shower. So, now we have the car and tomorrow we'll sign a lease for the wonderful condo we'll call home for the next year--and many more, we hope.
Of course, we've said that before and always seem to find a more interesting place. I wouldn't be surprised if we continue our habit pattern.
So, I hope the auto repair is inexpensive and you have a spectacular Friday and weekend.

Well, first, I love seeing the scale of this painting and the taboret in the living room looks like a set uup from 'House beautiful"! sorry about the car though :( hope it's a cheap fix!

Paint any place you like! Looking at your discussion group's paintings was like visiting an art gallery--great work.

Sorry about your car.

Painting in the living room, wow. You must be extremely neat. Honey would have a fit. Did it once and had to call the 'spot man" to come get the Cadmium Red Light out of the carpet. Just the flick of a brush can be disastrous--and that's a pretty nice area rug.

I do not understand the contract with the artist thing when you buy a painting. Who would sign someone else's work with their own name if they sold it? Maybe I missed something?

Went gallery hopping yesterday to check out pricing. Interesting. What would be interesting too would be the amount of sales made at said prices. That info, no one tells you. I for size at this point.

Good post. Impressive art shown at the art talk.
