Busy, busy, busy and I know I'm not alone. Everyday on Facebook it appears a lot is going on with my fellow artists. For me, I'm moving at full speed. Well it feels like full speed. I just finished a new painting with all the things I love--kitchen stuff. This one I'm calling "Baked in Tradition." Remember the metal flour sifter used before our bags of flour were presifted. Also included is one of three of my cast iron skillets. The glass milk bottle comes from my great aunt's dairy farm from years past. Those that have already have seen this painting have asked how I painted the red checked fabric. I would love to tell you but I will save that for my workshop in the fall (Oct. 22-26).
