This is the first still life post vacation. The ribbon was raided from a friend's gift wrapping bag. (Thanks, Lindy!) I am not sure this painting is done; I am trying to resist mucking with it until I know what it needs.

This art lover is at the MOMA in New York reading about "Flag", a painting by Jasper Johns. I loved the combo of the stars and the polka dots, although they were time consuming to paint.

This posting was slightly delayed--- I have been in Texas where funny and fun things were happening. I happened to be in Texas when Carol Marine happened to be having a party to celebrate her new studio. Then, Qiang Huang showed up at the party and I got to visit with him and his lovely wife, Song. Both Carol and Qiang have wonderful blogs-- check them out. Pictured below is Qiang, Song and Carol Marine in Carol's studio.

The image to the left is the most recent version of this tulip painting. I had great fun painting the initial rendition but months later after many sideways glances the muddled quality of the background began to bother me. Hence, the second, brighter version which is perhaps too bright. It may have another reincarnation.

Explaining Rothko

She was very excited by this Rothko painting on display at the Museum of Modern Art. He --- not so much.
