Recently I worked on the Portrait "Fran" for the Newburyport Portrait Show in September, it has a ways to go yet. Then I've started another 30x40" acrylic that I like because of the geometric patterning of the rows of plantings in a garden at Steven Coolidge Place in No. Andover. Today I should be painting at Cox Reservation with David Curtis' group and I'll head over there about 1 p.m. and then attend a reception at The Nook in Rockport at 5. Spring arrived very late here in New England and I still haven't done my yard work. I know that if I don't get out there soon, the weeds will get out of control. The People Painting People Project for Merrimac MA for the month of August is still gaining ground, and tomorrow morning I take down my solo show at the Rhythm Cafe. I had a very good show there with lots of nice comments and many sales. I'm going to buy Rosemary Brushes with the proceeds and supplies for the Lori Putnum workshop in June.
