Flower paintings-R-US lately. But I like doing them and people really like to have flowers in their homes. I may have hit on something. This bouquet my darling daughter picked while walking the dog. She said it was for "inspiration" for me. What a girl. and very inspiring. I couldn't have picked a better bunch myself. In fact - this isn't the first time I've painted flowers she has brought home for me.
I've been so very busy lately. I'm "cleansing" again. My life is all about soaking legumes, taking teas and saunas (ahhh) and making sure I have enough bowel movements and vegetables. It takes a solid two hours a day - and more if I have time. But the benefits are very real. I did a cleanse last fall and I'm a whole new person for it today.
Last weekend my husband and I cruised up to Coos Bay where I had a painting in a show at the Coos Art Museum. It was a juried show - I did not win a prize - which I never expect to, but always want to. It was a pretty good show, lots of room and lots of BIG paintings. There were several that I would have loved to own and several that I couldn't stand.
On our way home from Coos Bay we drove down 101 to Gold Beach to drop off paintings for the Gold Rush Art Festival. The highlight of that drive was stopping at Cape Blanco - wow, wow, wow. We're going to stay there for a couple of days this summer - it's the most wonderful State Park in Oregon. Many State Parks are near the highway - but this one is five miles out, has amazing beaches and insane views. We're so exicted.
