Apples and Pottery

This will be my last post for a few days as I start nights tomorrow.  I am always glad to go back to work after I have been off for a week but I really miss having time to paint.  It's just working all night and sleeping all day and I don't have the energy to paint.  I am going to try and do a bit of drawing, though, during some of my breaks at work.

Turquoise and Red

Today I went to a luncheon with 7 other artists to honour one of our group, Sharon Sullivan, who is moving from her house on the Ottawa River to an adorable apartment in Ottawa.  She is looking forward to spending more time with her family and will be closer to shopping, groups of like-minded individuals and in the city mix.  She is a very fun person to be with and I know she will liven up her new apartment building.  The painting is one I did last week before my 12 hour day shift.  It took me until now to get it photographed and ready to post.  I love the combination of red and turquoise - very soothing and exciting at the same time.

This painting was done a few weeks ago and I am finally posting it today.  I have been very busy with my new job and I am suffering from "spring fever". Both previously mentioned conditions have reduced my time at the easel and computer.  At least that is my excuse.
