June quickly passes away and I've done nothing in the studio. I've started paintings and one drawing but it seems I can't get them finished. There is so much going on and I'm so busy but I can't figure out what I'm busy doing. I hope July is kinder to me and I can get back on schedule.
Evidently, June must always be a busy time for me. I checked back and last year I have nothing to show for June. The sketches above were from June 2015 from a one day drawing session with a live model. I have nothing in the records for June 2014 either. SAD, very sad.
Thursday, July 6th
Spend the evening with members of the DAC (and me) as they unveil our 2017 Membership Exhibit. I will have the two paintings above in the show and one more. I hope to see you there!

I'm working to recreate an old Homeplace for a friend of mine. Only two photos to work from and either one shows the house in it entirety. One is the side of the house with the family standing for a group pic. It's the top of the chimney and one upstairs window. The other one is the middle of the house with no ends. Was it a four column house or a six?? I'm still working on sketches to show her tomorrow. But, I think I'm getting close.
LBL (Land between the Lakes) had their Old Time Picking Party this last week end. I went down with David and their Dulcimer Group. They were asked to come and share the Mountain Dulcimer with guest and perform Sat. and Sun. I went down to get some photos to draw by and I did a little drawing while I was there.It was a very relaxing week end. LBL, and the Homeplace is located in Dover, TN.
It seems this week in the week of meetings and appointments. Tuesday I had a doctors appointment in Nashville. We stopped by Plaza Art Supply store after the appointment and then lunch with the Grandbabies and our son. Wednesday I volunteer at the Chamber in Erin and another artists decorated the windows for the July 4th Holiday. She finished up today and the windows look great. Today I worked in the STUDIO on a commissioned piece, I have got to get it finished ASAP. Then a meeting for the county Fair this evening. Tomorrow, I will be in the studio again and I need to wash my windows first thing. Later in the afternoon, I have a meeting for another commissioned piece and I'm excited about the possibilities of working on it.. Life is Good, very good.
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
