Sand Castle

Have you ever seen a more spectacular sand castle?  Almost the entire 19 family members contributed.  We have fun together.  I love the ocean so much.

Don't mind if I do. Thanksgiving on the beach, craftin' up a storm and enjoying the company of my family. Happy Thanksgiving.

I had to put off so many pieces to finish my Tree of Life show. Now that I can finally get back to them, I'm having a hard time focusing. I'm all over the place! One of the things I'm excited about this nine piece series. All nine will hang in a row and will be interwoven, interacting, and a cohesive set. The series is a study of the attitudes of sisterhood. Also known as the Pam paintings. She is a good model and looks a little like a Kershisnik painting in real life.

Hands, Oranges, and Florida

I love painting hands.  I'll admit, I like painting my own hands the best.  A familiarity thing I suppose.  When I paint my hands someone always says, "those are so your hands." (Ok, that someone is usually Gavin).  I am currently working on these paintings with "sewing" hands.I'd like to give a shout out to Florida. Apparently I have a blog-following in the Sunshine State (according to google analytics). So, hip hip and thanks.

Shiver me timbers, I think those are about the cutest pirates I ever saw.  Hope your Halloween was spooktaculair.

So I got back almost a week ago... I had to wait for my sisters to post about our trip so I could swipe their pictures.  (Cass always has her camera out, so I never need to get mine out and I end up without any pictures.) And now I am all backed up and Halloween is going to be so passe by the time I get to it...  

Anyway, we had a fabulous show in Connecticut.  The gallery looked great and the company was entertaining.  

We had a delightfully stretchy ride to the City where we perused the Met.

After that, we went our separate ways for the sisters three to have a cosmopolitan adventure.  And that we did.  Shop-shop-shopping from soaps to art supplies to trimmings to the most fabulous shoes.  We wore ourselves out and had a relaxing respite in the hotel sauna.  The weather was gorgeous, the food delicious, the art inspiring, and my sisters are still and always the best.  
It was hard to say goodbye.
