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.
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.
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.
