This is where I paint. In a small corner of my kitchen. I never feel left out, life goes on all around me. My dogs come by and keep me company. The smell of cooking and baking surrounds me and when I get tired, all I have to do is lift my eyes.
Congratulations, Gosia, Renee and Annie

Cindy, my premier student, and I painted all day yesterday. And when she made her 2 hour drive home, she left behind these beautiful bisque vessels and hand built tiles. See how perfectly straight the tiles are? Not easy to do.
Thrown by Cindy, on her potter's wheel, the shapes make my heart jump for joy. I see all of the possibilities . . . but is my painting worthy? Should I just glaze them and leave them all white, or should I add only a little gold? Should I make them look as if they have survived centuries, as I often do?
What do you think?
