John, my husband and only "staff", especially enjoyed his role as chef during Open Studios and was so happy with the rave reviews on his Lavender Brownies! Of course the culinary lavender that he used was from the Red Rock Lavender Farm. We hung the completed lavender paintings that I had worked on during their festival in June along with the original painting, "Let's Sit Among the Lavender".

It was a real treat to be invited to share my watercolor technics with the visitors to the Lavender Festival on June 29th. I will post my completed paintings soon.

"Arizona Remembers 9/11, Tempe Beach Park" (image 11x16)This painting is now being shown at Brandy's Restaurant in Flagstaff with a little narrative explaining the setting. It was up for one day only, September 11, 2011, on the 10th anniversary of the attack. There was a flag with a placard for each life lost - a symbolic reminder to all of us of the loss to America on that day. My husband, John, was in the Valley and took photos for me so that I was able to paint this watercolor. (It is available in giclée prints.)

Here is a sneak preview of my show going up at Brandy's on Monday. These images are special to the high country in and around Flagstaff, but I will have images from all over the State as we celebrate this centennial year in Arizona. Plan to have breakfast or lunch and catch these while you can - they are originals (no prints available on these). Show opens Tuesday, June 5th! I'm still painting - check back tomorrow for another preview.

So much news. I've been busy painting and have some new watercolors that will be ready for my Spring and Summer shows in Flagstaff. Also some new venues coming up. But this is just the best news that I want to share it with you first. I now have an ad on Susan Branch's website www.SusanBranch.com with a link to my website! Many of you know that Susan has been an inspiration to me for years - her work is so charming! So I am thrilled to be able to advertise my website with her. Just click on the "Inspiration" in the right hand column of her home page and it will take you to her special page with blogs and sites that she wants to share. You will see my ad there in the top corner. Look for the daffodils...

Recently, a fellow artist was telling some folks about visiting my open studio and said she was amazed by all the "eye candy" as she entered the room! She said the paintings themselves as well as all the other items that I was showing my work on - the quilt blocks, the ceramic tiles, the holiday ornaments, the small table top easels and cards of various types. Today, I sent out my request for a Host Studio for the 2012 Hidden in the Hills Open Studio and Sale Event in November.

Did you know that tangerine has been determined to be the color for 2012! How exciting to have such a vibrant, happy color to usher us into the new year! So, of course, I was thinking about what I could paint in "tangerine" and found a painting that I have not shared with you yet. "La Jolla Sunset" (image 10x14) was a commissioned piece that I painted last fall. I had to wait to show it here to be sure that it had been presented to its recipients and I wouldn't spoil the surprise. It's a perfect take on the tangerine theme and would look wonderfully exciting in so many landscapes if you don't have palm trees where you live!
If you don't have a spot for a sunset, how about a still life or flowers? My mind is going crazy with ideas, so I'd better get my brushes busy! Where can you add a splash of tangerine?!
