Daffodils for spring!

 Spring? It feels like summer is quickly approaching here in the Valley of the Sun!  Yes, it has been a long time since I added something here. But that doesn't mean I haven't been busy, busy with my brushes and otherwise.  I've painted 2 commissions which I will post here, taught a series of watercolor classes in February,  and updated my computer and mailing system. I'm now using MailChimp for my newsletters, so if you are not receiving newsletters and would like to, please send me an email at Catherine@CatherineSickafoose.com.

"Sailing with Michele" (image 15x11) was painted for my niece, Michele Bennett, who is bravely battling breast cancer. Hopefully, this painting will remind her of their beautiful sailboat and sunny days ahead when she will be back on board with husband, Neil.

I'm delivering the other commissioned painting tomorrow so I will wait and post it later.

Meanwhile, mark your calendars for this Saturday, March 29th. I will be hosting my first Open Studio in Phoenix. (Details in Calendar at www.CatherineSickafoose.com) Hours are 10 am to 4 pm. And Patricia Kidwell Lown, jewelry artist, will also be showing her new jewelry designs in precious metals and gemstones.
