Pungent sage brush rustles with a family of wild turkeys as the heavy clouds lift up from the horizon. It is morning, early morning. Low hills glisten with the dampness of departing rains. Why not revisit? After all, it has been five years has it not?
I pick up my brush and begin reworking the canvas. After an hour or so of stepping back and forth, it seems to be coming along.
The morning light sliced through the heavy storm clouds over the high desert in Orville Washington.

I am happier with it now I think. Those variations of blues make the photo editing program cross-eyed. You will just have to believe me when I say it is much nicer in person. Details and purchase information is available in the on online gallery HERE.
Mostly, this week has been a time of catching up and preparing for the next show which is Art!Vancouver Fair, May 25 – 28, 2017 at the Vancouver Conference Centre, East 999 Canada Place. I am showing my paintings with three other Canadian artists in 30 feet of booth space sponsored by Artists in Canada. I would love to see you there and your friends too for that matter 😉 The details regarding advance tickets and such are on the website HERE.
Other than that it has been long walks sometimes in sun and sometimes in rain.Spring is here. Taxes were done on time. Life is good.
What are you enjoying most about your week so far?

Terrill — I’m so excited about this opportunity for you. You’re going to have a blast at Art!Vancouver Fair, at the Vancouver Conference Centre!
I do believe you are right Laurie. I have three other amazing artists sharing the large 30 foot booth with me so we are off to a great start.
Terrill, as usual, I am completely at home inside one of your paintings, the High Desert Dawn is a view I enjoy almost every morning from my back porch.
So glad to hear it Sandi. I was really taken by the smells of the early morning desert after a summer rain. So pungent and intriguing!
