June is kinda a crazy busy month for me. School is out. (Magoo, I am proud to report, got straight A's all year long.) Lots of birthdays. My art is up at a restaurant called The Spicy Green Bean in Glastonbury. And I'm preparing for summer art camp at the end of June.
But I have had a little time to work on some art. The piece above, Bowl of Pears, is a watercolor that I recently completed. I am trying to do smaller watercolors, as I have had a difficult time selling the larger ones. Also, if the original artwork is smaller, it will fit in my scanner, and I can get a better reproduction for prints and cards.
The work below was done for a specific show at the West Hartford Art League in the Fall. All pieces have to be 24" X 24" and self-portraits.

It went faster than I thought it would and I enjoyed making it more than I thought I would. But, as a 44 year old woman, hunching over to place tiny squares of paper on a canvas is not easy on my back. I don't think there will be too many of these in my future. Still, I like how it turned out.
Did you see the Tonys? Go Hamilton!
My heart and love goes out to Orlando.
Hope you all are well.
Thank you for stopping by.
Love is love is love is love.
