sunny days and kai's paintings

 Friday was a beautiful, sunny day. It felt so much like summer we took the day off and went on another unsuccessful fishing trip (we caught my finger, and some licheny stuff) on the warm waters of Lake Sonoma. Our first day of leisure in about two months, since we started working seven day weeks.

I really don't mind working every day, not only do I get lots of things done, but it helps me deal with my psychological need to constantly work. Relaxing can be kind of stressful. Does that mean I have a problem? :)
The previous weekend Kai had his show in Forestville. It was a very fun opening with a good attendance, and he's already sold two paintings. Above is my favorite wall of the gallery. Those paintings span something like fifteen feet...maybe more. You can see more images of his show and recent work here.

romantic tuesday

Despite the endless cloudy days, Spring is in full force. Tulips and daffodils appear randomly, polka dotting the hillside around our house. I wonder how long ago they were planted...and how many years  they will continue to pop up?

Spring makes me dream of far off places and adventures, and attempt to tackle the messy piles accumulating in my studio. It also makes me do copious amounts of Etsy window shopping, daydreaming of all the wonderful warm weather things I would buy, if I hadn't just paid a small fortune in taxes :(
