This is Vertical #11, 90"x12" on board. It's one of the paintings I've earmarked for Darnell Fine Art
in Santa Fe.
It's been an unseasonably hot day here, which in the fall tends to bring out swarms of pesky Asian lady beetles. Today's photos session involved a lot of pauses to flick beetles off my paintings..they were all over the outside wall where I take my pictures. There--a gritty little glimpse of my life in rural Wisconsin. It was a sticky, hot day in the studio, with lots of all my favorite insects of the season--not just the little lady beetles (which bite and stink) but wasps, flies and box elder beetles.
I am very happy now to be off to the photo retreat weekend mentioned in yesterday's post.
