This is another piece from my NYC series. This was a great little daschund who was walking with his owner at one of the riverside parks on the Upper East Side. I've enjoyed painting a couple of dogs in action, but they're so difficult to get good photos of them. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do that?

This little plumeria was a lovely break from all the shophouses and landscapes I had been doing. It was so interesting to focus entirely on different shapes and volume from what I am used to. I never realized how tough flowers can be compositionally - and that is before you ever try to paint them! Whoa. I especially love this flower because it reminds me of Hawai'i and the girls with flowers in their hair.

I'll be taking some time this week to get the business side of my art in order. The majority of the house is unpacked, which is nice, but I need to attend to some projects with my art that I've been putting off. If only we could just paint without worrying about the details! But one of the projects I'm working on you will notice today in the email. I'm updating the daily email newsletter and also starting on a quarterly one for more major updates. Things are moving and shaking this summer!

This is another little 4x4 study that I did. I just love the sailboats on the intracoastal waterway. I didn't get nearly enough time on HHI. I didn't even see the beach there!

Wow, finally back in the saddle at the easel. Well, sort of. I'm very much looking forward to getting life pulled back together here in Singapore. While I was in the US my husband moved us out of temporary housing into our regular apartment. I've decided that having packers pack your things is great, until they unpack. Because they insist on unpacking for damage and insurance purposes. So instead of being able to ignore certain boxes pushed against a wall, I walked into a house that had piles of stuff all over. My husband did a fantastic job of starting the process of getting settled in, but he's been working 7 days a week. So in the meantime, I get to walk in circles putting away piles of things ;)...
