We had sad news this week, when my father passed away at the age of 88 in Denver. My 3 siblings and I are hanging together in full support-each-other mode. Still, the business of running an art studio goes on, and I shipped a painting to a nice lady in Montana today.
As I was going through the painting images I came across this one which was part of the art in a calendar I had made called City Dreams. It reminded me of other happier moments in life, like travels to Mexico with family.
I told my sister that when I paint buildings and cities, I always imagine which window is my art studio window. There is definitely a painting studio in this Chili building, next to the Mexican restaurant. My friend Judy, who lives on Canyon Road in the Art Gallery district, has a restaurant next door, and El Farol is right up the street, where you can get tapas and listen to salsa music. More happy thoughts.
So many thoughts and memories can be triggered by an image like this one, called Seaside Village, which I shipped today. I wonder what my new collector lady will be thinking when she hangs the “Seaside Village” painting in her home? I hope it brings joy, peace and inspiration.
Thanks for reading, my friends.
