This piece called "Mommy's a Wino," was done for the Willow Glen Foundation's wine tasting and auction. I figured since its a benefit for a foundation that supports kids and it was a wine tasting, this was more than appropriate...plus I know quite a few Mommy Winos! The event is November 8th at the Willow Glen Library, they'll be lots of wineries there for tastings, great food and lots to bid on!
I'm also working on some very small pieces for "tiny" an annual show of small works under $400. at Studio Gallery in San Francisco. My favorite so far is one called "I'll Show you Mine..." I'll leave that to your imagination! The show opens November 4th, and there is a reception also Sunday, November 8. For more info:

Yesterday, here in Northern California, a storm was coming in. I could smell it, feel it in the air and it felt good. There's something about rain that makes me just plain giddy. I'm no scientist but I've heard it has something to do with negative ions in the air. It works for me.
For some wacky reason I'm one of those people that gets shocked easily, I can't wear a watch, the battery just stops, I've blown out more kitchen appliances than I can count and wearing acrylic is simply out of the question; I become one of those lightening rod thingies in a glass globe and become, well, conductive. Its quite unpleasant. Electricity, I'm full of it. But when it rains, or its just about to, thats when I'm in my element, energetic and creative and in my own unbalanced way, balanced. So, I spent the better part of the day in my studio watching the storm come in and creating 4 new paintings. I was on a tear. Today the storm is in full force; its cold and dark with downed trees, and whistling winds...I love it.
