These were meant to be breakfast, but they got painted first. We went shopping yesterday and found the markets just bursting with beautful things, and no wonder -- the hot weather has accelerated and also compressed the growing and ripening process, so that Quebec strawberries are still coming just as peaches and corn are beginning to be available. It seems a bit bizarre.
When I was eating my breakfast at home today, I was visited by a very fine neighborhood cat, no doubt the one who's been digging in my planter-boxes...
At the studio I'm about to start work on a new print. And I've uploaded some new things to the shop this week, including a small handmade journal/sketchbook. All of this feels like a big venture into the unknown, so different from a physical gallery, but I was gratified to see there had been many visitors - mainly from this blog and FB -- and delighted to sell four things in the past week, which, along with the blog re-design and your kind and helpful comments, was enormously heartening!
I've lightened the blog background and hope it's sufficient. Please let me know.
Bon fin de semaine, everyone, or as a lot of people say here: bon weekend! My sympathy to all my friends in London -- and please write about it!
