In The Studio

New panels! This group of 18 panels includes five distinctly kidney shaped ones. I'm not really out of painting grounds yet, but the current crop of ongoing work has gone stale and overwrought. They are cowering in a pile in the back.

Words can't describe how exciting I find this work by Virginia Yount. Thanks for the link, Artnicks.

UPDATE: I just had the pleasure of meeting Virginia and viewing one of her paintings in person. Thanks to an unusual chain of events, along the lines of "friend's neighbor's daughter-in-law who happens to be in town this week", we met just five minutes from my house. I got to see the fabulous "Hasta La Vista".
