I'm back at work after almost a month off preparing for my show. I feel exhilarated. I'm persevering on a close-up I considered " too difficult". Now it has so many different colors and textures- the eye is especially intricate , a little planet all of its own. Reminds me of the view of the human eye I saw at the optometrist when my ex-husband's iris was injured with a fleck of metal debris- it looked like a small crater on Saturn. The fish eye is more psychedelic and definitely intact.
Tomorrow I pick up finishe giclees at the printers. The Fire of summer is lighting up every aspect of my life .

I'm getting ready for my show at the LightRoom , 2263 5th St.Berkeley, CA. from August 16th to Sept. 6th. The opening is Saturday August 21st from 2 to 5 p.m. Half of the show will be giclees- fine art prints of my original paintings- made by Rob Reiter, the owner of the LightRoom. The rest will be my original watercolor/ acrylics on paper. I've made two larger works- 22" x 30"- for the show. I'm excited to see them framed and in suspense about price increase since last time I had a large piece framed ! I cant wait to see two different sizes of the same work on the walls- I'm having smaller giclees made of the two new works. I'm pondering possibilities for next year's show. Several deadlines are coming up this summer so I'm gearing up on all fronts. I look forward to having a great time with you all, whether you are able to be there in person or in spirit. Enjoy the rest of the summer. We're waiting for fall here in San Francisco for our toasty weather !
