Beautiful pieces from ancient Babylon, Egypt, Rome and China seen at the Nelson Atkins Museum in Kansas City last weekend. They have an eclectic collection that reminds me of delightful hours spent at the Metropolitan Museum in New York as a child.

Claire ( working )and her brother Declan came to my studio to paint. I asked them to bring some of their work, shown above.We all had a great time and want to do it again soon !

Here they are together. I love them both !

Then I repeated the same painting on canvas- I haven't painted on canvas in years. It was much easier than painting on paper and the bounce effect adds a kinetic dimension to the process. Great fun .

This is the finished painting .

New brushes with longer handles have inspired an explosion of expressive energy ! I have no idea what the next one will look like but I had a great time painting this one. Onward !
