    I am happy to have gotten a few hours of painting in today, in spite of Everett not wanting to nap (I ended up doing lots of baby holding on one arm and painting with the other)! The best purchase I’ve made this year was a large freezer to store wet paintings. As a mom I don’t have the luxury of working straight through on a piece for hours and hours, so the freezer is a great solution. If I have to stop suddenly but want to keep working wet into wet, I can just stick my painting in the freezer and pull it out the next day or week... whenever I’m ready for it, and the paint will still be fresh. 🙌 This #autumnstilllife is 20x16”. Swipe left to see my palette at the end of the painting session. One of the colors I’m having fun with on this one is #sennelier Chinese Orange, and as always, I’m loving my @rosemarybrushes to get the job done.

On the Quest for "Mastery" and Being Stuck in a Chair
This week the American Masters Exhibition opens at the Salmagundi Club in NYC, and several of my dear friends are included in the show. I feel both happy for them, and somewhat introspective as I am being nudged to up my own game. Hopefully someday I'll be good enough to be included in a show of this caliber.I have been following with interest some lively discussions on social media about what it means to...
