The last few days, I was away in Tennessee, working on a portrait. It was a lot more than working on a portrait, however. I'm afraid words aren't the best vehicle to describe what can happen during a portrait sitting. Suffice it to say that if one is lucky, there is magic that gets somehow transmitted into and through the portrait. And so much more in between the artist, the sitter, the space and Spirit. Many thanks to Quentin and Annelle for sacred conversations, a most comfortable bed, wonderful foods and a wee dram or two in such a beautiful home.

Playing with fire...

Just playing around with the woodburner a bit as a markmaking tool... It smells terrible when it burns paint, but it's fun...

Cozy...

Well, we didn't get the snow that was predicted for today. In fact, once the clouds and drizzle moved on, it was a really beautiful, if cold, sunny day. It's been a while since I've seen the squirrels in their tree, and sometimes there are as many as four where you see two here. That maple tree makes a great home for their families. And the woodstove is a fine surrogate warm mommy for Sundew. She's the fist of the cats to think of getting up under it, and I wonder if she'll still squeeze in when she gets bigger....
