"April is the cruelest month."
--T. S. Eliot (from Brainy Quotes)

I suppose you know what's coming.

Made Bed, Pensacola Beach, Or What I Saved, What I Didn't was not chosen by the juror for the Tucson Museum of Art's Arizona Biennial '11.

There 'tis. This is the 'not so great.' Thank you to everyone who offered such encouraging words and support. I still think it's a good piece and hope to find it a venue some time. Until then, onward.

There has been a painting, 8" x 8" (oil on artists board), that has been really driving me buggie. It just didn't have any oomph. I think I fixed it. Here is the photo of Edge of Sky.

The great news for our family is that Diego (as in, If-I-were-Frida-I'd-have-Diego-on-a-short-leash) has joined our pack. Well, Loki (the guy in the back) has him on the leash for now, and he'll be keeping an eye on him too.

I've missed you guys! Hope you're all happily busy and throwing some paint around.
