Like it or not, the ebb and flow is a part of life. There are periods of great productivity and those of repose. You see, I always wish to be at the easel - all the time, every day. However, autumn is a time that requires more domestic work, in the yard, preparing the home for winter, etc. We also had a wonderful trip to see our sons in San Francisco. Needless to say, I am itching to paint! However, the flow is always there even if I am not physically standing at the easel. I just found out that my painting "Young Man d'apres Matrix" received the Frank J. Bockhoff Memorial Award at "Watercolor Ohio 2008". This annual exhibit sponsored by The Ohio Watercolor Society just opened at the Riffe Gallery (The Ohio Arts Council Gallery) located in downtown Columbus, Ohio. There is a multitude of wonderful paintings and visual stimulation! Please visit Riffe Gallery for directions and hours. It is a wonderful way to spend the day.
