Many of my recent oil paintings feature clouds. Artist friend Janice Wilke (right) and I are standing in front of "Henry and the Cloud" to the left, and "Sam: Head in the Clouds" to the right. I guess I have not yet outgrown that childhood fascination with cloud-gazing. This post is for the Photo Friday challenge, subject (you guessed it) "Clouds".

in our house is a variable and messy strata. Henry is truly in the world class of mess-makers. We have brooms and dustpans liberally scattered throughout the house in readiness for the next "incident". This one was relatively simple, he merely dumped out a tub of alphabet cookies (left over from Sunday's opening). The only added flourish was that he had obviously tromped back and forth over the spillage a few times, just for that extra je ne sais quoi!

So here are the before and after shots for my show "Only Human", which opened yesterday at the Manayunk Art Center. Many thanks to Meri (pictured), Rocio and Paul who helped me get the work on the walls!
I was surprised and delighted by the great turn-out, especially as I had only mailed off the invitation cards a couple of days before the opening! This was due (in part) to recent family emergencies (and the other part due to my habitual "last-minuteness"). Thanks to everyone who came by and/or helped in other ways: the support for this project has been just incredible.

This is from my recent trip home. I decided at the last
minute to take the train instead of drive. I gave up
a certain tension-filled autonomy for a kind of passive tranquility, but I decided that with all that was going
on, I needed the rest. So did others on the train, too.

LANDSCAPE WITH LANDSCAPE
I'm frantically getting ready for a one-person show, which is scheduled to be hung tomorrow: augh! I got a little behind schedule because of a recent out-of-state family crisis. Fortunately the last few days have been very hot and blindingly sunny: perfect speed-drying weather for paintings. Everyone else around here is cursing the sudden hot spell, while I am secretly giving thanks!
