"Carolina Blush"

I've just finished this 12" x 9" oil for The Southeastern Wildlife Expo that I'll be leaving for in another ten days.  I really like this piece - though I can see a few small things that need tweaking.  I don't rush into finishing a piece.  I put it on a low windowsill in the studio so I can see it as I walk by.  In a day or two I know if it's really finished or if I need to work on it a little more.   Funny but I hate deadlines - but I always seem to turn out my best work a week or two before a show when the pressure is really on.

As I write this, my brother-in-law is here working on my house as I'm getting ready to put it on the market; a very cute artist's cottage complete with studio and frame shop in Northern Arizona.  Email me if you're interested!  I'm well on my way towards my goal of returning to live in my native New Zealand.  But I will return to the U.S. for a few months every year to do some of the shows and to supply my galleries.
