Tuesday was my birthday, not saying how old I am! Let’s just say I’m not a Spring chicken anymore! Not a winter chicken either, but somewhere in between. They say age is just a number and I live by that mantra! I’m enjoying my life more now than at any other time in my life. I haven’t spent much time in the studio this week, we went for a ride on the Sandia Tramway on Tuesday evening and have been sleeping in everyday. It IS my week after all!
Current work in progress, 24 x 30″ oil on canvas
I have done a bit more painting on my current work in progress. This is a larger canvas than I’ve been painting lately. A friend gave me the canvas and so I figured I may as well put it to good use (Thanks Stephanie!). This one is an 24 x 30″ oil on canvas. (Darn it! I just cut my finger on the tape measure!) It’s getting very close to completion!
I’m working on updating my portfolio and this means I have several older paintings to clear out of my studio. Check out my Etsy shop for some really great sale prices on some great art! 😉 I will be adding more paintings in the coming days and weeks.
Today I will start my next painting video! I’m working on a series of 12 x 12″ oils on canvas that will be made into a video series. Each painting will be named after a song on our Sunlight CD, Life is Good. The corresponding song will provide the background music for the video as well. I hope you will check back in with my blog, or better yet, subscribe so you can get an email when I post the next video!
Speaking of Sunlight, we have jumped back into playing live shows again after a 2 year hiatus for recording. This weekend we are playing a house concert at our own house in Albuquerque. Our friend, Alison Reynolds, is coming up from Las Cruces to play a set and some songs with Sunlight! On November 12th we are playing in Austin, Texas at the Carousel Lounge! Our first gig in Austin, so exciting! In December, we are traveling to Arizona and have shows in both Phoenix and Tucson. Click the “live shows” link above to see where and when we are playing next! 🙂 Our next local show is December 14th in Rio Rancho. We hope to finish our 2nd album of original music by the beginning of 2017! Stay tuned for more and thank you for visiting my blog! 🙂

Here it is! Aaron and I recorded a video of one of our original songs last night. We are currently working on five original songs and having SUCH a good time! I hope you enjoy the song as much as we do!

…..To let everyone know I’m still alive, just SUPER busy!
Tomorrow is my Open Studio with my husband’s House Concert, Sunday and Monday I’ll be at an Arts & Crafts Show here in town, and next week we are looking for an (outside the house) office/studio space that my husband and I can share.
This has been a super busy week for personal reasons too, my youngest son graduated from Middle School yesterday! Where did the time go? My baby will be in high school in August! Plus this was my husband’s last week as a public school music teacher.
Also, this evening, my brother and his band will be in Albuquerque to play a gig and they always crash at our house when they are here.
Hopefully, next week I will get a chance to breathe for a minute or two before we start getting ready for our Denver trip. We leave on the 7th of June. I hope to meet a couple of my blog friends while I’m there (Cynthia and Mary?).
AND I can’t wait to see The Police concert on the 9th!!!! 🙂
The 10th is our 10th wedding anniversary, so we will spend the day up north of Fort Collins at Lake Watson. We were married there in an outdoor ceremony. For anyone that didn’t know, we lived in Colorado for four years while we attended college.
I apologize for the gap between postings, I will try to keep up with the blog to let everyone know what’s up!
