Carrot Cake Cookies, Colon Cancer, and Company

Just put a batch of cake mix cookies in the oven, this will be the fastest blog post ever, when the timer rings, I'm off! Headed to Toledo today (an hour drive, not bad) to bring some home cooked soup, cookies and some company to a friend recovering from surgery for colon cancer, so there won't be much painting today! I painted the Tulips yesterday, even though it feels like winter out, my tulips are halfway up and the crocuses are blooming....makes me grateful to be healthy when I have friends who are not.....This week I will be very busy preparing my paintings for display as part of the Public Arts initiative in Perrysburg, Ohio, where I have been blessed to be asked to display my daily paintings. Also, I will be selling my fused glass creations at Artomatic 419, a really cool event in Toledo, Ohio where hundreds of artists take over empty warehouse buildings to display their wares. I love this event, as it in not juried , so everyone is there!! ok, minute warning bell on the cookie timer, posting tulips and I'm off! Have a great weekend all!


  1. These are beautiful! I love tulips and these are just such a lovely color. You are a sweet friend to take a treat to a friend:)

  2. Thanks Kathy! I do palette knife paintings on occassion, mostly when I know I can't do justice to something with brushstrokes, and I have not found (until now) a pink I like....This is Daniel Smith's quinocrodine pink, it's a transparent, which I'm drawn to all the transparents for some reason, they mix with white really well....
