Abandon Ship


Click Here to Bid

It is goooood to be back in the studio! I found a big bag of these little oranges at the grocery store today. I can't even begin to tell you how satisfying it is to start making orange marks all over the place and have it turn into a 3D pile of oranges.

A lot of you wrote in after my latest adventure, suggesting I cut back on workshops and hold them closer to home. This is exactly my plan. While I love teaching and adore all my kids, the transitions are rough on me, and the long flights are (apparently) dangerous. I am booked until the end of 2013, but after that I plan to find a space here in Eugene and do maybe 4 to 6 workshops a year. Thank you all for your concern!!

What a beautiful pile o fruit! I love all that reflected, refracted, reflexive orange. Wonderful to look at.

Glad you've also reflected, refracted, and reflexed about your future. Let the kids come to you. After all, Eugene is a nice place to visit.

I'm so happy to hear that you're feeling better, and SO glad that you're now a Eugenean. It just seems right! The oranges are cool!.

Welcome home.

YAY big bowl of oranges!!!! And Hurray for Carol being smart! I'm so, so happy to hear you're cutting back. You don't really have to wait, you know... get looking for a spot in Eugene - you deserve this.

Your painting is wonderful (as usual). I am going to start putting money away to help the Oregon economy in 2014. See you then!

One of my favorites, Carol! My grandmother had a bowl exactly like this one! She would make beautiful salads in it for special occasions! The oranges look delicious! And I would love to come to Eugene for a workshop!

If you build it (class studio); they will come...

cissy said...

That sounds like a super idea!! I look forward to that. Take care, stay well and happy painting.

Love all those oranges, just makes you happy looking at the painting.

Love all your oranges, both the fruit and the color. I'm so happy your feeling better and so glad you've decided to let them come to you.
Like Kevin Costner, you've built it and they will come. Your workshop participants will get to enjoy your beautiful work and instruction as well as your beautiful locale.

Carol, what a fantastic painting as usual! Each l'il orange has it's own "personality." I applaud your decision and hope that it will add years to your life, and life to your years! Your son will be able to meet all of your other "kids!" And Eugene (or wherever you hold your classes) will benefit tremendously!

You will have absolutely no problem filling your classes where you live; that being said, I am very grateful you have decided to come to Toronto after all :) Looking forward to meeting in person!
