Where's the Party?


This one is a bit of an irregular size because I cut a 16x16in. panel in half to make it. The other panel was exactly 8x16in., but this one, because of the width of the table saw blade, is 1/8th of an inch less than 8 inches tall. Let me know if you have any framing questions!

Tomorrow morning I fly to San Antonio for my next/last workshop of the year, and for next year too (did I mention I'm taking 2015 off from teaching?). After the workshop I'll be in Texas for an extra few days visiting my dearly missed friends and family! I'm ahead by a few paintings, but when/if I post will depend on how much fun I'm having. ; )

BTW, I still have a (smaller) pile of autographed books to give away to buyers. I apologize in advance that I won't be able to ship anything until I get back from Texas (Nov. 21).

Hello Carol.

I would like to thank you about your book. I preordered your book through Amazon and received it 3 day ago.

In the past 2 days, I spent my free time reading your book and I enjoyed every single page. Your book is the BEST investment that I ever made!! It is full of great tips and inspiration. I can see myself reading your book again and again. Thank you for sharing your experience and knowledge about painting.

I love the humour! They look like a bunch of teanagers whose party has just been busted by mum & dad. Of course the parents have to be lenient as the young cups are such beautiful colours.

Love the composition. I also want to thank you for writing your book! I'm in the process of studying it. You're a great teacher, Carol!

Holy smokes, Carol! I don't comment here often (ever?) but I stop by frequently to admire your work. I purchased your book on Amazon, pre-ordered about three months ago. I haven't had time or space to paint ...for about a year now :(, but I have just sat and read your book front to back and I am inspired, even if I have to paint in a closet...I cannot wait to pick up my brush again. Thanks for such an awesome book!

I love this painting: the colours, the unusual shape and the expectation created by these numerous mugs (what party? why? who's coming?). It's always a pleasure to come to your blog.
