This Little Yellow Bowl has been hanging around the house for years. I actually was cleaning things out of the closet and getting things together to give to Goodwill. This Little Yellow bowl, along with a number of other pieces that I had made while taking pottery lessons, were sitting on the ledge. Its shape and color was so simple ,yet refined. I loved the thickness and non-perfection of this piece. To say the least, it now has a permanent space in my home. Maybe its time to think about throwing pottery again?

A special Thank You to all who came out for the Pendleton Art Center's Final Friday art walk. The turn out for the Silent Auction was great. As always I enjoyed catching up with old friends and making new ones. If you missed last nights Walk many of us will be at the Essex Studio this coming Friday and Saturday from 6:00 to 11:00PM. Many of the artist are gearing up for the Holidays with special offers and new pieces. Hope to see you there. Further information concerning upcoming art walks at either Essex Studio's or The Pendleton Art Center is available at:
Looking forward to your visit!
"The Field" is a 16"x20" oil painting. In the country around Cincinnati the fields are full of wild flowers during the summer. The colors of these flowers seem to come from every combination on the Color Wheel. Only if my garden would look so wonderful.
I have even tried gathering seeds in the fall and dispersing them in a few beds. The only luck I had was with Queen Ann's Lace, And the tall Joe Pye weed. I'm letting them reseed on their own this year and hope for better luck in the spring.
