three short stories

"lapping ever-cautious (the foxgloves)"
8x10", Acrylic on Masonite

This is my first official "new" new piece for my solo show! The title of my show has been altered from the original name I chose, "The Language of Foxtrot," to "The Foxtrot Code." I just found out that shows at Space 242 must be RSVPd to (you can do that here), and I hope to see you there!! As I've mentioned before, Scott (show: Dirty Duality) and Ellen (show: Gramps & Scamps) are having solo shows at Space 242 the same night, so I reckon it will be really, really fun.
The scan for this painting came out so vibrant, but for some reason it uploaded to blogger pretty dull. If I find a way to fix that, I'll post the better image. 
Today I took my class to draw at the harbor with the Tall Ships parade coming in, but I somehow was misinformed of the time and only one clipper ship was there! But I've never seen a clipper ship in real life, and I love them so much, and (to me) it was worth it just to see the one. It was misting out and cloudy but not dark. It was really refreshing compared to Monday's very hot and sunny class in the Public Gardens and all the rainy weather we've been having on other days.
I hope you've all been having a nice week!
Love, me
