Some News
I have told just a few of my collectors this, but I wanted to let you know that I injured my knee two weeks ago. Not being able to paint (or go running and to my favorite Zumba class) is always difficult, but I am doing much better now! The head of UPenn Sports Medicine ordered an MRI for me for next week to make sure there are no tears, so after that I can begin a more active recovery. Please send positive thoughts that I won't need surgery! : )

In other news, my Nov. 8-9 Peto Museum workshop is already more than half full. If you're thinking about it, register today to reserve your spot. I am also teaching in Yardley on September 13. After that, my next workshop will be May 18-22, 2015 in Sedona (save the date).

My recent Sedona Arts Center workshop was off-the-charts AMAZING. What an incredible group of painters! I am writing a couple of posts about that, along with my paintings from Arizona. I will also share some responses/testimonials from some of the fabulous workshop participants. Look for that next week. In the meantime, snapshots from the week are here.

Golden Series
Since I introduced the series in August 2012, I've been periodically making paintings that are part of what I refer to as my Golden Series. This is the third Golden Series painting I've done lately, although I am often thinking about the works by Dutch painters Rachel Ruysch, Caspar Netscher, and Abraham Mignon (all of which I studied at the Uffizi in Florence).
