Transformation 39

Number 39 and counting! I hope a picture really is worth a thousand words, because I don't know what else to say. I've been busy getting ready for the Capacity Inc. decorator showcase; I will be taking 10 framed pieces of work to Lexington on Friday. My wonderful daughter came over yesterday to help me frame them, and I don't know how I would have done it without her help. Have I mentioned how much I hate framing? I think I have, and now poor Caitlin is starting to understand why! I hope you enjoy this one!


  1. lovely striations...feels very geological and soothing... like sitting in a canyon.

    BAH framing... may we discover ways to do without it...if we choose to...I paint on wood and unstretched canvas and love the look.

    Yesterday I saw a cool museum show where the 20 or more works, all oil on heavy (say 400lb) 36 x 24 inch paper, were mounted with tiny bulldog clips on the top edge, hanging free and looking stunning.

  2. Sharmon, this one I want!! Well, don't get your hopes up, but I still want it. Love it, this is my favorite of all of your pieces!

  3. I so agree with you, been using only gallery wrap canvas to ignore the whole issue!!!

  4. Absolutely stunning Sharmon! I find I am growing ever so fond of abstracts. This is great. Wishing you great success and sales in Lexington!

  5. Thank you, everyone, for the nice compliments, and for visiting my blog.

    Donna- I also feel this one is very geological. The earth soothes and centers me, and geology is a great interest of mine.

    Michael- Maybe we can work out a trade sometime.

    Caterina- Thanks so much for stopping by. I would love to ditch the whole framing thing, but since I work on paper, I'm not sure there's an alternative.

    Kathleen- I, too, am finding myself gravitating toward the more abstract pieces, which kind of surprises me. I used to work in a more realistic/surrealistic style, and even recently my work has always had realistic or semi-realistic elements. I guess I evolve slowly!


Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me. I'm happy to reply here, but may not always have time for individual emails.
