This drawing has been a few months in the making, I keep having interrupted work time. I think this piece benefited from my inattention, as I made some strange decisions with the color and pacing of the work. I just had a few lovely visitors in my studio, and I was absolutely thrilled that one of my visitors affiliated my work not only with that of Audrey Flack (a hero of mine) but also Dita von Teese and the "new burlesque" movement! It was a lovely read for a few works I have yet to put up here, but I thought I would share as I start to post the new work!

Why don't we go out into the garden and eat worms? A weed for you for exam time and crunch time in our too-cold New England Spring. This little plein air painting that had me focusing on the ground instead of the marvelous vistas of mostly urban landscape. A 20 minute weed of sorts, the little bugger grows next to the driveway and has come to dominate the grass. I am pleased with its speed and silliness. I hope to make more messy little paintings of our funny urban tundra.
