I am in Phoenix for the summer. It was an ordeal to get here, I never thought the moving and packing would end, so I am happy to be getting settled. But with all of this upheaval I haven't gotten much painting done. I now realize looking at this blog that I have taken an unintended and unavoidable two month break from working on much art work. On the bright side I have been working on my animation. Next week I am planning on getting a membership to the Desert Botanical Garden and I am thinking I might make it a practice to paint over there. I have a lot of ideas of what I would like to do but not much time between child care and working on my animation. We will see. In the meantime here is a little ink and a larger gouache I did over at the entrance to the botanical garden last week.
