Ask and ye shall receive, Margret. And anyone else who was mentally asking for new images. 😉 Chances are there are always new-and-as-of-yet-unposted works at any given moment. Chances are also good that I am too lazy/busy (take your pick) to have posted them immediately.
I’ve been working in a bit of a reduced palette lately and incorporating more day scenery. I think I dig it but as always, I really need time to sit and stare at things for awhile before they soak in, even when they’re finished.
Other times, I know right away I love (or will love) a piece, and sometimes I love an image defiantly- in that I couldn’t care less if anyone else likes it or not, because I definitely do. “Tourist Trap” is one of those. It’s not something you’d see on a postcard of San Francisco… even though it’s an image of a place filled to the brim with trinkety crap such as said postcards. Which is kind of ironic? Or possibly I’m thinking of this ala Alanis Morrisette irony (which is to say the wrong usage of this word)… I’ll let the English teachers among you decide (I know you’re out there).
And then there are these little cuties, that have already been claimed. Sorry everyone else who isn’t my Aunt Kasey, friend Jill and collector Beth. 😀
That’s it for the itty bitty painting parade! Enjoy your long weekend. I’ll be sipping Sangria and- you guessed it- spending lots of time in the studio. 🙂

I’m a big fan of your tiny scapes on fence posts which you do so beautifully. But, as always, by the time I see them they are always snapped up! May I get on your “family and collectors” list so I can preview them first and get a fair crack at them? I’m dying to have some adorn my house….do you have any left at all, even from 2010 project? Thanks so much, I just love your work!
Hey Margret! I sometimes post “hey, look at this!” images on facebook and people call dibs. Now that I’m part of HANG Gallery, they get official first dibs on all my new art, but if you do use FB, you’re welcome to friend me for the most exclusive painting sneak peeks: https://www.facebook.com/mariannebland 🙂
