It pleases me beyond measure to know that in some city far away (Paris) is a Master of his profession working away for 15 hours a day and inspecting and checking even the most mundane details in order to turn out the best pastries, chocolates and caramels I've ever tasted.
I booked a trip to France before I knew I would be having knee replacement and really hope I can go on my trip. At least I have a solid incentive to get well.
So enjoy Adam's blog about Paris pastry and chocolate shops.
Here are three new paintings I've been working on recently. No titles yet. I have two more in the works and will post when they're done.
It's been a busy time around here lately. I'm scheduled for total knee replacement surgery on February 21st. There are a lot of things to do before hand too and I'm working on being prepared by exercising twice a day usually for a total of 45 minutes to an hour. I have the luxury of time to work on the muscles that will be needed to heal well. I'm also doing the same exercises that are done post-op. Everyone I talk to says moving and exercising are the main task after surgery. In fact, the doctor's office says 80% of the success is directly tied to the patient being motivated to doing the exercises.
I am a full time abstract artist living in the Pacific Northwest. I have lived in Oregon, Washington, Alaska and northern California. My favorite is the general Portland Oregon area.
I've been painting for a long time and currently I enjoy painting abstracted landscapes in vivid colors. Many of the paintings are done with acrylic and other mixed water media over a gilded canvas.
