One last Atelier Voyeuristic Peek

Prior to the Winter Solstice when the days were the shortest of this year, and I and probably you were running about attempting to be "in the spirit"and making the best use of ones time and energy, I stopped running and visited a studio of a fellow artist friend.  Jeanne was having an open studio, showing her work and place of work. Jeanne Echternach is a generous artist who lives in the southern end of Denver.  Her studio has superlative double views- one of the Rocky Mountain Range and the other of the skyline of Denver.
I recall when Jeanne began her dream of creating her studio and increasing her artistic output. She has done both, now let me show a few shots of her studio and some of the work in her studio.
Jeanne's paintings can be seen at her website and at The Framed Image Gallery in Denver and the Colorado Mountain Gallery in Georgetown, Colorado.

Balancing Act

This is the season when I can feel like I am trying to balance as delicately and precisely as the young woman in Picasso's "Acrobat on a Ball" ,1905.
It is the time of the Solstice the days are shorter and our/my lists are frequently longer. Today I have my feet poised before I go gliding off into the week BEFORE-- All the fun! For a little present look to the right side of this blog and check into the blog labeled "Rough Ideas". The artist Catherine White has found the energy to share her thoughts about Solstice in a drawings, and clay, for each day of the Solstice. I am inspired, which, of course - this season is about.
