Are you hot enough?!  our crazy heat wave continues here, in Greece..ugh and not easy to paint in this kind of weather.. but this ice cream challenge has been very inspiring.
Hope you're having a great summer.

follow the chocolate chip..

Finally back to normal!! This is my first artwork since..March? with all the packing and moving and being down and out... what a great feeling and accomplishment, to hold a paint brush again!
 Thank you Kristin, because really I owe it to you, getting myself back in the groove :))
This is what I came up with for the second week of ice cream inspiration.  Hope it puts a smile on your face, as it did mine, while I was painting :)  My muse is back!!!  Hello Daisy!  thanks for being a trooper! you deserve  some ice cream too!!

ice cream inspirations

As I write this post :) the temp in Athens is 100 degrees! yikes!! I really wish I was at the beach...sighh,  but this studio move is like a never ending soap opera.. I counted 55 boxes! and hopefully this Sunday, the movers are taking over.  gosh, get this thing out of way, finally!
Anyway..the big news this week is summer of colour, is back this year and the theme is ice cream inspirations. When I saw the picture Kristin posted, it reminded me of  a silk shibori fabric, I had created a couple of years ago and wear it as a beach cover up.
 I don't know if you all know this, I am originally a textile artist turned into mixed media by " accident" Lol. I was preparing to teach a class on fabric printing a few years ago and didn't want to waste silk fabric, so I did my testing on paper first and... I fell in love! so here I am.
I know that this atrwork wasn't prepared this week, but the colours were so sherbet looking that I had to share :)
ps. please forgive me for not responding to my comments right away, hopefully I will be back on track by next week :))

off to new beginings..

Boy, have I missed you my friend!! This studio move is taking much longer than I anticipated!! I must have packed over thirty boxes and thrown out who knows how much garbage..ughh I  AM SOOO EXHAUSTED!  the packing part is finally done, now it's moving time and hopefully I will be all done by the end of this week. I found so much stuff that I had forgotten I had, that was the fun part :) and made a good cleanup of old and expired dyes and paints.
What I'm really looking foward to now, is getting back to as normal as I can, starting with Kristin's " summer of colour"
Another great event I'm looking foward to is, Lynard Skynard are coming to Greece for a concert next Monday! I am sooo  thrilled!!
