I am in Website Hell!

Currently working with to fix problems with their website hosting upgrade in order to get my website correctly published. I have been working on this all week. I miss painting! Hopefully, I will still know how to paint by the time I get through with IPower.
The links on the new website work and it is currently online. Take a look, get a laugh, hopefully things will be repaired soon.
I plan on staying in the studio and off the computer as soon as the upgrade is complete.

I am so excited and honored to have been selected as "Art of the Day" at This was part of the series of Lemon paintings I did around Christmas. They have been such a big hit, I will be painting more in the near future.
I have two new paintings finished and ready to put online, but the weather has not been good enough to get good quality pictures. I take pictures of my paintings outside in natural light. Hopefully, I will be able to do that tomorrow. The snow has stopped, but it will be 20-30 degrees and I don't know if my camera will be happy with that. One painting is a new version of Green Apple Martini---16" x 20", and a new 6" x 6" Pear painting (this time a golden yellow pear and red wine grapes.
Well, I had better get busy. So much to do.
Check out the "Art of the Day"--- I get to be famous for the day!
