Bluejay feather and small copper pot

Today we're in a different house in Ajijic, Mexico, housesitting for an artist couple. I'm in heaven--art everywhere and a million art books and magazines...how awesome. I won't even have time to get through all the art magazines in the next five days...oh, how tragic and yet how heavenly!

I just painted a little still life to leave here for my hosts, but need to wait 'till tomorrow to photograph it when it's light outside (I always paint at night; I'm a night owl who only feels mentally awake at night). So in the meantime, here's one from October. I only realized about halfway through the painting that the shadow looks like some kind of Native American spirit figure (or something...you know what I'm getting at). Interesting.

I'm so happy for you that you're in 'artist heaven'! This is a beauty. A gorgeous composition, and the shadow IS mysterious! This is a gem.
