On the next windy day (we'll fly away)

Pastel, from just before India.

Finally feel well enough to get back in the studio. How I've missed it! (Though first I had to get over my "studio fear" after having been away for so long.)
Am currently excited about and working on a new series called "Jaipur," based on a palace visit there. A very different palette than the Chefchaouen series!

Paws up, ears up: he looks like a bunny here.

The Husband looking silly and cute, modeling some hand-spun and indigo-dyed folksy clothing. (The position is not random; he's imitating an Indian dance form.)

And some more pics from India:

Guarding his property in the Munnar mist, he was too busy even to acknowledge us walking by. (Sam, dog lover extraordinaire, this one's for you.)

This recent road cut was an abstract work of art in itself.

More art on my website:

Here's a haiku-and-a-half...

Blue is gone so on to the green.
Rumi is a fat bunny.
This Indian dance form includes a heretofore unseen right pinkie position.
Beautiful foggy doggy.
Photos prove the abstraction of life in India.

I feel the breeze of your painting in my face. Amazing.

So glad you are better, Jala. Looking forward to seeing the Jaipur series! As always, your photography of cats and (lately) India are awesome. ...and real treat!

Hi, Pam. Definitely some of my favorite colors, those teals.

Sam - "Rumi is a fat bunny." "Beautiful foggy doggy." Haaaahhahaah! Loved that, thanks.

Irina - Thank you, my abstract-lover friend!

Hi Diane - Thanks, but I guess you spoke too soon about my getting better. :(

Hi Liz - Don't let his cuteness fool you. He can be evil.
