The divorce and living situation here is an absolute nightmare--financially, legally, emotionally. 

If it weren't for my beloved animolecules--whom The Husband is now trying to get rid of--I don't think I'd make it through a single day. As things are right now, it feels miraculous to get through a day.

And the difficulty is compounded for me because my best friend of more than a decade decided she didn't want to deal with me and my problems anymore--during the worst crisis of my life, when I am already losing so much. Impeccable timing for the end of a friendship, wouldn't you say?

 Cleo is usually a well-behaved girl in the studio. But the other day I discovered this on the floor:

Miss Lemon loves the springtime...

...she was sitting right in front of these tiny blue flowers and seemed to be admiring them.

Untitled 220

This is a pastel from a month or so ago. 

I've been in the studio a lot lately, working on a couple of Diebenkorn-esque "Ocean Park"-style pieces. They're on the biggest canvases I've ever worked on: 3' x 4'.  (Although that's not even close to Diebenkorn sizes.) I love working on the bigger canvases, it turns out. I hope to work even larger than 3' x 4' someday. 
It's funny, after I've spent a few hours working on one of the 3' x 4' ones, when I look around at the studio, the 30" x 40" recent paintings suddenly look very small to me!
