"Sleeping with Fur"

Yesterday I went to San Antonio to join dozens of other artists at the Greenhouse Gallery where four nationally recognized artists were giving demos. The artists doing demos were: John Pototschnik, William J. Kalwick, Jr., Kathryn Stats and Darcie Peet.

I got lost and missed the morning demos, but was able to join Gaye Sekula and some of her artist friends for lunch. The afternoon demos by Kathryn Stats and Darcie Peet showed how differently successful artists approach their work. It turned out to be a day of synchronicity, meeting people whose work I'd recently become aware of and admire. The first was Susan Carlin ( and the second was Lorin Friesen (

Once home, I immediately pulled out my brushes and started the attached. I finished it this morning.


  1. Hi Connie,
    I like your style.
    Happy brushing.

  2. Connie! How fun to come across my name in your blog- I really enjoyed meeting you at EZ's that day with Gaye. Hope we'll cross paths again very soon.
