Lovely Lily

Another in my pursuit of whites. Still not easy but still trying. I went out and bought a bouquet of these. They certainly fill the house with their fragrance.

I attended The Uptown Art Fair in Minneapolis this weekend. I admit it's been about 20 years since the last time because it gets so crowded that you can barely move. Saturday turned out to be overcast and a bit rainy at times which was perfect (for me) and the art was fantastic. I was encouraged by the amount of paintings in the show. The one that stood out for me was the work of A.E.London Her work of wild animals is stunning. These portraits are all filled with emotion and power and really capture the essence of the animal. I love discovering work like this.

We visited Minneapolis/St.Paul a few times and we LOVED the people and the art community. My son's name is Ramsey and I laughed when I saw Ramsey county on the map :)

I love the way you work with oils in a transparent and delicate way. Lovelylilly.
