Cure For A Case Of The Januaries - sold!



8"x8" oil on gessoed masonite artboard

"Nothing can cure the soul but the senses, just as nothing can cure the senses but the soul."
- Oscar Wilde


What are the dreaded 'Januaries' you might ask?? That post holiday exhaustion and the realization that winter is still going to be here for 3 more months. "Cure For A Case Of The Januaries" is an 8"x8" oil on gessoed masonite artboard.

I'm really enjoying these flowers this winter -they are really making me look forward to Spring (yes I know, it's a long way off). But while snow is swirling all around me outside, I can be warm and dry in my studio remembering what summer offered up last year. Hoping for this year in the garden to be even more bountiful. We've been going through the seed & plant catalogs looking for what we'd like to try this year. Ah, the joy of anticipation!



*****Upcoming shows - Here in CT: I'll be taking part in the Mystic Art Center's Members Exhibition which opens this Friday, January 14th, 5:30-7:30pm. Hope to see you there.

Makes me hungry for a slice of orange and for Spring to hurry along. Your blues are fantastic.

hehe- yes, after I painted this I cut up the rest of the orange & ate the whole thing! Glad you are liking the colors, I think I've had a bit of a break-through on these last two paintings! and that's a good feeling!

Thanks so much Norma! I'm having a blast with these flowers! I hope my flower stash holds up through the length of the storm (don't think I'll be getting out soon to get new ones)! This was another really fun one!

Mmm, citrus! So very January--and the good part of it! Lily brought a grapefruit to work and it smelled so good. I definitely want to make that citrus tart from Granny's magazine. (: I love the colors in this; it's definitely a cheerer-upper. :D

Hi Chels, oh yeah, that citrus tart recipe! Was that Southern Living (Jan. issue?) I hope I can find it at Borders when we're able to dig out in a couple days. If you make it, let me know how it tastes- that WOULD be another cure for the Januaries. Glad you like this one!
