Spring finally arrived this week in Napa after a very rainy and stormy three weeks of March. In like a lion, out like a lamb?
It seems so.
The last two days: eighty plus degrees. Break out the dresses and skirts. California heat has a way of bringing a resident to it's knees.
I was born and raised in California, lived for six years in Hawaii and back to California again. I have a bit of experience with this type of weather, but what I know for sure?
When someone points out how hot it is? The temperature goes up a degree.
All paintings for the I.Wolk and Ma(i)sonry galleries have been delivered.
I lie: all but two which are still waiting to dry and get gold leaf.
But, and here's the real reason for this post: With the more or less emptying out of my studio, some furniture movement this week and a new artist moving into the studio to make us a group of six, I took advantage of the energy and space and begun tackling one of the biggest and also most rewarding of projects: painting the studio floor!
This afternoon I also self diagnosed: painters shoulder.
I'll continue this floor painting project this week and post images soon.
