After a busy day taking care of administrative work for the new semester I took two paintings to the Hillcrest Center for the Arts in Thousand Oaks (Civic Center Drive Thousand Oaks, CA 91360) for a show there. I was last to arrive, so I got a sneak preview of everyone’s work for the show, which looks really good. There are some very successful pieces in this one, and I can see that the curators have gone out of their way to find some very good images.

I took two of my tarot card paintings along: Temperance and Justice.

I’m hurting to get back to the studio. I spent five minutes looking at the Traveler this morning after yoga, considering what the next task should be. I’m very satisfied with the progress I’ve made so far, but I want to bring the sun into the sky where I originally intended to, so the figure is gesturing toward the glory of the natural world.
