Fruit Paintings from the past

I have not had much time to paint since we made the move to MI.  I am busy with doing things for the house and also doing things for family.  For that reason I am posting paintings that I have done in the past.  I am considering doing new versions of these paintings in the future.  I think they will show well here in MI.  Here are some of what I call my "Tootie Frootie" collection.
"Berries and Blossoms"
"Geometric Fruit"
"Red Delicious"

"Yellow and Green Fruit"
I want to mention that all of these paintings have been sold.

I have a small painting project that I hope to work on in my spare time.  It is an ostrich egg that I plan to decorate with a colorful abstract design.  I'll post a photo when I get it done.

New Logo on Black Background

I spent some time on the computer this morning putting my new logo on a black background.  I wanted to add it under the southwest saguaro logo but have no idea how to do that.  It is soooo long since I set up this blog that I have forgotten how to do anything except new posts.  I am afraid to fool around with it for fear I may delete the whole thing.  So, I decided to just post the black background version here.   I wish I had more tech knowledge to add it to the top of the page but until I can find someone to help me, this is the best I can do.  Here it is:
I love the way it looks on black and wish I could afford to print my business cards with the black background but it would use up too much black ink.

New Business Card and Other Things

It is four weeks since our move to Michigan.  Everyday is full of things to do.  We are working on projects around the house both big and small. We have contracted to have a re-do of the kitchen which may take a couple of months to get done.  We have to tile the kitchen floor before the new island and cabinets are installed.  We are currently working on making the master closet more efficient.  This involves many trips to Home Depot and Menard's which is also a home improvement store,  Making choices of flooring and paint and the counter top and many other decisions takes time and thought.  Anyway, between doing all of this we have interaction with family members everyday. I also made time to work on a new business card.  I did a painting of the tree I did a sketch of that I mentioned in my last post but I was not happy with it. That meant coming up with another idea and doing another painting.  I tried a tree in full bloom done in a patchwork fashion.  I liked the way it turned out so I designed a business card using it as the focal point.  Here is what I came up with.
After I unpacked the paintings I brought with me I invited family members to choose what they liked as a gift from me.  Here are the paintings that I gave away.

I still have a few other family members who will choose a painting.  When they decide what they want I will post photos of their choices.

I have some painting projects I want to do for myself that I will be working on next.  I have some pieces of furniture that I decorated for the Arizona house that I will be using here but I want to change the color of part of the paintings to match my new decor.  I'll post before and after photos of what I do.

I am back!

It is over a month since my last post.  In that time we packed up our belongings from our Arizona house and made the move across country to our new home in Three Rivers, Michigan.  After more than two weeks here we finally have Internet and I am able to do a new post.

We are fairly well settled but still have many boxes to unpack.  It will probably take months for me to get my new workshop organized in the way I want it but in the mean time I hope to get a temporary area set up so I can soon get back to painting.

What I am posting today are the doodles I did while I was traveling here.  There is one cactus doodle that I had started before we left that I finished and the rest are ones I did while riding in the car on our trip.
I have been thinking of what logo I will put on my new business cards.  I am not sure I want to use the Surreal Saguaro that is at the top of this page that was what is on my Arizona cards.  I have been tossing around ideas and doing some preliminary sketches of a tree based on my Flamboyant Foliage painting. Here is a doodle I did using that idea.  If I decide on using it I will do a painting with much more detail to use as the template.  I guess I won't be able to make up my mind until I actually do the painting and see how it will look on the new business cards.  I'll post a photo when it is done. Here is the doodle.

I'm glad to be back online and in contact with all of you again.

My BIG News

I am a day late getting this news out but things are pretty hectic around here.  Our house sold and we will be moving in two weeks.  So much to do!  Twenty years of stuff to sort though and pack up, give away or throw away.

 Today is the day I pack up my work shop so needless to say there will be no painting for awhile.  This will probably be my last blog post until we arrive in Michigan.  The house we are moving to is a two story with a basement.  My new studio will be in the basement.  Right now I have a tiny work room so I look forward to having a large space. I will be sharing the area with my husband who is a stained glass artist but even so, we will both have a lot more room than we have here.

Once we are there and settled I will have to change my header on this blog to "Former Tucson Artist".  I will still paint some southwest art and have a collection called "Southwest in the Midwest."  I will also go back to my roots and paint some of the subject matter that I painted when I lived in Ohio which will be Amish inspired.  I'll continue to paint flowers and some abstract and will try painting quilt patterns.  My brain has been coming up with lots of new ideas.

  I'll be spending lots of time in my new basement studio during the long COLD winters.  I know, are we crazy to leave our beautiful Arizona home to head to the Midwest?  The bonus will be living close to family and I look forward to four seasons again.  Well.....maybe not snowy winters but at least we won't have to endure 100+ temps for months on end.  We may become snowbirds after the first winter....time will tell.

I hope to get involved in the Three Rivers art community as soon as possible after arriving. I know they have a great community art center.  There are lots of opportunities for artists and I plan to explore them all.

This is the first blog post that does not have a photo but I don't think you want to see a room full of packing boxes.  Speaking of which....it is time to get back to filling those boxes.

I'll be back in a few weeks when we are in our new home.  Bye for now.....Pam

"Indian Warrior"

I finished the painting of the Indian I was commissioned to do.  The challenge was to paint a Northern Plains Indian wearing a buckskin shirt that that  the clients own.  This shirt is over 100 years old and is an original Indian shirt.  Here is a photo of the shirt and one of the painting of the Indian.
I have BIG news which I will share on this blog tomorrow.  See you then!

SAAG Gallery Display

Here is my new display at the SAAG Gallery in Casas Adobe Plaza.  I have a double space for this session.  I am hoping to sell as much of my inventory as possible before we make the move to Michigan.  The "Meet the Artists" reception for the new session is this afternoon (July 18) from 4 to 6.  Summer hours for the gallery are Tuesday through Saturday from noon until 8.  If you would like a piece of my art now is the time to get it.  Please go to the gallery or contact me at rogpamd@msn.com.
