The Painting Blog

Started as a daily painting blog but this is easier to live with-
the once-in-a-while blog of a painter who also writes.

February 13 Ketchup

I wasn't really playing catch-up today. It was a real stay-on-schedule day: a speaking engagement in St. Cloud at 9:00, an interview in Little Falls at noon, sell tickets at the door for a local theatrical production at 6:45. In between, I made brownies, chatted with a couple of people on the phone, read a few pages of the next book club title on my kindle and did the daily painting.

The idea for this painting has been rattling around in my brain for a while. The tall format was perfect because I'm out of hardboard except in the 20" x 24" size and I wasn't up to that today. My hardboard cutter is out of town until tomorrow. This piece was laying around in my studio so I apologize for the non-standard size.

10" x 14" $440


  1. Did you ever pull a hard boiled egg down into a milk bottle? Do you think we could do the same thing with this tomato? It would look so magnificent and impossible-nice job, yet again, Nan in stimulating our imagination

  2. I can't believe how you keep up such a hectic schedule and come up with a good painting every time! BTW: Where did you speak and on what?

  3. My are on the go...and painting and everything else...very nice work once again!
