Ouch, too early for a blog move?

Several of you contacted me about the moving of my blog, and I have to say thanks, because I was unaware of the impact! It's the RSS feed - I have my web designer looking into how to put an RSS feed on the new blog. So in the meantime, I'll post on both. If you want to see the few posts I did put up on the "Other Blog", you can click HERE.

This painting is a variation on a theme.

Cumulus clouds can be imposing harbingers of a storm, or delightful things which tell us of a beautiful day. Oddly diametrical, perhaps that is why I love them so much (they are so Yin and Yang . . .)

So this begs the question, is this a storm coming or going? For me, it's a storm leaving. Though not evident due to my ongoing camera issues, there is a lot of light, nearly transparent blue on the right side of this painting, bringing the feeling of cool, refreshing air after a storm has cleared out the summer humidity and heat.

I enjoyed creating "Passing Storm" so much that I wanted to revisit the idea and theme again.

I have this work set aside for the upcoming show "Inside / Out" which opens on March 09th at Artists' Gallery in Lambertville.

It's as yet Untitled (but will soon get a name), 18 x 18 oil on panel.

Happy New Year and Thank you everyone who follows this blog! I recently purchased computer software that allows me to update my own website and update things in "real time" not "web-designer time"! Even better is that the new software allows me to put the blog on my website - that just makes tooo much sense and it's so much easier for me.

So, If you've been reading or following this, all you need to do is click on the link below to see the "new and improved" blog:

Materese's New Blog

I finished the painting below and it's on the new blog, also there are some new entries and paintings you might like to read. The website has my about full collection of work, class schedules, etc., etc., etc. .

All my Best,
