Don't think I'm above using the same painting on two blogs, 'cause I'm not ;) This was painted for the Girls Just Wanna Paint monthly challenge and will also be posted there along with paintings with a 'telephone' theme done by some of my other 'gal pals'. We have a lot of fun at the monthly challenge 'meetings'. I had another painting in mind but because I needed good weather to paint it, it didn't happen. Spent the day in my studio and got two today!

Okay, I had to think up a clever title although I'm not sure tomatillos are ingredients in salsa. I'm also a huge Dancing With the Stars fan and Salsa, of course, is a Latin dance. I was hoping Mya and Dmitri would win but Donny Osmond took the mirror ball trophy last night! He was really good and his partner Kym Johnson is adorable and has never won before, but Mya really knows how to Salsa!

Always a wonderful time. Here are some shots of my visitors and my studio. Look closely at the Toyota Scion, ingeniously dressed as 'Toaster' by Holly Hamilton and Maggie MacLellen. See the plug resting on the hood and the little knob on the back to push the toast down? Love it!!!
Next photo is Katie May McElwain from Ipswich, a sweetheart artist I met through my blog , her daughter Claire and my bestest gal pal Kelley MacDonald and the well known pug, Paco, who has his own blog! Well, his mama writes it because his toenails are too long to type, but he's got plenty to say. It's a dog's life and one to envy!

SOLDFinally, I've done my Girl's Just Wanna Paint Challenge subject, Hot Sauce. It took me forever to compose my set up and then I wiped the first version of this and started over. Don came over to help me put up some shelves and I kind of pooped out after that, but when he left, I got my second wind and finished it. This one is for sale this weekend along with many 'oldies but goodies', for my usual Open Studios bargain prices.

Sally Dean and I did a demo in the lobby at a local school. That is that last time I was free to paint since I left right after that for New Hampshire to see my little boys, Ryan and Colin. It's Ryan's 6th birthday today, but the party was on Sunday. This is my demo which needs a tweak. The kids were great as usual. I've been tied up with yard work and Open Studios prep but I'll be painting soon!

Tishman Speyer Properties at 125 High Street in Boston, hosts an Artist of the Month show in their beautiful Atrium lobby. There are 20 paintings in this show which runs through November 28th. The building is only open to the public during business hours and not on weekends. Don and I hung the show and then went over to the North End for some wonderful food at Mother Anna's Restaurant. Hanover Street sparkled on a beautiful night in Boston with a full moon and no wind. It was fabulous.

I finished this and hung it in Boston yesterday with seven other 12x12's and twelve 6x6's. The show looks great and I am thrilled about the frames from kingofframe. I personally liked the unfinished version of this with all that cool pink showing but I didn't think I should quit there. So, there you have it. I'll post photos of the show tomorrow.
