Dear Yogis,

I am well into the self portrait.  I have had to paint it upside down so I don’t listen too much to the brain.  I am painting my face in blues and colours, so I know the result will be different, but I think I have the eyes and the mouth right – always a problem.

The background is a patchwork of tea bags, and behind that a patchwork of a print of the angels….I thought that someone might like to buy it or I might like to have it on cards, so it had to be different – not just like photograph.  It had to mirror my interests.  Teabags, paintings, sewing (boro), and so on.  I have the frame, although it will cost me about $80 to replace the ordinary glass for non-reflective glass…..  Thank goodness it is not a large painting.

I have so much work at the moment.  A commission for a painting (large painting I am going to do in three pieces) , an exhibition in my gallery will have to be in the next month or so – I have a number of ideas for this, which could be a tribute to Iris Apfel.  PLUS I do want to do an exhibition of scientific illustrations of bones.  So if you have any ex-husbands buried in your backyard, a skull and a pelvis would be good!  Otherwise, just bones.  Please drop them in and leave them at the front door preferably in a bag with a name of the animal (not attached please) and the name of the bone “sheep skull”, “rat skull”,  “racoon baculum” (Texas Toothpicks!) and so on.  The bones don’t have to be big (although I would like the skull of a great ape), just in good condition.  Thanks.
