A rose by any other name...

      'Tis but thy name that is my enemy;
      Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
      What's Montague? it is nor hand, nor foot,
      Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
      Belonging to a man. O, be some other name!
      What's in a name? that which we call a rose
      By any other name would smell as sweet;
      So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call'd,
      Retain that dear perfection which he owes
      Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name,
      And for that name which is no part of thee
      Take all myself.

- Shakespeare

Week 2 at the Neville Public Museum

Here is the painting I did yesterday as artist-in-residence at the Neville Public Museum in Green Bay, WI. I'm enjoying a new space they created for artists of all kinds called Museum Place. It's in a large space right behind the main desk. I worked from a photo during my time at the museum, then brought the painting home for some final minor adjustments. What will I work on next week?

More News!

I'm happy to announce that I have been selected as an artist-in-residence to paint live every Tuesday afternoon at the Neville Public Museum in Green Bay, WI, until the end of October. I expect to be painting portraits from live models for the most part, but will also fill in with still life paintings and demos from photos. If you are available on a Tuesday afternoon from noon-5pm, and would be interested in sitting for me, please contact me. This is the first painting I did last week of my husband, Chuck. It's called "Howdy Ma'am."

You Are Invited!

You are invited to a reception featuring the art of Chuck and Kathleen Eaton. The reception will be held this Friday, July 13, from 5-8pm at Gallery 3, 2402 Franklin St, Manitowoc, WI. If you can't be there on Friday, our works will be on display there until the end of the month. Regular gallery hours are Friday-Saturday-Sunday from noon-5pm, or any time by appointment.
