This is my studio standing alone on the fourth floor of the Codman Building. It's interesting to see the building as it was and as I am one of the last to leave, I've had a front row seat to the transformation. 4th Floor Artists hosted 13 Open Studios here that I know of and I participated in 12 of them. It was fantastic. I hope the people who live in these condos are as inspired by the energy of this old building as all the artists and Codman Lovers who've come and gone. This place rocked!

Another Praying Mantis? What are the odds of seeing three Praying Mantises in three weeks? The first in the new studio, the second at Codman and today I was in the dunes of Truro, painting with the Three Amigas, Kelley, Roz and Paula, when yet another Praying Mantis landed on my umbrella. Is this a sign? I'll post the painting on Just Painting when I finish it. Meanwhile here are the Three Amigas.

I'm not sure what the significance of a Praying Mantis is but when my nephew and I were sanding the floors in my new studio late at night, a Praying Mantis flew in the window and spent some time with us. We put him out side when we closed the screens. Last Friday I was at my Codman studio packing when this guy flew in the window and settled on the floor. I scooped him up with a piece of paper and set him on the windowsill where he remained late into the day, 'praying'. Later on before I left he was upside down 'praying' above my window. Is this a sign?
