Yellow Diamond

"Yellow Diamond" is a new Eurekan architectural I delivered today to Norberta Philbrook Gallery in Eureka Springs. Leslie and I, with my sister, Jo Ellen Logan, drove over on this very beautiful near-fall day and enjoyed lunch at a wonderful little restaurant named "Fresh." Ever had Cream of Parsnip and Anise Soup? Wow, what a treat. Absolutely perfect consistency and temperature, with an exotic flavor I've never tasted before. Must have been the anise.

We dropped the painting off before lunch, promising to return afterward to visit with Ron, who mans the shop on Sundays. When we returned, the painting was in on an easel in the front window awaiting the right buyer! See photo of Jo Ellen peering in below.

The tiny, multifaceted gem of a house is a delightful find, wedged at a tight fork in the road, one tyne going upward, the other downward, a la the wonderful world of Eureka. I photographed it a few times on previous visits, always intrigued by the curious juxtaposition of the little structure with its lacy, Victorian appointments, stained glass windows, and free-form garden and yard decor. It was begging to be painted!
