Announcing My New Website!

                                                     White Cloth and Garlic, 24x18

Now that I am once again able to focus on painting after a lengthy hiatus, it was time not only to update my website, but for a whole new design as well which I am excited to share with you. Please check it out at juliemesserschmidt.com and let me know what you think!  

"White Cloth and Garlic" is one of my favorite recently completed pieces, so I chose it as the  home page image.

Sox On The Rocks

                                         Oil on Linen, 10 x 10

Just two weeks until the end of the baseball season.  As a die hard Red Sox fan, it has been a long summer, too long.  This time last year they were playing their way to a World Series Championship. This year they will have the honor of becoming the first major league team to go from worst (2012) to first to worst in three seasons!  The Sox really are on the rocks this year, so what is a fan to do but drown their sorrows with a favorite tipple?  I know my friend and fellow Red Sox fan enjoys the occasional martini, so this one's for you, Ruth.  Happy Birthday!   As for the Sox, there's always next year......
