Happy New Year!
Glad to be entering a new year. The holiday season was a successful one for me with 2 outdoor shows, an indoor holiday show, and much broadcasting on social media. Truth be told, the social media efforts were exhausting and often feels like shooting in the dark.
Needless to say, no painting got done.
That is not to say that a lot of thought hasn't been going on as to what my next collection of paintings will be. Sometimes I am influenced by what sells, or if someone mentions a certain desire for something, or I see a captivating photo. Textures, a look or expression, color and
how I would paint them mull around for a long time in my mind. With the new year, I need to get some of this down on paper!
I currently have another commission for a painting that will be purchased as a large reproduction print. I think this is a great way for someone to get a large piece of art at a more affordable price, given its size. And of course the original painting will be available for sale as well. The last one was happily snapped up at the first outdoor show.
Boca Raton Fine Art Show in downtown Boca Raton is coming up in January as is Delray Beach at Old School Square (next to the Farmers Market) with the Delray Art League. My calendar is always on my website,
Exhibitions & Festivals
I spent 10 lovely days in Asheville, NC with my 2 sisters in early December. They arranged a snow storm for me and I loved it! I also did a bit of swing dancing...umpteen years since I'd done that! Because I love Asheville and think that some of my artwork would really do well there, I scouted around for opportunities for selling my work. Will see what develops!
Wishing all of you a healthy, happy and prosperous new year
Many thanks to all of you again and again.
