I'm finally back to painting after a several week hiatus and it feels GOOD! Here's my entry for this week's Daily Paintworks Challenge.
I have numerous items of good news on the art front. One is the upcoming 11/11/11 event at Seattle Design Center is gathering steam as tickets are being sold at a respectable rate. I hear the show looks great and enthusiasm is high. If you are in the Seattle and interested in attending a fun event, check it out at http://www.communityartistsprogram.com/. There's even a video about the CAP program.
The second item of note is that Alki Arts in West Seattle had a record month in October. Alki Arts opened its doors during possibly the worst art market in recent history, but Diane and Tom, the owners, are doing such a good job and gaining such favor in the community that they just might make it. We all- artists and community members alike- are rooting for their continuing success.
The third item is about a tremendous opportunity that has come my way. My husband and I had just arrived in Ouray, Colorado when I got a phone call from the Edward Montgomery Fine Art Gallery in Carmel, California. He had seen my work online and wanted to talk about possible representation in his gallery. I checked out the gallery and it is very established and well located. The current situation is that I am sending him 6 small paintings and we'll see how they do. If all goes well, we'll try some larger paintings. What an opportunity! I'm very excited about the possibilities!
So- I'm motivated and challenged and excited and all those good things. Life is good....I'll keep you posted.
