...to you!! I hope you had a lovely holiday season and ushered in the new year in a pleasing fashion! My season was awesome and I sold quite a few paintings...that always makes me happy! One of my goals for the new year is to "paint more and stress less". Doing one should naturally lead to the other so it will be win-win. Looking forward to hitting the studio after some holiday time off!
In the meantime...there are still two days left to get yourself over to the Kenton Family Wellness Center to see my paintings that are hanging there. I will be taking the show down this Saturday, so if you are over that way...do pop in! ( 8315 N Denver Ave.)
Also, the Big 400 is still hanging and still a sight to behold! It will be up till January 12, so go on down to check it out at The People's Art of Portland Gallery. (700 SW 5th Ave...third floor. Gallery hours are Thursday thru Sunday 12noon till 6pm) I've sold six out of ten so far, so there are still four of mine left if you are interested! Oh, here's a feel good Big 400 story: Went down to the show with a few friends who hadn't seen it yet. While we were there, (it takes a while to look at ALL the pieces) I got to witness a woman who had been there looking at all the art, actually PICK ONE OF MINE TO BUY!! I was thrilled, as you can imagine, and I was going to remain anonymous, but then she remarked to her friend, "I wonder how the artist did this?". Of course, I then had to speak up and come forward and explain the technique. I'm glad I did, it was a special moment to interact with a stranger who felt a connection to my work out of all the work there. We talked a bit, I thanked her and we parted. It feels pretty great knowing that piece has a great home.
Well, dear reader, let me again wish you all the best for 2014...I hope this new year brings you every happiness, as well as peace and health. And please do check in from time to time to see what I have been up to, art-wise, and don't be shy if you happen to see something you would like to have in your life. Peace.
