Finally, my space is starting to feel like an art studio again. After a year and a half of false starts, my daily art practice is back. Now that I have a new gallery for a total of two, I have plenty of reasons to paint. I know we shouldn’t need a “reason” but somehow it does affect my productivity.
This painting is brand new, and designated for the new gallery. I think they will like it and be able to sell it.
Underwater World – Acrylic on Canvas, 24x36x1.5 inches
In addition, I had a surprise studio sale 3 weeks ago, to a person who had seen my work at the local art center. He had later looked at my website and wanted to know about this specific one, which had been hanging in my studio for quite a while, and though I will miss it, I’m excited that it’s found a new forever home:
Gentle Wind – Acrylic on Canvas, 48x36x.75 inches
And the new series of acrylics on paper that I’ve been working on still doesn’t have a name. Here’s another one of those:
New Series, #1 — Acrylic on 300# Arches with hand-deckled edge, 8×8 inches FOR SALE $100 – Contact me
And the cherry on top of this delicious sundae is the watercolor class I’m teaching. It’s been a great diversion and a way for me to stay disciplined at improving my skills. But the best part is that this group of women has really jelled and we are having a blast.
Art is not just part of my life now. It is my life.
