A Busy Week

Sunset Stream
30 x 30 oil on linen
Sold

Finally, after several months of puttering around with this painting, I finished it and shipped it off to Chicago. I'm happy with the final result and the presentation in the frame (although this image is blurry- low light and an unsteady hand). My dealer called to say he had put it in the big front window of the gallery.

In the midst of finishing up a commission and working with my online classes, I received an invitation to exhibit in a show at Blackheath Gallery in London! The catch is that the show opens at the end of April and they want six (thankfully, small) pieces. I am very happy about this opportunity to show my work in the UK. I had somehow managed to run completely out of my favorite linen, but a new roll arrived yesterday so I've prepared my panels and will start to work this weekend on the pieces for the show. The next few weeks will be very hectic!

Thanks Casey and Jo Ann!

Thank you Diane- I appreciate that!

Hi Ed. Thanks- yes, it did arise out of an online connection. I got another gallery inquiry thru Facebook a week or so ago, so maybe this stuff does work..:)

Great pic!
Hey, try a beanbag for an unsteady hand. You can always find something to plonk it on in 10 seconds or less (back of a chair, lamp stand, etc), and it's way less hassle than a tripod.

This is the one that just sold in Chicago?
Great! Congratulations.
