Trying to get things done

Spring Break, 2008. oil on panel. 10 x 11. sold.

Do you ever have one of those days when you don't get anything done that you thought you were going to get done? I have stacks of paintings that I need to finish before the end of next week and yesterday I couldn't seem to any work done. For some reason I really didn't mind...

It must be the Season.

Happy Holidays everybody!

Back to it

Building Summer, 2008. oil on canvas 40 x 58 sold

We are finally back into our house. It's good to be home! We are still settling in and a few things still need to done but things seem to be getting back to normal ( at least a little bit). I think I might even get into my studio this week. ( a real shock, I know, it's been five or six weeks!) I'm ready...I have some work that I need to get started on for early next year.

In the meantime...

We had our reception for the miniature show at First Street last Friday. ( I organized the show for the gallery.) What a party! I think there was over two hundred people at the reception and sales were fairly strong. A grad time was has by all. It was great to see friends and meet new collectors. I'll write more soon...see ya then.

Oh, I guess I should mention this painting is another larger painting from my show. I kinda went old school on it...back to my classic style (can I even have a classic style?) of five or six years ago. Though I have to say I would have never painted the clouds the way I did in this painting six years ago...It was interesting to come back to some of the same color ideas again and see how I look at things differently now.
