New Paintings & Busy-ness of Art

Unbelievable how busy things have gotten! Just back from one show and getting ready for two more and beginning my new 'Serenata' series while trying to figure out why Comcast has blocked my IP and black listed my account. This is not a fun thing... and it all started because I sent out too many invitations via email for my art show. I just want some decent help to get things resolved while not pulling all of my hair out. I also have taxes to get finished by next week. I am definitely busy and many of you have been asking where I've been... so that should give you a little insight. Nevertheless, I'm feeling great and the autumn air and beautiful skies are helping.

In the middle of all this flurry and hurry, I wanted to send a note of thanks again out to all of my fans, friends, collectors, family and clients. There are moments that bring me clarity and fill me with gratitude... I get so caught up in the busy-ness of life and work and keeping up with details and dreams that it's easy to lose perspective. Thankfully the moments of gratitude come frequently throughout each day for me... I feel so blessed to be able to create from my heart and share my work with all of you and that it is so appreciated by viewers. Thank you! Thank you!

Tonight I'll be attending artist John Folsom's opening at Pryor Fine Art. I'm not just a friend and contemporary of John's but a HUGE fan of his work. I can't say enough great things and I hope those of you in the area will all come out to check out his show and show your support! My next series is just underway entitled "Serenata". (More on the background for that exciting series coming in another post soon!)

In the meantime, I've posted images of two more of my latest paintings. The one above is "Patience" and "Apex", below, is currently at Stellers Gallery in Ponte Vedra Beach. This is my personal favorite from the series... This show opened last Friday night and has already received a lot of attention! I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your incredible support. Artists need you as much as you need them! :)

What a weekend!! Thanks to all who came out and showed your support at the Stellers Gallery opening of "Two Women" in Ponte Vedra Beach last Friday night. What a wonderful evening and celebration! My sincere thanks on behalf of the Donna Foundation for bidders of the auctioned painting of "Chiyu". I'm pleased to know that this painting will have a good home an
d will benefit the Donna Foundation 100%. I also want to thank my collectors from the weekend for adding such a stunning selection of "Currents" from my Earthshine series as an incredible installation in your gorgeous beach front home. I'm honored to know that my work is so cherished and placed in such lovely environments and locations. I'll be sure to post photos from the show as soon as I have them. There are some wonderful shots!

The next group show including my new work is coming up quickly in Savannah on Saturday, October 16th.

And... last, but not least, Hunter Kirkland Contemporary in Santa Fe is also hosting their Annual New Work Group Show on Friday, October 15th (5-7pm). I've sent new work out for this event and dearly wish I could be there for the celebration. Oh to be so many places at once would be fun... (and tiring I suppose!) In any case, I'm very proud of my new works and hope those of you in New Mexico will enjoy seeing my newest paintings in person and make the most of the evening in such a great southwestern city. The exhibition runs through November 8th, 2010.
