Well, I'm back from Sun Valley, Utah and Tucson - a week away from the tent was good for my head! I loved painting in Tucson, even if it was cactus, lol. I have actually started to really appreciate the beauty of the desert, for a mountain girl that is. The skies here are tremendous, the sunsets trump anywhere else! I met some really great people, all working artists and substantial in their own right and I really found a kindred spirit in my new friendship with Liz Robbins. She is such an amazing artist and person and it was so nice to meet up with someone so in tune with life experience and how that influences artistic life.
Four weeks left at the Celebration show and probably the most intense. Four weeks to make the best art that I possibly can - nothing intimidating there! I've picked up a couple of galleries after the show and looking for one more. I need to get the portfolio ready again, the bio updated, contacts made and the website updated. All in a few days work!

I've been painting up a storm the last few weeks and all with a nice and warm palette reflecting the beautiful weather here in Scottsdale! Now off to Sun Valley tomorrow and snow and maybe there will be snow paintings to follow :) The reception for the Kneeland Gallery show is Friday night 5-8. Please stop by if you are in the area!

Check out this link for my first online portfolio - please remember I'm a rookie!

Great News!

I found out today that two of my paintings were accepted into the Scottsdale Salon of Fine Art hosted by the Legacy Gallery in April! Yes, doing cartwheels out in the parking lot of the celebration :) Here is the Link if you would like to see the list of amazing artists chosen along with their artwork : I'm very happy that some of my "coworkers" here at the celebration are included in that list : Richard Hall, Jennifer O'Cualain, Josh Claire - all AMAZING!
I'm staying home from the tent today to work on some watercolors, do some cooking, a few loads of laundry, and investigate a few future shows and galleries that I might apply for - in other words, be on the computer most of the day! So what else is new? I would really like to pick up a couple of galleries to my repertoire. There are a few irons in the fire and alot of new work! It is so hard on one's emotional head to sell your own work seven days a week for three months so this day off will truly help me do some AA - attitude adjustment! Now off to research recipes for creative cooking :) Have a great day!
