CYCLES


After the last four months of preparing thirty paintings for my first solo exhibit, traveling to paintouts  and competitions, and holding a workshop, everything came to a welcome pause.  I could feel myself getting stronger as I planned and worked toward my goals.  Now, in the quiet of my studio, I realize the cycle begins again, and I'm wondering what's next? Where do I want to go with this now?

In most ways nothing has changed.  I want to paint better!  I've learned some things, and they're pointing the direction for me.  One thing leads to the next.  Design, color and paint handling are at the top of my list for exploration.  There are events coming up this fall that I need to prepare myself for, places I'll be going, things to do that I haven't done before.  Let the wheel turn!

Finished installing my show at the Corpus Christi Art Center, on Saturday. The show will be open to the public on Thursday, the fourth, and be up through June 29th. The reception will be Friday evening, June 6th from 5 to 7, and the gallery will remain open until 9 pm. Just heard from the Art Center that three paintings already have red dots! Santa Elena Sundown is one of them.
