Regrouping

Apparently my last blog and "rough couple of weeks" caused a commotion -  it's just life's bumps in the road --- nothing at all that can't be handled.  I'm delighted that people read the blog and checked in.  How great is that?  Great friends, great community, priceless.  What a new found pleasure to me for taking the time and energy to create a blog (insiders will say, and it's true, more work than one would imagine).  

I'm still working my way back to painting (artist block I guess. . .  don't have a good explanation) but really looking forward to seeing my great friend and fellow artist (KR) in Easton MD next weekend for a workshop hosted by Qiang Huang - check out the link, his work is stunning (we signed up almost a year ago!).  Will be quite a challenge for me shifting from 6x6 hard panels to a mushy soft canvas that are more than twice my comfort size. Okay, Alice get with the program! Maybe the shift will start a new commotion.  Fingers crossed.

Meanwhile, I'm going to auction a few of my most popular, favorite available paintings.  Here is the first one.  Over 600 hits vs. the last sold painting that had 135.  I read an article recently that said one of the worst mistakes an artist can make is to keep their favorite paintings --- aargh that is a hard pill, but nothing ventured, nothing gained.  So I'm taking the leap and making these lovelies affordable and available.

  1. Well, like Carol Marine said in an interview, when asked if she had any paintings she regretted selling, she said, "heck no, I don't paint 'em to keep 'em."
