Something Different

I am not sure where this one came from, but I know it is a one time venture. The orange sections are cloth, which was fun to do. The faces are African masks. I am still seeking the next new thing.

Still Waiting

Still looking for my muse. Where is she? So, in the meantime, here is an image of a painting done last summer at the Burridge Mentor Workshop.

Where's My Muse?

I have been having a difficult time getting back into creating since my surgery. I have not gone so long without painting regularly for years. So, today I decided to try something different. I am tearing paper into little pieces and creating collages of cups and hearts. It is a lot of fun and really, really messy. I have medium all over my hands, so every piece of paper sticks to me as I am trying to place it. I will probably start painting again just to stop making such a mess. I will post a picture of one of these collages when I get them finished and photographed.

When I get stuck like this, it is usually because I am ready to do something new and have not decided what it is yet. Tomorrow is the experimental painters group at my house, so hopefully something will inspire me during that.

Art Collector

I had a lovely experience yesterday that I want to share. The above vessel painting was sold at Parklane Gallery to a woman who has been collecting my art almost as long as I have been selling it. She bought the first painting in 2002. Since then she has purchased several more paintings, and the interesting thing is that the subject matter of the paintings is all over the place. Her first purchases were small abstracts. Since then she has purchased still lifes and a figurative piece. There is at least one other customer who has more of my paintings, but this collector has bought them over such a long period and because of the varied subject matter, appears to be a true collector of my work. It does not appear to matter to her what the subject is. Unfortunately, as far as I can remember, I have never met her. Thank you Geraldine.
