I was accepted as the ‘Artist of the Quarter’ at The Journal – an online literary magazine. I had applied as both a poet and an artist and was accepted in some sense, for both, because of the poetry in my painting. Here’s the link to the issue that contains my interview, though it is accessible from the front page also.
Over the weekend I had the responsibility and delight of installing ‘Soft Light’ in its forever home. It now lives with Arline in Rancho Mirage.
Here’s the monthly what’s-happening-in-the-skyscape-world newsletter. Powerful storms! We certainly live in a wacky climate.
Last night I guided a small group through a paint and wine class at Vanguard Gallery in Moreno Valley. One of my students had already taken classes with me, including the Absolute Beginners class and was happy to work through this painting of winter solstice sunrise across the Salton Sea to hone some of the skills.
I just posted “Theme and Variations” on Society6.com this morning. You can now get this on quite a variety of items. I personally like it on the tote bag, though its shape is perfect for the clock and stools that they do.
Last month I put up variations on the “One Side” artwork in different languages. This Link should hopefully take you there, otherwise go to society6.com and search for ‘One Side’. It comes up among other unrelated images. If you like it but want it in your language, let me know. If you’re a fluent speaker on some of the non-English versions and I haven’t done a good job of the translation – let me know, I can fix it!
Let me know if you’re thinking about ordering anything from my Society6.com store – I frequently get discounts sent to me and would be happy to pass them along to you.
Well, it is sky, after all. That is my biggest inspiration. Set up in warm weather on Friday, regretting not having brought a pair of shorts and a tank top with me! But there were a few clouds around.
In the evening I was outside at the airbnb where I was staying in Cornville – about 25 mins drive to the south east. There were clouds and a beautiful double rainbow. At one point I thought there was a hint of a triple, which is a first-time-in-my-life experience for me. Unfortunately I was on the phone so didn’t catch the triple.
Today was a nice day until about 11am. Then we started with a steady drizzle. At about 2:30 it let up a little, enough to run to the restroom. From there I could see these clouds low between the mountains.
We were thinking tomorrow will be better, but I’ve just looked at the forecast. <sigh>.
First of three. These were painted together – small panels that would fit between doors in a hallway. However, I’ve hung them together in the booth and some people have considered they would make a nice triptych.
