Mixtiles

I hadn’t heard of Mixtiles until I was approached by them to have my artwork as available reproduction prints through their websites. Mixtiles says they’re ‘The easiest picture frame in the world’, and their frames come self stick, small sizes, so you can create a wall of small images – your own, or select from their curated artwork – or put one or two in a small space. We settled on 30 images to be available, and you can easily order a number of tiles from them to create an instant gallery. Of course I’m also going to give you a link to my page, but if you lose it, just look for Skyscapes For The Soul on their website.

Rainflowers commission

I recently was commissioned to recreate a version of ‘Rainflowers‘ in a larger size for a couple in Palm Desert. It was an odd size they needed, but I knew just where to go to get that made perfect – Jim Ciskowski at Blue Ribbon Art Support – he also makes wonderful cradle panels. We had the panel and painting created within a month, and I was delighted to be able to take it over and install it on Memorial Day. Here’s the painting, and in its forever home. Once I got in there, I totally understood the odd size, it needed to match their artwork on the other side of the tv!

Rainflowers II. Contains the words “Only the rain puts the color in the flowers”.
They might get swapped around, just for variation!

A friend will help you paint….

… a real friend will help you paint a body.

Cloud Appreciation Society

This Cloud Appreciation Society newsletter has an amazing video included in it! Storms and music. Awesome combination.

Seasons Show at Grey Cube Gallery

I was delighted to receive an email yesterday that let me know my submission to their ‘Seasons’ online show was included. I love the online shows as I’m able to enter some of my larger pieces that would otherwise not be shippable to a distant gallery.

Fusion Art Waterscapes

Was delighted to get an email yesterday that my painting ‘Wiest Lake’ was included in the Fusion Art Waterscapes online exhibition. Thank you Chris and Valerie Hoffman!

Cloud Appreciation Society Newsletter

I enjoy the Cloud Appreciation Society’s newsletter on a sporadic basis (when it turns up), but I’m also a member of one of the local Cloudspotter groups. Here in the low desert, we don’t get a lot of clouds, but a couple days ago we had some cooler damper weather and I was happy to not only be able to post a beautiful sunrise to the group, but for the fact that it was actually cloudy all day.

I made it into the news

One of my friends noticed that I was in the Hi Desert Star this week – one of the artists mentioned at the recent 29Palms Art Gallery Spring Faire a couple weeks ago.
