April’s Monthly mailing

I thought April was going to be a quiet month, but it kind of exploded, as you can see in the Monthly Newsletter.

 

Curtains!

I have a number of images on Society6.com, which does on demand printing of images on a huge range of items.  They just added two – sheer and blackout curtains.  Not all the images I have are available on these two new products, but a few are.  Check them out!  And as usual if you have a favorite image of mine that you’d like to see on a particular product (maybe you can’t afford something for the wall but a tshirt or a mug would do) – let me know.

Here’s the skyscapes news for March.

A nice little surprise.

When I went to pick up my paintings yesterday from the Riverside County Fair – also the National Date Festival, I had a nice little surprise. Of the three paintings I entered, two came home with ribbons, and I came home with a nice little check.  ‘The Setting Sun’ had taken an honorable mention in the Theme of the year, non-traditional, and ‘Gentle Storm’ had taken first place in the same category.  Well, the theme of the year was clouds….

Two winners at the National Date Festival.  Oooh, look at that big fat bow.

The Journal

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.

A forever home.

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.

It just fits in perfectly with the two on the other sides.

 

 

 

Tales from the field #16

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.

Rainy weather over Sedona

My booth is on the row second from the right, with the white wall hanging out covering half of the front.

We were thinking tomorrow will be better, but I’ve just looked at the forecast.  <sigh>.
