5 paintings in their foreverhome

I love seeing paintings in their ‘Foreverhome’ – brings closure to having sent your children out into the void, to see where they landed. One of my recent sales goes to a collector who now has a brood of five of my little ones, and he graced me with pictures of their new residence. His face really isn’t like that but as he ended up in one of the photos too, I gave him a little more anonymity!

Newer work #101

This is on one of the panels I cut when at my friend John Weidenhamer’s place (he has a great workshop) from some upcycled  kitchen panels.

A Forever home

Yes, it is possible to sell art during the pandemic.  A major collector saw one of my ‘Newer Work’ posts and decided to treat herself.  I’m not only blessed with the sale, but also the pic of the painting in its new Forever Home.  Although she says she might move things around.

The painting is called “Sky Comes Down”.

It contains the following haiku:
Sky comes down to us,
At every angle the rain
that might wash us clean.

Newer work #94

I love the desert rain when you can see it falling from a distance – sometimes the air below being so dry the rain never reaches the ground – the effect known as virga.

Etsy store

Thought I’d fill part of the void by putting a few more things up on my Etsy store.  The Folded Flamingo was created for a lesson for a class I was teaching a few years ago, a repeat of one of my earlier watercolors.

The strategy and battle

Newer Work #91

I have been hoarding artwork, not putting up ‘newer work’ posts because I’ve been keeping so many of the newer paintings for competition.  All those competitions are now postponed, except for the 55+ show where everyone’s work is now trapped inside the gallery for the duration.  And all art fairs cancelled through at least mid May. I also read this morning that the coronavirus can only live on cardboard for 1 day and plastic for 3, which means even if I were to be infected (I do not believe I am), I can still ship artwork and it is safe!  So, I might as well let you know what is available.
