And just so you know these paintings don’t always just go to art fairs and in galleries, I love the opportunity to show online also! I don’t have to consider the distance I have to transport or mail it, or the take-in/out schedule. I entered a couple paintings in the Art Room Gallery ‘Shades of Gray’ show, and not only had one accepted, but won a merit award.
I was recently invited to join Alessandro Berni gallery for representation in their online gallery. In the last few days we dotted the is and crossed the ts and this morning I was one of the new artists introduced in their mailing.
I’ve been rather remiss about posting newer works. This one is not-newer enough to have been hanging in the BAI before I got to posting it. I’ve been posting more on Instagram (#skyscapesforthesoul), but would like to post more consistently across platforms. If anyone has a great recommendation for a tool to allow you to do this, I’m all ears. I’ve heard of ‘hootsuite’, but would rather have a one-time purchase than a monthly subscription that they’re asking for.
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.
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.
I was blessed with the help from a friend from Chaparral Artists – Nancy Miehle, who offered to take work in for me to the show, to save me a trip last week. Last Saturday I had been gallery sitting at 29Palms Art Gallery and on the way home stopped at Rainbow Stew to see the Chaparral Artists‘ judged show, that Rainbow Stew hosts in the central gallery. There were three categories “The Hand of Man”, “Nature’s Kaleidoscope” and “Beautiful Creatures”. It wasn’t a huge show, but I was delighted to find that both Nancy and I had won ribbons!
