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 should have done this last week, but sometimes things don’t get on a list…. anyway, these shows are still up for a few weeks left, so if you’re in the area, there’s still time to enjoy them.
The 29Palms Art Gallery has the Guild Summer show in the Main and Center Galleries, and in the West Gallery, Tim Warren and Ted Wright in a 2-person show.
The 29 Palms Gallery is open Thursday-Sunday 11-3pm.
Here’s my monthly Mailing, this time the story of Spool!
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.
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!
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!
Having gotten to the point in life where I can order from the senior menu, I was eligible to enter the 55+ show “Visions: A gathering of Elders”, and this was it turned out the last time I was able to go to a gathering before the world imploded. True that people were observing precautions such as elbow bumps vs. handshakes, but otherwise it seems that the elder wisdom was the same as for having a bad cold. Don’t cough on people, and go home and feel sorry for yourself for two weeks.
Last weekend I was at the 29 Palms Art Gallery pretty much all weekend. On the Saturday we had an art fair during the day and in the evening was the reception for the Membership Show, which was a judged show.
