Always my pleasure to post the Cloud Appreciation Society newsletter. This one especially is one to dig into and see whether you can get your tongue round the word “cataractagenitus”.
May 1st I went over to Indio Senior Center and hung 21 paintings. Or more accurately, Nancy Vance, the community program administrator hung them after I opened boxes and set them out against the wall. And we put up the prices and signage and photographed the show. In 45 minutes. Talk about knowing what we’re doing!
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.
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.

Having been doing a lot of catch up (to where I should’ve been if I’d never gone) after returning, I forgot to put up a link to my Monthly Newsletter yesterday. So now you’re back at the office/gotten over the hangover, you can read it.
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.
