I was delighted to have both my submissions accepted into the 5th Annual Skies Art Exhibition with Fusion Art. Of course being a favorite subject of mine, I had to spend a lot of time looking at the other entries! Have a look yourself, there are some stunning paintings and photography in there.
If you ever don’t read the Cloud Appreciation Society newsletter when I repost them, this is the one to read. There is an amazing 10 minute video about what happens high in the atmosphere above electrical storms. It will definitely make me take a longer look at distant storms.
One of the most enjoyable emails I receive is the Cloud Appreciation Society, and here’s the latest. In this there’s a survey to ask if you think there should be a (I assume we’re talking international here) Cloud Appreciation Day. If we can have National Cupcake Eating Day, why not?
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 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 pleased to be accepted into the Grey Cube Gallery Skies show recently, with my refractured watercolor ‘Crimson Thread’. One of the things I’m enjoying about so many online shows is that it’s really practical for me to enter them! Enjoy the show!
It’s always my pleasure to pass along the Cloud Appreciation Society Newsletter. I’m looking forward to viewing some of the presentations available on their website about clouds! Hope you’ll enjoy them too.
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!
