January in Arizona

In January I traveled to Arizona with my mother to visit my sister and her husband. While there we traveled from Tucson to stunning Sedona and on the Grand Canyon village. I can’t wait to carve out time to turn some of these images into paintings.

Good Dog Painting as Branding

I just ordered branded poly mailers for my Poshmark closet and incorporated artwork from my recently sold painting titled “Good Dog”. Can’t wait for them to arrive! I told in an earlier post of ordering branded shipping tape which also incorporated one of my paintings. I love the finished product and use the branded shipping tape whenever I can! I hope the mailers are just as fabulous!shipping artwork

Do-Overs

I have a box of canvases that are paintings that I started but never finished. Every so often I like to go back to this box and revisit the forgotten “bones” of a previous work to see where a fresh perspective might take it. Here are a couple that I completed this week and uploaded to Fine Art America so they could be converted into textiles or larger, framed reprints.

2017

With the close of 2017, I have to admit that the year for me was a mixed bag. While I could dwell for hours on all that went awry, like my fragrance allergies and my skin cancer diagnosis,  I will instead focus on what an amazing year 2017 was for me as an artist!

By the close of 2017 I estimate that I sold over 25 paintings during the year, one of which was sold to a private collector in Australia.  My debut in the land down under. We will see what 2018 brings, whatever that is, I’ll just keep swimming.IMG_7301
