The Adventure Continues

Looking back I wonder how I had the guts to do it but I did!  I have applied for a solo gallery show at the Salmon Arm Community Gallery.  The wait list is long, up to 3 years but I felt I had to give it a try.  It took 3 months of working on my resume, artist statement and introductory letter, let alone picking out the paintings to include.

I learned a lot about myself and my art in the process and also about the wonderful community of artists I know. I had help from my painting buddy Wendy Mould, (www.artbywendy.com)  who has been incredible in giving me space on her blog and of her time to read my first attemps at writing a statement for a gallery proposal. My friends at the Blind Bay Painters group, especially Betty Schriver who wrote an amazing article about me, my art and the workshop I was teaching on May 19th. She made me look so good!!

It's given me the courage to keep on promoting myself and working on more paintings. One of my latest ones is 'Maple Green'. I can't seem to get away from the finger sculpting to make rocks.  I'm in love with the process. It really works for me.  I'm hoping to teach a class in 'Finger Sculpting' sometime in the fall. Life is definately getting busier.

I am also participating in an artist's co-op at the Reedman Gallery at the Blind Bay Hall from August 12 to September 5th.  If you are in the Shuswap area come down and see us. It's open Thursday to Saturday 10 am to 4 pm. Our grand opening is Saturday, August 13 from 10 am to 6 pm. 

Keep painting.
