Goals for 2017

It’s been an odd few months around here; for some reason I’ve barely made it to the studio, and I can’t really put my finger on the reasons for that. I’ve got a bit of a rut going on; but I’ve just set a goal for next year — to do another minimum of 12 paintings, like I did the first year I had the art studio.

I was Skyping with one of my web clients the other day, while sitting on my living room couch, and she commented on how much she loved the paintings hanging behind my head. Hearing an internationally acclaimed artist saying my work was good — that’s motivational!

Anyway, I’m hoping to take a week or so off between Christmas and New Years, and I’m thinking it would be fun to bring a Thermos of hot chocolate to the studio and just hang out for the entire day, more than once.

Meanwhile, here are a few pieces I love, by my friend Lydia Knox. I’m hoping to try a few forests in a similar style to hers at some point. Both these paintings inspire me. You can see more of her work on her Facebook page.

Upcoming Juried Exhibition at Art On Main

I’m feeling excited and grateful – three of my paintings have been selected for the Art On Main 10th Anniversary Juried Competition, which will run at Art On Main during the month of September.
This will be my second time showing work at AOM – thanks for having me back!
