Oil on canvas, 36x36
I realized with a jolt that I have shows the next four weekends. Yikes! What was I thinking?
In part, I think that since two are in April and two are in May, it just didn't hit me that they were consecutive. Also, I think I accepted all four shows during a stretch in which it seemed every show to which I applied had rejected me.
So I've been painting under pressure, and I have responded well to it, as usual. Painting while terrified seems to pull good stuff from me. I think it's because it forces me to focus, to push, and to paint without thought or regret.
THE AFOREMENTIONED SHOWS are:
- April 15-17, 4 Bridges Art Festival, Chattanooga, TN. I'll be in Booth 118
- April 23-24, Art Squared, Memphis, TN
- April 30-May 1, Arts in the Park, Richmond, VA
- May 7-8 - Crozet Arts and Crafts Festival, Crozet, VA. Booth T117.
Hope to see you at one!
Dog of the Day
I met these two in Petsmart in Virginia Beach last week. They live in Phoenix, and their human had just been laid off from a job she had had for decades. She always visited the California coast, she said, and decided to visit the Atlantic while she figured out what to do with her life. She was cheerful and philosophical, and I'm pretty sure she will end up doing something great.
A Final Thought
"I am seeking. I am striving. I am in it with all my heart."
