OK, pandemic has interrupted my life LONG ENOUGH! I am making a pact with myself, ART will come back to life now. I have never experienced such a 'downer' of a time - the daily irritation of poor leadership and corruption in this country is gone. I have my second Moderna vaccine under my belt by a month. Art venues are opening back up for the season. My 'trigger thumb' is getting well from that long break I have taken. No excuses, no holds barred - it's time!
I entered my first show for the season at the gallery. It is referred to as 'the calendar show' . An outside artist judges the art and chooses 13 suitable pieces to be printed into the yearly 'Sangres Art Guild' calendar. I didn't enter my pieces for that purpose, I entered them, just as a way of getting back INTO the groove. They are a few of last year's 30 in 30 Inktober/pen and ink pieces (see my sidebar for a postcard I made of them) but new to gallery EYES. Looking forward to a new beginning. More to come here on the blog, too!
Just finished and am shipping out today a pastel commission dog portrait. This was Bella - her owner's said goodbye to her earlier this winter.
