New Year! New Studio Space!! And...a New Commission!!!
2011 is off to a really great start with lots of news. This month my work is hanging in 4 venues..the new one being the Pacific Northwest Abstract Show at Gallery by The Bay in Stanwood. My new studio space is done!! All my canvases that have been stacked in the attic for years now have shelf space in the studio. Some are fresh canvases that never made it to the attic and were only stacked in the garage. Another new...a source of hand built canvases (see new foundations). And..now a two painting commission for my neighbors, Ed and Lynda Smith. They are off to Yuma so I have until April to get them done...no problema.
How exciting to have a mission!! Besides those two I can now begin to build up some inventory for the Studio Tour in May. I am going to make several more of the small squares like the Blue Heart series..just have to find their hearts before I can get started. Also have those great hand built canvases in some wonderful but smaller sizes!! I've got it all baby...lots of blank canvas, paint, time....and now a great new space that is so much better organized!!! Will it make a difference? My bet is that it will. My expectations are high for some really cool stuff coming out of that really cool space!
