  rolling along
So far it's a pretty exciting summer in terms of painting sales...my Santa Fe gallery, Darnell Fine Art, has sold five in the past few weeks--four of the Column and Vertical series (including the one shown here) and one other. I also found out that a law firm in St. Louis just bought three older works through my gallery there, Boody Fine Arts.

I'm somewhere between amazed, delighted and slightly panicked...I need to send more paintings out West, while also keeping my other galleries supplied with new work. Already almost half of the initial shipment I sent to Santa Fe this spring has been sold, and I've gotten the rather urgent message to keep them coming.

I know that to maintain my integrity and standards I have to take my time--that there are limits to how fast I can produce my work. I believe that with great conviction. At the same time, I almost always experience a surge of ideas and energy when up against a deadline or other demand, and I've been able to ride that wave in the past. For now, so far, so good.

In other news, my two sons flew out on Tuesday for five weeks of vagabonding around Europe with backpacks and train passes. They're in London now, heading for Scotland, Ireland, France, Belgium and The Netherlands during July and early August. I had the kind of worries you'd expect from a mother as I helped them get ready to leave, but at this point I'm just envious! Or at least hoping for a little vicarious enjoyment if they keep in touch as they have promised to do...

Told ya! You find the right spot in Santa Fe and it's "Katie bar the door!" I remember the panic, the questions to self about integrity and the surge of energy. But hey! It's one heck of a ride... enjoy!
 
Thanks KJ...it's amazing to me that one smallish city can be such a huge art market, even one as charming and historic as Santa Fe. And while I'm not really convinced yet that this is more than an unusual spike of business...I certainly will enjoy and appreciate it for whatever it is.
 
Woo hoo........wonderful news Rebecca. Don't we all have this feeling...too many paintings, not enough paintings, etc. I have confidence you can do it.
 
Thanks, Cheryl, I do appreciate the vote of confidence!
 
That is so awesome Rebecca! I happened to be in Santa Fe today and wandered into Darnell Fine Art. It was so wonderful to see your paintings in person and they look amazing in the gallery! I recognized them immediately!
Santa Fe is a great art market, I'm hoping to get a gallery to represent me again. Keep up the great work!
 
Thanks Paula, I'd love to see the gallery myself! But it's nice to have a report like this. And they just sold another painting....
 
Wow - sounds like right place right time, hmm? Congrats on the sales.
