on canyon road
Where I come from, you would not see a painting hanging on the outside of a gallery...I think it's great. That is my painting, Aura
, on the porch at Darnell Fine Art
Prior to the reception at 4pm on Thursday, I spent most of the day wandering up and down Canyon Road. I loved having no agenda--for the first time in years of visiting the galleries along this street, I was not scouting around, or checking them out or wondering if they would maybe, maybe, maybe give my work a chance. I could just enjoy the art and engage in conversation if I felt like it...very relaxing.
I made it to most of my favorite galleries, and admit (if it's not too tacky) that I felt a bit smug about the ones that have turned me down in the past. It's hard to be a really evolved soul when dealing with rejection and competition, that much is clear! Well, they always have their reasons when they say no, and since I'm really pleased with how things are at Darnell, I guess it was for the best.
