Here is another new painting, called Sola #2
, 42"x36" oil on panel, which I'll be shipping to Wilde Meyer Gallery
in Arizona next week. I am really fond of this one...I had the light blue panel painted and sitting around for months--it's very suggestive of clouds, and I love that, but I had to find an abstract context for it. The darker panels are all quite deep in their texture and layering, and seem to suggest an earthy foreground without being too literal.

I've been working hard to build up some inventory at Wilde Meyer, and also to show in a group exhibit at their Tucson location in January. And today I had word from my Santa Fe gallery, Darnell Fine Art,
that four of the paintings that were hanging in my small, unofficial show there were just sold--all to one person. (I thank you so much, Christopher from California!)
So studio demands continue, as does my gratitude for all of this rather amazing year. I don't mean that in just a material way...yes the money is nice and needed for many reasons...but since it is Thanksgiving I'm encouraged to think about this on another level. To have had my work so well received and appreciated is very touching somehow--to know that somehow, what I'm trying to communicate is being received.
