new painting, new book
I finished this painting last week and shipped to Darnell Fine Art
in Santa Fe, along with a few others, including some small paintings as requested by the gallery. Several of the paintings purchased from my show there were sent off to their owners, and sending replacements became a high priority for me--during a time I had imagined (sigh) would be a break. BUT lots of us these days go into high gear when there is an opportunity. I'm really happy about the sales and no doubt there will be a slower time not far ahead in which to relax.
The title of this painting is Garden Gate
(30"x30")--the rusty colors brought to mind the fenced in gardens on the edge of the Catalan village where I stayed last fall. In posting this, I realize that I haven't yet had a blog post about the newest book
of my paintings.
It's a small book (7"x7", 40 pages) about the three weeks last September that I spent as an artist in residence at the Centre d"Art I Natura in Catalonia, Spain, and the work that that came out of that experience. It's available through me (email me at firstname.lastname@example.org) for $15 (that includes S/H) or through blurb.com.
