photos from santa fe
It's good to be home after a week in New Mexico to attend the opening of my solo show at Darnell Fine Art
in Santa Fe. Four sales there as of today (which is four more than I was counting on in these times) plus good comments and feedback. I've had an equal number of sales so far at my concurrent show in Columbia, MO (at Perlow Stevens Gallery.
So I'm feeling happy and relieved, and went grocery shopping today with a bit less anxiety than has been usual in the past few months! I really appreciate everyone who purchases my work, but I must especially thank the Albuquerque collector who bought six of the eight recent paintings sold. It was such a pleasure to meet him at the Santa Fe opening. Wonderful also to meet a number of other local artists and art collectors that night--everyone had interesting questions and comments, and it was a fun and painless couple of hours. (OK, not totally painless--high heels were probably not the best idea...)
We arrived home yesterday, after 20+ hours on the road. Today I dealt with the usual re-entry stuff, laundry, mail, unpacking and uploading photos. I also had a few hours in my studio where I started a bunch of small paintings, and worked a couple of larger ones toward completion. I enjoyed the sense of a fresh start, new work, new ideas, and it feels great to be home, however briefly (heading for Missouri on Friday for my other opening.)
