Some recently sold and pieces currently on exhibit.
Oh May! The most beautiful, glorious, BUSY month around. Kids are busy with wrapping up school, bringing all the activities, parties, awards, games, etc. Show season is ramping up…submissions due and paintings to ship! Lots of spreadsheets around and lists reminding our family of five exactly what today entails. I try to take it one deadline at a time, one job, one “to-do.”
I had the pleasure of an invitation to “The Art on the Llano Estacado” at the very end of April in Lubbock, Texas at the Museum of Texas Tech. A wonderful weekend full of art, friendship, and more art! It is always delightful and insightful to meet new artists, view their work, and talk technique. It was especially wonderful to be amazingly pampered by the board of the Museum during the weekend’s activities. What a special affair they sponsor and the effort to honor the artists was unique and humbling. I was so excited to win a Patron’s Choice Award as well as have some paintings go home to new owners.
This next phase of the season has our family taking some much-needed down time and also gearing up for the IAPS convention and Pastelworld show in Albuquerque, NM. This will be my first convention to attend! I’m so looking forward to meeting and mingling with so many lovers of the pastel medium. I’ve heard many wonderful things about the event and am excited to soak up the New Mexico vibes and come home inspired and ready to paint! I have a full schedule of classes and demonstrations to attend, people to meet, and places to see. I can’t wait! But first…the last week of school is upon us! Wish us luck!
