formed many acquaintances here yet. I did get to met several locals, local artists and a few collectors from Southern CA and the state of Washington, made a few sales. All in all it was a good experience. I am planning to do it again next year. Sometime in the Spring of '22, with Fred's help, I will add to the permanent display wall as I hope to have more artwork by then and will be short on hanging space.
Time now to pack up "Mary's Ginger" as it will be on it's way to The Big Island (Hawaii) soon, to its new home--or maybe old home, as that is where the photo originated back in ?? 2007.
Then--it is back to my list of commissions. This may take me until late 2022 to finish, but hopefully not that long. Along with--at the same time-- painting commissions, I will have a couple of other paintings set up so that when I need a break from one I can work on the other. It is surprising what can be accomplished in just 15 minutes or so on a regular basis. Since Winter may be here already--27 degrees again this AM and still around 54 degrees-- I may set up a space in the house instead of the studio as a small heater takes quite a while to heat the studio--yet to be decided.
I am still not a blogger, but maybe I will improve in the future if , like painting, I practice, practice, practice!
I had no intention of blogging this morning, but wanted to add to my contact information. I have been overrun with scammers on my phone who have no ending to the amount of numbers they call from and I have been blocking about 4-5 per day. I then realized I had posted my phone number in several contact areas, plus my website and may have inadvertently blocked an inquiry. So--best way to contact me is by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you if you got this far! LOL
