Got a phone call late today asking if I would be willing to have the show extended another week.  Oh gosh, let me think about that----Ye-e-e-s!!!  Two more pieces sold today, bringing the total up to 9. Needless to say I am thrilled.

show update

Tomorrow is the last day of my show,and so far, I have sold 7 pieces.  I am thrilled!   I have been getting a lot of feedback on one of the pieces.  It is the middle piece--a landscape--in the third picture of the last post.  This is the most recent piece I have made and people have been approving of the new direction my work is taking.  I guess it is a new direction,but I hadn't realized it.  I am being encouraged to explore this type of work further.  One lady even suggested that it is in the style of the Group of Seven.   ( I don't think she was under the influence, and have to acknowledge that is is a very sparse stylized landscape.)  At first the idea of making this a series blew me away, but having given it some thought, at least two more designs have come to mind that would stretch the design a little further.  Since the first one required four  large pieces of fabric to be painted, it may have to wait for warmer weather, as most of my painting is done outdoors.

This piece--the most expensive of the lot--was one of the ones sold.

The day is finally here!

My gallery show has been hung.  Now I wait two weeks and then go and pick them up.  Here are a couple of pictures. It looks quite sparse in the pictures,but it really isn't.
