moving work

Tomorrow, thirty pieces will relocate, either to the Rochester Public Library, or here. Rob, at 2nd Landing Gallery in Dover wants more, and larger pieces, but the larger pieces I want at the library.

Thirty pieces, in 4 different locations. And, this is going to happen in the rain. Fortunately, there are very few that will be damaged by a little water. That’s what trash bags are for when they aren’t being used for their prescribed purpose.

These are two-“Play That Funky Music” will come home, “Spontaneous Combustion” gets another round of exposure.

“Clear As Rain”, group show, Kittery Art Association

I included two very new larger watercolors in this show that have been very well-received. I wish I had a dollar for every time I said “thank you” last night for praise! Feels great!

Saturday openings, 4/26/14

Spring in New England means more than the awakening of tulip beds, and the disappearance of huge mounds of dirty snow. Galleries that close for the season of winter reopen with fresh vibrant work that is highly appreciated by those of us that have been deprived of someone else’s vision, in my case, or any clear vision, in the case of non-artists.

The George Marshall Store, featuring the work upstairs of the instructors at Sanctuary Arts in Eliot, Maine was incredibly well-attended! I got a chance to look at part of the show before I could no longer really look at it. It needs to be revisited though!

The crazy spring opening at the George Marshall Store, York, Maine-need to go back!!

Instead of Facebook :)-daily posts here!!

I seem to find myself daily telling my little FB world about my art-and I am certainly missing a much larger audience. So…I can always start here, and repost to FB.

Crazy, silly busy week-end in this area for art openings. The first that I attended was on Friday, for the Gallery at 100 Market, in Portsmouth, for their spring show. I have two pieces in this show.
