I was pleased to sell these new paintings to a local collector. Apparently social media is still working! She stumbled across my Facebook site a month ago and decided she needed some of my art. It was nice avoiding the shipping charges!
I was happy to hear this painting was sold through Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado. Typically I hear about sales when a check shows up in the mail… the rare time a trip to the mailbox is rewarding.

Thank you for joining me on my artistic journey. I am excited for new work and adventures in 2023!
In The Water
I was happy to hear that this little collection of paintings was sold through Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina. As an self employed artist I rely on art galleries around the country for sales. I sell my work directly to customers as well but it is the wonderful galleries I partner with that help me survive.
Do you do what you LOVE?
Some mornings I am in the groove, this has been a good one! I love spending my time painting, never thought I would be able to do this full time. Very grateful things have gone the way they have.
This photo was taken 5 weeks ago, much warmer days. Now I am wearing layers and a stocking cap in the studio. Acrylic paint dries much more slowly with these temperatures which is a benefit of the season!
Rainbow Clouds (studio)
This is a studio favorite. I have avoided the urge to ship it to any galleries thus far. Enjoy your weekend.
Color study giveaway!
November 1st I will have a drawing to giveaway this color study to one lucky subscriber on my Instagram account. I am considering doing this every month if it goes well. Subscription is 99¢ a month.
This is all an experiment. I have found making a living as an artist requires a lot of hustle and alternate income sources. I would love to hear from other artists… how do you make ends meet?
One Path (SOLD)
I was pleased to learn that this painting was sold through Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
It has been a tough financial year for the art business. I am super appreciative of the sales both direct to collectors and through the great galleries that represent me.
I framed this painting over Labor Day weekend. yesterday I boxed it up with two other pieces and shipped it to Wyoming. They will be arriving next Monday at Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson Hole.
Another summer has slipped away. It always breaks my heart. As the days get short and the weather becomes terrible I will spend even more time in the studio working… that is the silver lining.
