Each winter I am honored with the opportunity to showcase my newest works with an emphasis on still life painting at Kneeland Gallery in Sun Valley, Idaho. I have been working all winter preparing for the gallery reception and exhibition which starts this Friday night, March 5th and runs through April 15th, 2010.
I thought my readers might enjoy seeing what I do when I am not blogging or ‘twittering’…and yes, I really do paint and do my best to practice what I preach! It is a challenge to juggle it all, especially when you throw in a few kids, dogs and a cat into the mix but, the rewards make it all worth the effort.
I like this quote I found the other day: “If you are irritated by every rub, how will you be polished?” ~Rumi
We all feel the ‘rub‘ especially when we feel the pressure to paint a great show. I hope all that ‘rubbing‘ has polished my artistic skills.
Below is a sampling of my newest still life paintings. Oh, and if you are in the area please stop by and say hi!
