January 2016 Studio News
January has been a time of hunkering down in the studio and digging in to the creative “stuff” of my soul. I love this quiet, uninterrupted time, and it’s a great way to start off the year!
As I’ve promised myself, I’ve been getting out regularly to enjoy winter. We saw a pygmy owl in our yard a few times, so I was able to run out and get some photos. This painting was the result, called “Need. Food.” He (or she??) was so intent on watching the ground that it didn’t even mind me getting close for pictures! It is 18″ x 10″ and done in acrylic and ink.
I just received exciting news that I have been accepted to exhibit my work for the month of February 2017 at the E3 Convergence Gallery in Missoula. It will be a duo exhibit with Merle Ann Loman, a fantastic wildlife and nature photographer. You can see her work here http://www.amontanaview.com/
The Seeley-Swan Medical Center remodeled last year and decided to host local artists’ work on their walls for the patients and staff to enjoy. Three of my poppy paintings are participating. If you’re in that area, feel free to stop in and see the display. The staff won’t mind a bit!
I hope you all are having a WONderful start to your New Year, and if you have any special requests, feel free to drop me a note!
What exciting news. Congratulations!! I love the owl. Have you thought about posting a “Work in Progress”?
Thank you, Carmel! Well, I’ve certainly thought about posting in progress shots, but rarely remember except at the beginning of a new work. It’s one of those things that I *know* is a good idea but just don’t have it together enough to do yet lol! So many great ideas, so little time… 😀
