WOIA presents another event at the historic Athanaeum in downtown Indianapolis in conjunction with ReGeneration Indy a group of local artists that lead affordable art workshops and host Youth Art Shows. There will also be 5 youth artists on display during the opening show. If you happen to be in or near Indianapolis on April 7, please come by and check this out.
I have just started selling prints of my work on fineartamerica.com and as a new artist, I have an opportunity to sell ten prints of one of my best-loved paintings at a discounted price. Hope – A Tribute to Paris, available in an 8 x 10 canvas, sent right to your door for $50. Check this out:
I’m getting close to finishing this big boy: 30″ x 40″- another one inspired by New Orleans news anchor and photographer John Snell. I hope to have it ready for exhibit at Art of The Ages at The Athenaeum in downtown Indianapolis. The opening reception is tomorrow evening from 6:00-9:00. Come by and say hello!

I just finished and signed this 12 x 24″ acrylic on canvas. It’s from a photograph by Ohio artist and photographer Shannon Godby, who has generously given me his permission to use the photo for inspiration. It was fun experimenting with glaze.
This is the most recent update. I’m fairly pleased with it so far!
First Friday at the Raymond James Stutz Gallery downtown Indianapolis. The RED exhibit is an exploration of the artists’ perceptions of the color. I am honored to have been included in this juried exhibit. If you happen to be in Indianapolis this month, please check out the exhibit. There were some really great pieces (aside from my own). I am still waiting for the call that my painting sold for millions of dollars and I can quit my job and devote myself to art full-time. #RESIST
I’m excited to say that this painting was accepted for the upcoming RED exhibit at the Raymond James Stutz Gallery in Indianapolis. This my first juried exhibit, and my third exhibit at the Stutz Gallery in downtown Indianapolis. It will be for sale after the exhibit. If you’re in the area, come by on Friday, February 3rd. The address is 212 W. 10th St., Indianapolis IN 46202.
In keeping with my resolution to really focus on my art this year, I’ve tried a new approach to a painting, and I’m experimenting with glazing. I’m probably not doing it right, but I think it’s something that requires practice. I also signed up for a teaching course on the business side of being a professional artist. I’m hoping the investment is worthwhile and can get me more exposure, and of course, more sales. I’m hoping to have at least one of these three paintings in the Stutz exhibit for February, and I’ll have some of my art at Sacred Roots Midwifery and Birth Center for the next few months. Wish me luck.
I’ll keep you posted!
I’m full of creative ideas right now, and very excited about approaching painting in different ways. An old dear friend mentioned to me recently that she loves my abstract paintings more than any others. Most of the paintings I’ve done to sell or to give as gifts have been of landscapes that have special meaning to the recipient, but the ones that have been the most fun for me have been the abstracts. Here’s to a new year of painting! This is a work in progress inspired by a photograph by one of my favorite New Orleans photographers, John Snell, who has graciously given me permission to use his photographs. Check out his work. You will understand why people have a hard time leaving Louisiana.
Mini paintings make fantastic gifts. A little touch of original art that is reasonably priced and very transportable makes a unique statement that will add to the personal touches of someone’s home or office. Send me a favorite photograph of a flower, tree or landscape and I will create something just for you. At this point, I could not guarantee it would be ready before Christmas, but think about birthdays, Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, Mothers’ Day, Fathers’ Day, or the best of all: a gift for no apparent reason.
