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 a Scorpio, a water sign, if you believe in such things. I do know that my emotions are influenced by the moon, and given that adult humans are 50-65% water, that makes perfect sense to me. I love to paint water scenes, especially of areas in the south, and of Mexico, that comprised much of my childhood and a significant part of my adult life so far (not that you could really accuse me of being an adult. I’m just old). Here is what I’m ready to sign. I enjoyed doing this painting so much, and the feelings and sense memories it evoked, that I would be lying if I said it was work. By the way, if you’re at all given to thinking slightly outside the proverbial box, pick up a copy of The Hidden Messages in Water, by Masaru Emoto. It’s a fascinating glimpse at what I consider the intersection of science, namely quantum physics, and spirituality. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Emoto when he came to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina to lead a blessing ceremony of Lake Pontchartrain.
