Oil on Canvas
This year my goal has been to get out of the studio and share my paintings with the world. It's been a steep learning curve for me. And at times, it's been uncomfortable. I've achieved some important goals: updating my website, having business cards printed, having postcards to my show printed, sending out invites and showing up for my first show, sending handwritten thank you notes out and jumping into the blogosphere. Whew.
I'm happy at this point. And I'm deeply grateful for all the support from family and friends during this process. But now it's time to get back to work. Get back to the original reason for painting oil on canvas. It's time to listen and reflect. What shall I paint next? What new direction ? That will take a little bit of time.
In the meantime, I enjoy reading other artists' blogs and visiting their websites. It gives me inspiration. I appreciate the generous souls who share their knowledge of the arts and give tips on how they achieve their own goals. To them, I say thank you.
