On other fronts, I haven't skipped a beat since my move into my new space! Some of my art friends said that my work would be impacted by the new space, specifically in how I worked - huh? I was skeptical that that would be one of the things that would happen, but guess what! It has happened - just the distance I'm able to move away from the work has made a difference in how I work! Geez! Who knew! Getting far enough away from the work gives me new eyes - It's rather hard to explain, but for those of you who think I work in broad gestures and large strokes, I don't. I work really quite small, working one small section at a time, moving onto the next and then the next, more like a quilt, then it's all covered up and began again. So being able to move farther away gives me the broad look I need! Wow, this doesn't even make sense to me when I read it, but maybe a few of you can get the idea.
Anyway, more news. Gallery903 has offered me a, wait for it, a SOLO show next year. I'm thrilled! I have never had a solo show before. It will be a huge challenge for me and I'm looking forward to it! AND they sold the large triptych two days ago! They only had it for a week and someone bought it! Plus they bought another smaller piece at the same time. I was a bit stunned! Celebrations ensued!
Before I go I'll leave you with a piece I finished on Friday,
