It’s been a wonderful early summer, filled with birthdays and other celebrations, so much so that it seems like I can’t ever quite catch up with myself! I’m creeping closer to finishing a painting that I started in March before work became busy, and looking forward to adding it to The Process of Remembering collection. Once it is finished I have ideas in the works for a different series of smaller paintings, which I have been photographing and brainstorming for.
I just received my copy of Studio Visit Magazine vol. 34, a gallery catalog distributed to several thousand galleries across the US. I’m pretty excited to be on page 100. I’ve re-applied to the magazine on their latest call for submissions also, and am hopeful that I will be chosen for volume 35 as well.
I have been investigating printing companies in order to create affordable, high quality fine art prints of several paintings to sell in the River Rock Collective in Brattleboro, and in a yet-to-be-created Etsy store. I love making and sharing my art, and understand that the original oil paintings are not affordable for a wide audience. It’s important to me for my art to be enjoyed by as many viewers as possible, and creating high-quality giclee prints seems like a great step towards getting my artwork into the hands of many to enjoy.
Lastly, I’m still plugging away at some graphic work for Zootriceuticals, fine tuning a logo for them and should be finished shortly. All in all, since the weather has been warm it’s been a whirlwind of activity and decisions, with no signs of slowing down, but all signs pointing to things going very well.
