Weekends through Dec. 20, 2009
"Small Works, Big Ideas, Thinking Inside the Box"
Melrose Bay Art Gallery
These two paintings are new small works for the show at the Melrose Bay Art Gallery. I hung them this morning. There are so many really good art works still available at reasonable prices. It really is a mystery to me what sells and what doesn't.

I had a fun time working on this painting, Decadent Forest, last week. I painted over an older painting and I feel that helped me achieve the delicate balance between intention and discovery. Sometimes I plow right through with my intentions and forget to play and be involved with the process. I have also just played and felt the painting had no structure or intention. It's a tricky balance.
It also felt really good to make some sales this weekend. The prices weren't high but nothing makes an artist feel better than a sale. Thank you to those purchasers, I appreciate you. And those sales also help the Harn Museum of Art and Melrose Bay Art Gallery, places that we love.
