Charlottetown Colors

Charlottetown Colors   8x10"  NFS

I painted this Tuesday morning but with the holiday festivities and prep, plus work (which I'm grateful to have), I'm just now getting this posted. This is a Christmas gift for a family member, so let's see if anyone in the family is reading this??? Ha! Painted this from one of Bill Oakey's wonderful photographs he took on a Canadian cruise. This shot was taken on Prince Edward Island. Will enlarge for our  Side by Side continued works. Hope everyone is staying sane and seeing friends and family and enjoying the frenzy!!! xoxo

Debbie Curtis at C4 Workspace in San Antonio was kind enough to post photos of my exhibit on Flickr and their Facebook page. I have 10 paintings hanging on the long wall and side wall, and 'about 12 smaller still life works on the front wall by the window. This giclee print of one of my pastel waterscapes is hanging there. "Rocky Shore" 11x14" print is matted and framed and hanging there. Will be painting soon!! Thinking bright colors and loose edges.

Alaskan Reflections #1   11x14" giclee print on paper
16x20 matted. $155 matted + tax (TX only) + $16 sh/h.

Due to snow (for 10 minutes), and freezing temps in Austin, I couldn't make it to the First Friday reception for my solo show in San Antonio. :(   But enjoyed the comfy, cozy night in. Will reschedule a reception soon. The C4 Workspace does not have a Jan. artist so looks like I may have my 20 paintings down there for 2 months!! Woohoo. Today I attended the artists' reception @ the First Presbyterian church on Mesa where I have 6 paintings up thru mid Jan. Sold one! (Lake Travis 10 x 10" - blog Jan. 7 posting).  With the holidays and lots of new biz clients in my communications biz, I'm not painting as much.  But billing like crazy. Yeah!! Love looking at other artists work online to stay inspired. Love Lisa Daria's colors - check her out!!! Happy December. So much going on. My husband is making chili as I write. Too cool.
