This is a still life I set up for some Albany artists who came to paint and have lunch. We are toying with a name for our group. Shirley suggests Kaleidoscope Artists. I put my foot in my mouth saying that I couldn't spell it. But I like the word. I think it describes the diversity of possiblities we have.
I used to fancy myself as an artists' artist. In a few instances I am sure I have influenced some. My blog might help me in that direction. But I would also like to sell some. It is not my greatest love to market my work. I really like to demonstrate that I just don't hack out my paintings and want all to know the depth of my involvement. So I think for me showing my work along with my process will mean that my art will find new homes where they are fully appreciated. I do plan to put early work and paintings I did in collaboration in on-line galleries this year. I am also wanting to get my work out to venues farther away from home this year with my solo exhibit in Keizer my first step. But I am not going to make paintings just for sale. First they must be for my own satisfaction.
