September 3 - Last of the Maine Paintings, I think...

I have been busy, busy, busy! Freeing up time from the daily effort to produce a painting has given me opportunities to create in many ways. I've been doing the podcasts for iTunes, and have the first month of daily paintings online--October 12 through November 10, 2005, and will have the rest of the month up and running by this weekend coming up.

The painting for you today is one I did with acrylics, showing noonish light, and it is from the Somes Sound area in Maine. This is mostly palette knife, and done to clean out the acrylic boxes before coming back home. I really laid it on thick! It is being shipped back to Gail Ribas, who is in charge of the Acadia Workshop Center, and she will be adding it to her collection! It measures 9 x 12.

I received the Harness Tracks of America auction catalog in the mail yesterday, and one of my paintings is featured on the cover! The auction is online here, where you can scroll down and see my painting bottom center. There are many beautiful works of art to view. I have two paintings to ship to this fund-raising auction in October. I have lot numbers 22 and 83, and have to say the color sure stands out compared to others.

Five more of my paintings are in Maine at the "Dog and Pony Show" at Skyline Carriage Museum, on Skyline Farm. One already sold opening night, and I have hopes that perhaps the rest will not return. All are from the Daily Paintings and it was as if I were packing up old friends! The catalog of the show is downloadable in pdf format here.

Friday it is off to Georgia, to teach the full workshop in Dawsonville, so I've been getting my materials ready and preparing to leave for just over a week. I have to make lists of chores that need doing while I'm gone.

One more bit of news--my web sites have gotten so big that it was time to put a search tool to find paintings on them. And you can search them now! It is now so much easier to find pages with the art you're seeking, and I'm using it too, finding work when a collector purchases a painting so I can mark it sold. Please find that search link on the lower left side of every page! It searches not only the current site you're on, but the other two as well.

Welcome to another new collector, Jacob Cohen of Rockville, Maryland, who purchased not one, but two cat paintings ("Cat Blue" and "Black Cat") from the ebay store. today. Thank you!
