“I learned never to empty the well, but always to stop when there was still something in the deep part of the well and let it refill at night from the springs that fed it.” –Ernest Hemingway
Rabbits always lead to pigs, right? I am working toward my show that opens March 6 at the DK Gallery in Marietta (GA) called Smile. After painting a big piece that requires lots of detail, it’s really fun for me to paint these animals. They come quick and I can usually finish them in a day.
Hope you aren’t getting tired of too many blog posts or too many paintings on Facebook. You are safe for a while, my next piece is big and will probably take me a week to finish. This weekend I’ll head to Macon to pick-up the pieces that didn’t sell at the Whimsy show. I am still amazed that I have sold 13 pieces. WOW. Thank you! I will leave a few for the Gallery. They have a great online store that makes it so easy to send someone who’s interested in purchasing my work. I only sell through my galleries. They take care of sales tax, shipping and all of those things that would take me out of my studio. That makes me happy.
