“The only thing that makes one an artist is making art. And that requires the precise opposite of hanging out; a deeply lonely and unglamorous task of tolerating oneself long enough to push something out.” -David Rakoff

Sold! I loved making this piece and my husband said if it was still at the gallery, he wanted to bring it home. I sure hope she’s happy in her new home. After all she’s just looking for ‘a little magic.’

I dropped off some new work (photos below) today at High Country Art & Antiques in Blue Ridge, GA. She has a few other pieces as well. But after all this painting I’ve been doing, I thought I had a good inventory and could just relax for a few days. But now my studio is feeling empty again, so there is no time to stop working. Good thing I love to paint!

Hate to talk business, but every time I sell a piece, I get to buy more painting supplies.  Cheryl, the gallery owner will sell my work from her gallery or if you see a piece on my webpage. She’s close enough to me that I can take it to her if she doesn’t have it yet. She’s equipped to handle payment through credit cards and ship it to you wherever you are. Right now she’s totally renovating her gallery space. and will reopen on Valentines Day, but she’s always available by phone (706.633.9042). And of course, if you are in the area, you should try and visit her. It’s a wonderful gallery full of lots of great work. In fact we bought a fabulous mixed media piece when we were there today.

About Judy Shreve

Blogging for me is like keeping a journal which I have done in various forms since I can remember. But what's great about this format is it offers an opportunity to explore all the things that interest me as an artist with others. Blogging seems to strengthen that sense of being part of both something personal and something universal. It takes the journaling idea and expands it through visitor's comments creating a valuable dialog that connects us to each other no matter where we live. I enjoy responding to each comment and warmly welcome your visits. email: judyshreve at mac dot com

      Hi Carola – the challenge was actually fun – well some days were easier than others, but I’m really glad I did it. Thank you – hope I do get to sell some more work – it’s so exciting when that happens.

    Yay! Sales are good a very satisfying. It’s a wonderful feeling that connection with the buyer–it completes the work—and aside from magic—you work is honest and beautiful and that comes from your hard work and determination. Yay!
