Ardea

Ardea, 2011, oil/panel, 36"x48", (click to enlarge)

Shapes like this one excite me.  Getting the form just right is a challenge, but I really enjoy the fine tuning while the paint is still wet.

Just heard that a number of my recent paintings from 2010 - 2011 sold at the Tanner Hill Gallery booth at the Dallas Art Fair.  This is wonderful news for me since the whole southern USA experiment is just that, an experiment.  I'm trying to find out if the art market there will be responsive to my efforts.  Next stop for Tanner Hill is Art Chicago, then back south.  I hope things continue to go well for them with my work.

I leave for Arizona on Friday for a bit of a vacation in the Sedona area.  I'm pretty pooped from all the painting and working at Georgian College too.  A lingering cold isn't much fun, but I think it is because I'm run down.  Time to re-charge my batteries for a while.
