Signs of Spring

I think I can see little signs of springs sprouting up around. Today was the first sunny day in a very long time. I have been busy painting away in my studio working away at my landscape series.

Also I am going to be doing An Artist a Day fundraiser which is raising money for school supplies for teachers. I am going to be at Muse Art and Design on the last Sunday of April painting away in the store. Thirty 16"x20" canvases/panels will be hung in an exhibit at Muse Art and Design. Each canvas/panel will start out blank, labeled with the name of an artist and the date that the artist will create their piece.

I went to a roller skate birthday party this weekend and here I am rolling it up on the rink. I don't think I have been roller skating since I was maybe 12 or 13- which it totally made me feel like a kid again. I didn't even fall once even though I can't say the same for my husband :).

I went to a lecture this last week about "Presenting yourself professionally to a gallery." Since I am primarily a self taught artist it's very intimidating to approach a commercial gallery. Going to this lecture was a great experience and really made me think about a lot of things goal wise.

Have a good week everyone! I have a few paintings coming to a close that I will post shortly :)
