Contrasts, 2008, Oil on Panel, 11x14
........it turns out that my "career" went on without me last month. Doug told me I was still receiving checks while I was was gone, including a record breaking (for me) payment from the January show, but I really had no idea how many pieces had been sold in my various galleries until I sat down and went through my records today. This is usually a pretty slow time of the year, but sales were considerably more than last year. Good thing too, since I now have a new car to pay for.
And THANK GOD I had the sense to do a number of paintings before I left and even though I am still feeling a bit raw about getting back to work, I have spent all day preparing jpegs of those and updating galleries with the new images, new prices and my newly updated exhibition resume. I guess office work is a good way to ease back into the studio. I am tentatively planning to do some underpaintings tomorrow, because I am feeling that now is the time. I am liable to get some sort of blockage if I wait too long!
I have also finally gotten all of the figurative work that I did in Vermont photographed. I plan to get those ready and spend some time gathering my thoughts on all of that and will get a post up in the next few days. And after that I still have a few more posts planned about my time there, which will include more images of parties and the other resident's studio work, studios and with links to their websites.
Man, I sure can go on and on about a topic, can't I? You have no idea, unless you know me in person. Heh.
