"The Witness" Oil on canvas, SOLD
I am back from Portland and am inspired now to get going. I wish I could
say I visited galleries and the museum and saw tons of art. I did not, as I
was way too busy. I did see the delightful art of my friend Cindy Bilotti.
The pieces I saw and loved are on Cindy's Flickr. I really enjoyed her faces.

"Crossing the Blues", Oil on canvas, 24x18, SOLD
At one time I showed my work at Roche Bobois in Portland, a high end
furniture store and sold tons of art. I have been wishing for another,
similar, situation with great people like the ones managing my art at
RB. The ex-manager called me and she works at another high end
furniture store in the Portland area and she wanted to represent my
art again. So we met and she took a painting I happened to have in
the back of my car. I am thrilled to be working with Jill again and to
be showing in a nice furniture store. I think people can really respond
to art when they see it in the context of living spaces.
"Jubilee", Oil on Canvas, 24x18, SOLD
The reason I had the painting in the back of the car in the first place
was to meet with Donna Guardino of Guardino Gallery to submit my
work for her 2011 calendar. Submissions are still open and I won't
know until the fall, but I am under consideration. I did an exhibit of
my drawings several years back at this gallery and would love to
show again. She was complementary of the work, which is always a
great thing to hear.
The other cool thing that went on while I was there was the phone
calls from Willow Galley in Walla Walla telling me I had sold 3 more
pieces of art. Rockin'!!
So off I go to paint. Have a great day.
