An offer I can’t refuse

It turns out that the Box Factory paid off a double dividend. The curator of the Gallery at the Inn at Harbor Shores also saw my painting at the MAAC show and thought it would be neat to fill their gallery with 10 of my Sky Pads. We emailed back and forth, I visited the gallery, and the show will open around mid-September.

All of this means that I have to get five more large-scale paintings done in about a month and a half in order to cover their spacious walls. I have four in progress now, so here’s a quick look at the preliminaries. Fortunately I can work on one while I wait for layers on another to dry…

  3. Number 7 is especially nice, but they are all lovely. Congratulations, and you are going to be one very busy woman, but that’s ok.. some of us thrive on deadlines!!!!

    the property will most likely change owners next week, and in another few months, my old life will return. i look forward to having more quality time for painting, though i will miss my friends the birds!

    happy painting!

    Box Factory has been lucky for me, too, in the past though not quite that lucky. I like them even more now! Yeah!!
