You win some, you lose some

Preliminary results are in from Harbor Shores–

Downstairs lobby with watercolors. The watercolor below the large oil was a study for the larger painting,

The watercolor below the large oil was a study for the larger painting, and it’s sold. The second one from the left is on hold, waiting for pickup.

News from Harbor Shores, a couple of sales and a nice artist’s reception! The crowd was really great, and I truly love talking to people who want to know about my art. I was in a busy “professor/demonstrator” mode for almost the entire time (had to sneak my wine in between guest chats). Only got this sort of goofy-looking photo of me to prove I was actually there–

I look kind of dorky, but the paintings are nice

The exhibit depicted fall and winter scenes, and even though there was still a February cold wind/nip in the air nobody seemed to complain. Maybe feeding them helped?

As for my trip to LowellArts, well, as Mr. Trump might say, “LOSER!!”. Both my entries were rejected. You just never know what the judges may be looking for. Probably not something quite as abstract as Sky Pads. However, I did get my wish, which was to have both accepted or both rejected–did not want to make two more 200-mile round trips!

Not to worry. Plenty of other opportunities out there!

  1. I am sorry to hear about the rejections. But as you know, you just have to keep going at it again. Next time will be another story. The paintings I have seen from your hand, are all gorgeous. 🙂

      Thanks for your vote of appreciation! I’m truly not too concerned–I think I probably have enough rejections to wallpaper maybe a …small bathroom?😜 It’s just a matter of finding the right venue, kind of like waiting for just the right person to buy that unconventional house you just put up for sale.

    I’m chiming in a bit late, Ali, but you know I love all your work! Since meeting you back in 2010, I’ve followed the growth and expansion of your artistic style(s). This was a very lovely display of your art, warm and welcoming.

  5. It’s not your name, but the name of this musician definitely got my attention!
