I was talking to another artist and after mentioning the larger paintings I have been doing was asked, "What are you going to do with them?"
My answer: The same thing I do with the small paintings.
(Put them away, keeping some, tossing out others after reviewing them later on. Maybe even trying to get into a show with one or two. Or just letting them sit there because they are too good IMHO to throw out but not good enough to put money into matting and framing and hanging them around the house.)
Maybe it's a matter of being a painter who doesn't have any shows and doesn't put her work out there in cafes, coffee shops, small galleries or other venues. Maybe it's just that people wonder why you are painting big if you aren't showing your work all around the area and then some. Well, I guess this blog is my venue - and it's the only one, for now.
So thanks for letting me share my work here. And thanks for stopping and commenting once in a while (I do seem to have my dedicated followers who are always around for support and a word or two and a BIG THANKS to you all = you know who you are!)
The Middletown Arts Center's current show ends the 23rd and I've been wanting to drive up to see it. Maybe I'll do that this week before it's gone. If you're interested, check out their link here to get more information about the show.
(I mail off my SWAP painting to my partner today and she doesn't know it's coming from me. Hope she likes it!)
