Thank you!!!

The auction at the Newburyport Art Association was such a nice event! It was packed with artists, collectors and art lovers. I am happy to say that my piece sold to a very nice couple - it makes me feel good when I know a painting is going home with someone who loves it! I have a few works in progress (Tom, your commission piece is almost done!), and have a few shows coming up including a group show at the Newburyport Art Asc. in July and the Andover Art in the Park in September. I'll keep you updated!!

New Paint 2010

It was all so exciting! Yesterday I participated in the New Paint 2010 wet paint out in Lawrence. I strayed from my 'safe' choice of a soft landscape to do a street scene of the downtown. It was quite a challenge and so much fun. A local business owner offered to purchase my painting at the end of the day, but I told him it was promised to auction. He gave me a reserve price and although I feel bad that he was outbid, I was thrilled that the piece sold for as much as it did and that I was able to to participate in making such a nice donation the the Essex Art Center!

I would like to thank the Lawrence business owner for his interest in my art, bid and subsequent commission. Thank you also to the generous buyer of my painting/supporter of the art center. Last but definitely not least, I would like to thank my best friend Robin not only for her continued support of me and my obsession with art, but for attending the auction with me last night and for her EXTREMELY generous donation to the art center which will enable children to attend camp there this summer who otherwise would not be able to. You are the best!
