Relaxing after the art show

April 3rd, 2017

The 1 April Spring art show was sporadically attended, but I managed to sell a few items. I received many compliments on my work; lots of people took business cards, and some will probably visit my FAA galleries. Yea! Time to play catch up on hom... 

Framing Frenzy

March 28th, 2017

With my first show of the season happening this Saturday, I'm up to my ears in time to do photography. :-( I have seven prints to frame; signage to update, decisions to make about how I'll set up. This is the 33rd Annual Spring Art and ... 

Although this collection is new, I have been seeing and photographing abstract images for a long time. The image with his post I call In the Forest. It started as a blurred image I took of tree branches, liking the green against the dark background.... 

Spring hasn't officially arrived, but I have already marked my Summer calendar for two art shows in which I'll participate. In July, the 3-day Depot Arts Festival in Livingston, Montana, and the 2-day August Lincoln Arts Festival in Lincoln, Montana....

I have posted images here at FAA for several years, and no matter how often I tell myself not to rush, I've done it again. I thought my original Digital Mountain Goat was just fine, but after getting critiques from several artist friends I realized ... 

With only a month until my first art show/sale of 2017, I'm pondering new techniques and materials. I think it's important to always present something new at shows, and at the first one of the year, that's what I intend. My techniques haven't chan... 

Someone suggested I make a video of me at work creating digital sculptures. Such a video would be so cut and spliced, it would look hokey. It takes me four, six, even more than a dozen times (over the course of several nonconsecutive days) before I g... 

Critique groups

May 3rd, 2010

I attended the local art critiquing group on Saturday. Quite rewarding. No photographers present, although one is represented in the gallery. But the water colorists, people working in oil and acrylics, pastels, plein air, and all studied items broug...
