Holiday Weekend Arts Abound!

Breezes are blowing cooler and the turning of the Seasons is in the air. We’re headed for a great weekend up here where the air is clear and the elk will soon be calling. This Saturday, 10-4 wander between Centro Plaza and the Cove Arts Center to ogle (and buy) the wares of local and regional artists. Stop in the Gallery when you’re wandering the Cove and say hi. I’ll brew some coffee and put out some sweet treats.

While I’m here I’ll share my glee that the piece I donated to Music From Angel Fire for their auction brought a bidding frenzy and sold for $200 more than my retail price! YAY…for me and for MFAF! Boy did that put a smile on my face!

It won’t be long now before I’m headed back to Puerto Vallarta for some R&R, a class and some more tropical painting time. I’m taking plenty of paper and canvas so watch for the new work to be out sometime in November…just in time for the holidays.

Speaking of classes…if you haven’t ordered your DVD of “How to Paint a Poppy that POPS! NOW is the time. The production work is complete and they are ON THEIR WAY to my door. I only ordered 1000…..so get yours ordered first! Once I’ve sold half I’ll start on the next one. So, let me know what you’d like to see next. Here are some options: Introduction to Design and Composition, Exploring Color and Mixed Media, Learn to Draw, or maybe Hollyhocks, Sunflowers or Daisies in Watercolor? Post here with your preference or contact me through the website www.angelfireartspace.com, or coming soon, www.howtopaintflorals.com

Ready? Set? LET’S PAINT!

I’m Back!

Wow. I can’t believe what a blur July was! Fabulous, though, if I do say so myself! Thanks to all the hard work by Texas Tech theatre students, my board members and all the volunteers who helped make this season of live theatre a success. As you may have guessed my long absence here was due to the manic days of AFMT and Angel Fire ArtsFest too. No execuse, just fact.

But here I am again, and my wheels are spinning like mad. Its been a long time coming, but now my video project is days away from fruition! The contract signed with a reproduction house, the website under construction and my VISA card cracking under the weight, but with high hopes for wild success! My gratitude to all the help and partnership of Turri Video Productions. The video will retail for $49 and will be available at my gallery (Angel Fire ArtSpace) and online. The official site will be www.howtopaintflorals.com but there will be links to get there from the primary site of www.angelfireartspace.com

In the meantime, I’ve been a painting train. I’ve fallen in love with Fredrix Watercolor Canvas and I just can’t stop! It’s the most fabulous painting surface I’ve encountered and I can’t imaging going back to paper, and framing and glass! I can put layers and layers and layers down and the canvas doesn’t care. It takes it and more. The layering creates that deep bold bright color that I love.

This series, The Choral Series, I just finished. I had the first two (The Chorus and The Trio) at ArtsFest…the final one, The Soloist, (not pictured yet) I finished today. All are watercolor on canvas, finished with an archival clear varnish. Maybe the next video will be how to paint watercolor on canvas! Actually, if there’s class you’d like to see in DVD, post a comment here and tell me what it is!

If you haven’t signed up for my newsletter yet, do so at my gallery site (click the link above). Get notification of upcoming events and news, and even specials that are promoted only in the newsletter! This month, its the 4th Annual Music From Angel Fire Gallery Gala Reception on Thursday (not Friday) August 23. I’ll have tons of new work (Roy Brown is bringing a bunch of new pottery) and we’ll introduce our newest addition to the gallery, Taos artist, Tom Noble.
Make sure to mark your calendars to come!
