Christmas Break

Snow Scene

Wanted a break  from oils.  It is a time just to sit back and enjoy the holiday season. In the meantime it is good opportunity to purge my art room of old brushes and dry paint tubes.  I also removed so many of my small studies that will never be shown.  It never ceases to amaze me how much we collect as artist.  I say we because so many of my art friends are in the same position. 

It is also a good time to reflect and re-visit our goals and what we would like to do in the new year.  Not the same as a New Year resolution, I have never been good at keeping resolutions.  So what I am saying is , I would like to look into other venues for showing  my work.  There are so many libraries and  I know the art organizations are  a great way of exposure.

The main thing is that I keep painting with the help of God, and to look for ways to develop my craft. We are very lucky as artist, we never get bored.  So as always Happy Painting everyone.

My exhibit at the Bayport Bluepoint Library

 Just got another Lenovo lap top, I purchased a more expensive one. Still very affordable, but it takes me a long time to do basic things with a computer.  The only support from Lenovo's Geek squad is costly. Found out that libraries supply free technical support. All said and done, I managed to get pretty acquainted with this device.  Apple products you get telephone support without a fee.  But I do like this laptop.

I got word that my painting Garden Path sold, so that was a lovely surprise. I do hope everyone is well and enjoying the holiday season. We will be spending the holiday with my daughters family.

Happy painting everyone.
