Paining number eleven of my "Small paintings - Big sale". I'm so curious about how long I can keep this up  because I've never really counted my own paintings, especially the small ones. Yes I paint every day, plus on location and when on the paint outs  I usually paint 2 pieces. Well, I believe, I will figure it out  when I run out of paintings to post .. Such is life...
There is a book called Bend in the River by Nobel  Laureate V. S. Naipul

Today is June 17, my beloved, late husband Chris birthday...8 years ago he passed away suddenly from a heart attack. That tragedy changed the course of my life..After the initial shock, after the emotional fog of many months had lifted , I knew that I had to come back to my roots, and start to paint and teach again..It's painting that healed me and opened up a very unexpected and very supportive channel.

Painting is, hands down, my absolutely favorite activity, and may be even an obsession. But it's so important to recognize when this activity takes over your life in all directions and frankly, unbalance you.
I feel this kind of shift recently. I analyzed why and from where I got those sensations, and decided that I need to say "no" to some of my countless responsibilities in order to get back to my golden ratio of Art/health/family. So I did this change, and will see how it will affect my emotional state.

But for now is a painting for sale ! It's a painting number # 9, called "Columbia" oil on linen 6x12

DAY 8 - Lot's of Fun

I had so much fun going through all my small size paintings, reviewing them and deciding which one to offer next ..
It's ironic how viewing small paintings gives me so many ideas about directions and concepts I could go with my art. I'm getting really excited about my next chapter !
         Speaking off excitement,  panting number 8 called "Orange Mood" - a very happy color for me.

Before I post my sixth painting for sale, I have great news to share for all of us who thoroughly enjoyed  the "value viewer" app . All my students were so happy with that app and were using it in obsessive kind of way . Well  right up to the moment, when the developer Mark Putnam decided
To no longer support his own creation. So the good news is we found a new app, called "Notaniser"  Try it, you will LOVE it,
Here is my painting number 6, called "Willamette Valley" btw, this is an award winning piece !
