When I last posted, it was January and the Big 500 show had not ended. I was looking forward to a year of no goals or plans besides just continuing to try new things with painting.
Well, this year has been even better than last year! I sold every piece that I submitted to the Big 500 show, and in June I was invited to participate in a show called 88 Strong at The Goodfoot Pub & Lounge, featuring 88 artists and 88 themes. I made the five paintings above for the show.
I’m loving the challenge of quickly making paintings for shows, especially since I don’t really have a firm process. I learn with each painting and I’m loving it.
I haven’t been doing much drawing. I miss it sometimes, but I’m getting more satisfaction with painting right now. But I’m sure at some point I’ll return to my old drawing practice.
I’m currently in another show this month. But I’ll save that for another blog post.
Btw, stay turned for changes around here. Thanks for continuing to follow along this winding creative path.
I update a lot more regularly on my Facebook artist page. Check it out to see progress pics, show announcements and more!

That is so awesome to hear. You’ve been growing ad an artist over the years. Keep it going and much success to you.
Thanks! I guess I’ve come a long way from those early sketches. 🙂
