Dreams Await - DOA

Dreams Await, 36 x 36
I got some sad news that my painting Dreams Await, was destroyed by UPS while being returned to me.
In the 30 years of shipping art work I've only had one other painting destroyed (also by UPS)

Making Changes

Scout, before and after

In my last post I told you I was getting switching paintings around at my galleries. One of the things I do when I get a painting back is take a hard look at it and see if it needs to be 'improved'

I actually was happy with this painting, Scout, but decided to add to it anyway. Did I improve it? I don't know.

The Painting Quadrille

This is the time of year I do the Painting Quadrille, also known at the Painting Shuffle. I send a painting to gallery 'A', they send an older painting back to me. I send that painting to gallery 'B', they send a painting back to me...........

The good news: The galleries get 'new' paintings and this helps sales

The bad news: My house looks like an explosion of paintings and shipping materials

I'd rather be painting

Apples and Stripes, oil on board, 9 x 12

Boxing up paintings today. Blah! But I'm sending work to my newest gallery -Bucks County Gallery of Fine Art, as well as my tried and true galleries.

But I'd rather be painting!
