The other day a woman e-mailed me and said she would like to feature one of my paintings in Art World News in the Artists Worth Noting section. Oh my gosh, that is why I check my e-mail every day! Among other reasons, I am always holding out hope that someone will like my work and want to tell the art world about it! I know I shouldn't get too excited and I should wait to see if it actually comes to fruition, but I can't help it, I had to talk about it. I sent her Mind Shift. It is one of my favorite paintings from 2007. It sold back in July, and I kinda miss it. It went with its siblings though so I am glad they got to stay together. It's title fits it very well. I was truly having a mind shift when I made it. My thoughts were shifting from cynicism to optimism, from tortured angst to believing in manifest destiny. I don't know what happened, but when the calendar turned from 2006 to 2007 my mind set changed like turning on a light. That painting symbolizes that moment for me.
