Here is the count down so far... 8 Paintings finished, 19 in progress, and 4 weeks to go. Keep in mind that they are all different sizes ranging from 8 inches to 72 inches. Tonight I plan to work on the small ones at my kitchen table instead of down in my studio, so I can still hang out with my family.
Below is the image I sent for the post card. The exhibit is going to be called; Transitions in Color and Texture with Heather Haymart and Chris McCarthy. The reception will be Sunday, February 10th from 1:00-2:30 and then I will be doing an artist talk/demo afterwards. I think I have selectively forgotten about the artist talk. Better get to planning that too!

I know all of this sounds crazy, and it kind of is considering that I am running the Wood Icing Gallery, finishing a commission, have another one waiting in the wings for after the exhibit (thankfully!), I am trying to help my 8th grader plan for high school stuff, and keep up with my 5th grader's activities, BUT, and it is a big BUT, I am so happy about this body of work I am creating. The other day, I finished a little section of one of my paintings where some orange showed through some blue and I squealed out loud right there in my studio all by myself. This is joy, and it is why I keep driving myself crazy with all of this. Those are the moments that remind me of why I HAVE to create.
