Meditation Garden #52 8X8" framed

This is a bit of a departure as I am using a marouflaged linen background for the first time. I am somewhat surprised and delighted to find it actually feels fairly good.

This has a real pearl, a iching coin, Turkish Marbled Paper, a jade stone, glass beads and acrylic on artboard.

post show

The show at the Katharine Butler Gallery was a delight. Ronn Mattia and Ruth Hook Colby showed some remarkable work and mine seemed to compliment theirs nicely.

Sales were brisk and welcome. After chatting with the gallery director recently, he feels that a total of 18 pieces of my work were sold during the month. There were some sales on Ronns and Ruths part but I didn't want to pry into that. I can only hope we all did well.

18 works sold means my inventory is diminished considerably so I will be spending the next few months building back the stock. YIPPEE! Isn't that what we all wish for anyway.

The above is Meditation Garden #49. 12X12" framed. A bit more experimental than some but I think worth the effort.

The show at the Katharine Butler Gallery in downtown Sarasota has come to an end. What a wonderful show it has been. I had sixteen works on display and when all was tallied there were 10 sales from the floor and 6 commissioned works.

Needless to say I am honored and thrilled.

Last night was a special gallery walk and it was very successful. While we were waiting we gathered up and had a quick photo done. This is most of the artists at the gallery. We actually had a chance to chat and talk to each other, something that rarely happens during a regular art walk. What a treat.
