Summer = New work, opportunities and familiar friends

Summer is in full swing here in southern Vermont and the market season has begun!  I only relocated to the state seven months ago, and already I feel very much involved and invested in the arts community, which is thriving.

In the studio, I just finished up the above 24″ x 24″ gift canvas to commemorate the grand opening of Yoga Haven Martha’s Vineyard.  I met Robert Sidoti when I was living in Somerville, MA and had the opportunity to participate in his Broga classes.  It was a life-changing experience, and I always believe in giving back.  Thank you Robert, and good luck to you and Sherry with your new adventure!

I have also been working on the study work for my next series.  The above 5″ x 5″ orange canvas lead to the   10″ x 10″ blue canvas that follows.  It has always been my habit to work small before I go large, and this instance is no different.  Today I started with the gesso prep on a new 17″ x 32″ wood panel, and I can’t wait to dive in.

Two weekends ago, Miss G and I had the opportunity to do a small market set up at the Pyramid Holistic Wellness Center.  I am a firm believer that no matter how small or large the venue, it’s always good to put oneself out there to put a face with the art.  It was a blazing hot day, and we had to shift canvases and cards as the sun became more and more intense, but overall, it was a very positive day.

Speaking of outreach – I was very happy to have the opportunity to send some of my most recent work to my favorite Danish vocalist, Stine Grove.  She is a HUGE name in the European and American music scene and has been a loyal supporter of mine for some time.  Last year, I sent her some of my smaller works for her studio.  It really warms my heart and soul, as it’s normally her music that I listen to as I paint, so for the full circle to be made is just amazing to me. Thank you Stine!

If you haven’t had the chance to see my newest art cards, please take a look at them here.

It’s already July, but in the coming weeks and months there will be some exciting activity for me to report on.  I already have a major event coming up in August, but I will keep it under wraps until the time gets a little closer.

For all of you that have been following me over the years and continue to do so, I thank you for your constant interest and support.  I could not do it without you!  Please stay tuned!
