This cat nap will be in a little pet-focused show at Blick this month. It's the first painting I've submitted for a show, and it's a step toward a goal that is still forming in my head: putting artwork on view (beyond this web site that I haven't told anyone about except for, like, four friends and family). What next? Don't know. But this is something. Also, it is hard to photograph black. Oy.
Later is what?
After settling into various desk jobs, I always said I'd get back to painting later in life, and later is now. Again means that I tried once before. I decided to write about my painting endeavor, too, as a learning tool, an accountability tool, and to stay sharp in case I have to go back to a desk job. Again.
I love periodicals, and if I weren't trying to devote more time to painting I'd mail paper copies. Sign up here, and I'll conveniently send it (blog posts, sales, and new work) by e-mail instead.
