A juried show in New York - a small works exhibition - at the National Association of Women Artists Gallery opened February 12 with a reception on February 16. I had two pieces accepted - my first showing in New York and I am very excited. The pieces accepted were of my new abstractted landscapes, minimalist, oil and cold wax on panel. I seem to have put aside the mixed media/collage pieces and am working on these more simplistic pieces and am finding a certain feeling of peacefulness inside. In other words, I am really "enjoying the process".
I am refreshed and back in the studio after a weekend trip to Charlevoix and Traverse City. Two galleries there (Elements & Gallery 50) represent me and I wanted to trade out some new artwork. We enjoyed walking downtown on a snowy evening and having a wonderful dinner at a bistro/chocolate restaurant. We also stopped at a tea house to warm up - lovely. Now back to reality and work!
