"You make good work by making lots of work that isn't very good and gradually weeding out the parts that aren't good." - "success is not an accident." - Quotes from the book THE ARTISTS QUEST FOR INSPIRATION By Peggy Hadden

Done. Delivered.

This last week I did my annual Spring Delivery of many paintings that I had created over this long, very long, winter.  It feels good to empty my studio and start over fresh for the new season...kind of like what all of us feel or should feel like doing in our homes..aka..spring cleaning!
My first delivery stop was to Edgewood Orchard Galleries where Nell, JR and staff greeted artists all weekend with new work for their 45th season - opening this May...we are all excited to see what their fabulous roster of artists are coming up with for 2013!
                       This painting "Tender" 10x10" was delivered to Edgewood Orchard Galleries

Then home, to rest and re-load with a three gallery trip to downstate Michigan.  My first stop was the beautiful Tvedten Fine Art Gallery in Harbor Springs, Michigan, a quaint town and an awesome gallery - owner Margaret Tvedten is a fabulous artist and has no problem getting excited about her gallery artists work and finding homes for many of the pieces that fill her gallery.
                       This painting "Shooting Stars" 36x30" was delivered to Tvedten Fine Art

We then traveled to Grand Rapids to the wonderful LaFontsee Galleries!  WOW!  is all I can say - they have some amazing artists and the SPACE is to die for!!!!   I was able to supply them with many of my larger pieces as well as a great collection of smaller, more intimate pieces.  Had a wonderful time meeting face-to-face owners Scott & Linda and their wonderful staff!  It's easy to see that art is their passion...and what a great city, too!

On my return home I re-freshed my work at Gallery 50 in Traverse City and enjoyed a wonderful evening in downtown AND walking the sand on the waterfront beach...a beautiful evening with wonderful memories of an artful trip!  
Now let the season roll....
