Voices: Mothers Who Create II

Just found out I've been juried into the upcoming exhibit "Voices: Mothers Who Create II" at The Little Gallery Under the Stairs in Lynn, MA. Small in size, but big in impact, the gallery has had some impressive exhibits, and I am pleased to be part of this one...doubly pleased that my image is representing the show on the gallery's website! Opening Reception: February 6, 2010. The show runs through April 10.

Maine Moonscape, digital mixed media collage

This new piece, called "Maine Moonscape" was inspired by the trees, evening sky, and other natural surroundings from one of my annual trips to Maine. Considering the winter we've been having, I'm feeling very nostalgic about a summer trip to the lake right about now!

Anyway, this is a 16x16x2 digital mixed media piece on gessobord. It currently resides in the members gallery at Galatea Fine Art, 460B Harrison Avenue, Boston, MA. Also this month at Galatea there are solo shows by Sean Palmatier "Mutations" {painting}, Alice Shafer & Wilson Hunt Jr. "Color/Form" {painting/photography} January 6 through 30, 2010.

Time to Reflect on...

What's Next...2010 (I will pronounce it "twenty-ten" as opposed to what I've heard others say "two-thousand and ten" ...that's just too long). So let me have my cup of coffee and think about this.

Are goals in order for this decade? Last year my goals were simple...more studio time (check!), get my work into galleries (check!), and license my work (still on the to-do list).

I am still keeping this simple list, but will work at it more aggressively. I now have a schedule of exhibits to submit work to on a regular basis, more gallery connections to pursue, including my own solo show in September 2010 at Galatea in the South End (check!), and a refined list of art shows to apply to, as opposed to art & craft shows. As for licensing, still a vague concept, but I have friends already doing so whose brains I will begin to pick.

Simple goals really, but lots of tasks to work at one at a time. Starting...NOW!
