Fire on the Water

Just when I thought things couldn’t get any better…
“Fire on the Water” took 3rd Place at Central Brevard Art Association’s
inaugural show at the Cocoa Beach Country Club.
Later, I went down to the Henegar Center for the Opening reception and award ceremony for Strawbridge Art League’s Mini-Vision show and found one of my paintings had won a merit award.  When I talk to people at the shows, I’m amazed at the amount of positive comments I’m getting.  I’ve even had a few folks say they don’t usually like abstract work, but they really like my new pieces.

Changing gears and launching into a new style of artwork and medium can be a little scary.  I find myself thinking, well, I like it, will anyone else?

New Day Dawning

I think this weekend has confirmed that yes, at least a couple of people do.

My painting, New Day Dawning, sold Saturday morning at Central Brevard Art Association’s first show at the Cocoa Beach Country Club.  A lovely young couple told me it reminded them of a trip  they had taken to Times Square on a rainy day, and when I handed them their new painting, he turned to her and said “Happy Valentine’s Day”.  My heart melted.  What could possibly be better than that?
