It Starts. . .

I have started receiving applications for 2012 shows. There are a few decisions to be made: try again for the ones that haven't done so well recently hoping that things will pick up, or go in a new direction? Known versus unknown?

Room for One More

So the art fair season is long over, and I'm filling in some gaps in the bird painting inventory. The Eastern Bluebird is a big favorite, so I'm hoping it sells next year. I had an idea that I would paint it perching on a sumac branch, but though I wasn't sure if bluebirds were ever seen on this tree, I thought the color combination would look good. After some internet research, I learned that bluebirds have an affinity for sumac. So do I.
