Despite all my flops this past week, I think I hit a home run. In the next breath I doubt my own judgement - there's been dozens I've beamed over only to have a smidgeon of interest. Another thing that comes with the job.
Now what you're seeing is less than a square inch of the finished painting. I just can't reveal the entire piece until the time is appropriate. I've taken on a new direction this year - staying loyal to several galleries and in between I jump in on a few competitions and accept other invitations to special exhibitions around the country. It's hard work and it's right at my comfort level. We'll see how it goes. And yes, I will always continue offering small work on auctions. Speaking of which, I'll get right on it.
I do want to add - this painting in its entirety and another piece will be included in a Summer Catalog published by Morris & Whiteside Galleries, and will be posted on my website and theirs in mid-June.
