This has happened to me before.  I remember when I heard the voice you will paint 52 paintings in one year. Actually, the voice said you will paint 100 paintings   I believe the voice was trying to get my attention.  I changed the goal realistically to 52; a painting per week.  I did complete the goal and sold over half of my pieces.  It also, was the beginning of a very successful and productive time for me.

I do believe, when you have a strong enough goal it pulls you.  It becomes a catalyst for great things to happen.

I am sure you recall when I wrote about completing 120 abstract paintings, starting on November 2019 and ending March 2020. (Source: One Hundred and Twenty Abstracts) The goal for creating these were to become familiar with abstraction. Little did I know that this would be a catalyst for another successful and productive time for me. In January 2021, I decided to take twelve of the best studies from the 120 abstracts and enlarge them to 36” x 36”. The series is called Twelve of Twelve (Source: Evolution Of An Artist Series) All Twelve paintings were produced on Arches oil paper with Cold Wax and oil, plus mixed media.

I am excited to say that I completed the Twelve of Twelve series on September 14th. It is with great satisfaction, that not only did I complete this challenging project, but that they also came out beautifully. They are now being mounted on 1-1/2” cradled panels for my upcoming shows.

 

Open Studio Event

I am having an Open Studio in my home, November 6th and 7th between 10 p.m. to 4 p.m.  You are all invited. The second show will be by invitation only at Cordevalle Country Club, Saturday, December 4th. If you are serious about finding a piece for your home, please let me know if you would like to go to the latter.

As I mentioned, this goal put me in a mode of productivity. I decided to redo my website entirely. With lots of help, I do believe that I now have a website that has fulfilled my dreams. I hope that you find it as amazing as I do. I would love for you to subscribe to my website for future notifications and information.

My next blog will be a notification on how to win a free painting or two, if you subscribe to my website. More will be announced in the next week or two. All subscribers old and new will have a chance to win.

I would love to see you at my Open Studio, I hopefully will have time to do a demo. You will also be able see and purchase many new creations.

Contact me personally on my website, and I will send you physical invitation. Thank you!
