Behind the Scenes

Murmuration is now installed and open for viewing. Installation day was Sunday. For the first time in years I was able to fit all of my artwork in my own vehicle partly because I have a car with cargo space now and partly due to the modular nature of most of the pieces.

Below, installation genius Ellen Starr is about to add the wall lettering, while Anne M Bray, whose Pattern Recognition II runs concurrently, speaks with visitors. I love that people like to come in and look around while installation is in progress, sidestepping discarded bubble wrap, not minding booby traps such as wet paint, assorted step ladders.

Zabrina takes care of filing. I have her to thank for the organization level of all my paperwork. Perhaps she'll learn the alphabet one day. In the meantime she uses her own, secret method.

Bear adds his calming presence.

I sure wish I could see your show. It is beautiful.

Hi Beth, Thank you! I wish you could too - and I all of yours!

Good luck on your show. The paintings are beautiful. I love how you work in units. I like to do that too. Multiples are difficult to hang, but the more there are, the more powerful the painting grows and the more flexible it is for collectors. Alas, I'm doing a portrait commission now, so multiples are on my back burner.
You must have a nice size studio space. You are very fortunate. My multiples are same subject, but not continuous scenes. I'm missing them. Break a leg! Lots of sales.

Thank you! I love the flexibility of units too.
I have a decent size space, but always want more - don't all artists?
Thanks for your well wishes. Congratulations on your commission!

Keep on painting and posting. (I also wish I could see your show! Good luck.)
