Summer is in full swing here in southern Vermont and the market season has begun! I only relocated to the state seven months ago, and already I feel very much involved and invested in the arts community, which is thriving.
In the studio, I just finished up the above 24" x 24" gift canvas to commemorate the grand opening of Yoga Haven Martha's Vineyard. I met Robert Sidoti when I was living in Somerville, MA and had the opportunity to participate in his Broga classes. It was a life-changing experience, and I always believe in giving back. Thank you Robert, and good luck to you and Sherry with your new adventure!
I have also been working on the study work for my next series. The above 5" x 5" orange canvas lead to the 10" x 10" blue canvas that follows. It has always been my habit to work small before I go large, and this instance is no different. Today I started with the gesso prep on a new 17" x 32" wood panel, and I can't wait to dive in.
Two weekends ago, Miss G and I had the opportunity to do a small market set up at the Pyramid Holistic Wellness Center. I am a firm believer that no matter how small or large the venue, it's always good to put oneself out there to put a face with the art. It was a blazing hot day, and we had to shift canvases and cards as the sun became more and more intense, but overall, it was a very positive day.
Speaking of outreach - I was very happy to have the opportunity to send some of my most recent work to my favorite Danish vocalist, Stine Grove. She is a HUGE name in the European and American music scene and has been a loyal supporter of mine for some time. Last year, I sent her some of my smaller works for her studio. It really warms my heart and soul, as it's normally her music that I listen to as I paint, so for the full circle to be made is just amazing to me. Thank you Stine!
If you haven't had the chance to see my newest art cards, please take a look at them here.
It's already July, but in the coming weeks and months there will be some exciting activity for me to report on. I already have a major event coming up in August, but I will keep it under wraps until the time gets a little closer.
For all of you that have been following me over the years and continue to do so, I thank you for your constant interest and support. I could not do it without you! Please stay tuned!
