After several false starts I finally got the painting momentum underway in February and it was well worth the wait. I had a great time. This session it seems as if the ink was dominating the water, brush and paper. In addition to a number of abstracts, some landscapes showed up and a few florals that I will be adding color to in the next couple of days.
In March I will be exhibiting about 30 mandalas at a center in Sacramento called Ancient Future. It is a converted church with wonderful windows and open spaces. The mandalas will be hung in the main church area – is that called the sanctuary? Anyway, I will also offer a two-part mandala workshop in April. I hope some people sign up for it because I think it would be great fun to introduce others to this art form.
Lastly, I have been invited for the second year to have a picture in the Feminist Art Show at the University of California at Davis, which is just a short drive down the freeway. When I find out which painting has been selected I’ll set up a new post.
Meanwhile, if you go up to the navigation bar and click on the “New Art” page of this blog, you can see some of the pieces I have been working on.
