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.

  2. Great to hear of this wonderful news! Congrats on the invite. The sanctuary is the part at the front of the church where the altar/communion table is found, although the word is often used to refer to the church interior more generally. The place where folk sit is called the nave (from latin for ship) and the entry area to the church is often called the narthex (in case you are interested!).
