watercolor & ink on paper
This was the last painting of 2011. I think it's starting to hit me that I'm really moving back to the big city of Atlanta, and leaving the island. While I'm very excited to have my family all in one place, and the incredible urban opportunities...I am really going to miss walking a short block to see the ocean.
Even though I'm not leaving until June, I started packing this week. My lease was up at Blue Door and I decided not to renew it. My gallery space was immediately snatched up by another artist, and I moved everything out. I can honestly say, that I've questioned that decision a lot. I'm really going to miss that place. But, when I think of the loads of things that have to be handled before the move...I know it was for the best. It still makes me very sad.
On a happy note...the year ended with an article published in Cloth Paper Scissors November/December issue!
And the cover of Sasee Magazine. It is a women's magazine based out of South Carolina.
And 2012 is looking great....with the debut of my licensed products next week at the Atlanta Gift and Home Furnishings Mart. I'll let you know more about that next week when I head up to Atlanta for the show. Meanwhile...here's a sneak peak of some samples of the products they sent me. Shhhh...don't tell....
Happy New Year Everyone! More next week from Atlanta! I'm back to the 3 P's - painting, packing and any other necessary priorities....yes, probably in that order.
