On The Way To Colorado

 I'm shipping off several large paintings this morning to two galleries in Boulder Colorado. I was supposed to have two weeks to prepare the work but the gallery called yesterday and wants to meet with my agent there on Thursday. Wow, talk about a whirlwind of activity. Two of my paintings unfortunately, won't be finished in time to make the trip but I can send them later.

  So after an emergency business meeting yesterday afternoon that got me up from a much needed nap, the paintings are on their way. Hopefully, the galleries will accept them in and find good homes for them. I have a good feeling about this as they have already viewed my portfolio so things look promising, Yay!

  I still have a show next month and also an open house to get ready for. I started this canvas yesterday, working on the background and this morning, got the sketch in. It's another one of my Wild Haired Ladies. I adore painting these. They are so much fun to create and have so much personality. And after having worked so hard painting the gallery paintings, this is a nice way to just let go and create with some reckless abandon.

  So without further ado, here is the sketch..............

And a bit of a closer shot...............

I have this one to work on and also my sweet chubby bird painting too. These will keep me busy today. Have a great Tuesday all!
