Exciting News

Hello friends and fans! I have some exciting news to share with you. Many bloggers might entertain you with a long, dramatic story building suspense to a moment of spectacular reveal. But I might burst if I try that, so I'm just going to throw it out there...

I got into my first gallery!!!

And the best part is that it's the fabulous William Ris Gallery in Stone Harbor, NJ. This is the same gallery that my husband and I have been visiting during our vacations for at least the past 10 years. It is the gallery where we made our first purchase of fine art. And it is a lovely, family run gallery which shows consistently beautiful work. I couldn't be happier!

I met with director Mary Cantone Thursday morning. Mary's warm, friendly personality put me right at ease. I really enjoyed showing and talking about my art. Mary agreed to take six pieces -- four drawings from my tap series and two watercolors. Hooray! (I promise to share images in a future post.)

Please stop by and take a look if you happen to be in Stone Harbor or any of the neighboring South Jersey shore towns.

And thank you to all of my online friends who encourage me and give me feedback on my work, especially Rose. I don't believe I would have been able to accomplish this goal if I was creating in a vacuum.

I just wanted to let you know about a new forum for artists as well as musicians, fashion designers, and filmmakers, http://www.PutItOn.com. As an artist I think that the mission is really great. The site gives you a free gigabyte of space for portfolio, there is no commission taken for sales, audio and visual works can been streamed in their entirety, you can create live personal broadcasts for your followers, and anything you write will be translated into 10 languages. So check it out!
