Wilmy Winter

The economy must be getting better because, for some reason people are calling about getting graphic design work and although I would love to just paint, design work pays much better. So I have been trying to balance it all out with the commissions.

On another note, I received a really nice letter from someone I met at the Farmer's Market last summer. She had said I inspired her to start painting again and now she is getting commissions and doing really well. 
I wanted to share her website:

I'm putting on a show Friday night at the coffee house. 
Here is the invite for those who can attend:

The Thief

Just got back from Atlanta today and had a really great time. Saw lots of amazing artwork and was very inspired. We ended up going up to Asheville afterward to see some galleries and then on to Charlotte for one night. 

It was a great get away, but I thought about painting the whole time and was anxious to get back. Before leaving, I had started this painting for an owl show at a shop downtown, then finished it tonight. 

I'll let you know when the show is. 

Got a lot of commissions in the works!

Here it is with the frame:

Three Amigos on Vacation

This is a commission from a RFPP on Facebook. I did a painting of two of these dogs and he wanted another of all three together, I'm also doing another commission for him of a friend's dog for a gift.

I have been trying to take it easy for the last few days . The show was so much work getting all the paintings ready, marketing, everything. I ended up having a panic attack, so I figured it was time to take it down a notch. 

The show did go very well with lots of attendees, some sales and getting a lot of positive response from the new paintings,  "Peace" and "Queen Naomi".

I'm going to the American Craft Counsel show in Atlanta new week and absolutely thrilled! If you ever get the chance, go! It is so inspiring and all the artists are the best in their craft. I can not stress to you how incredible this show is. 

I will be having another show March 26th at the coffee house with abstract Photography from Guy Pushe'e and maybe some other artists.

So much for taking it easy!
