I am excited! Today I have a plan…a real plan to take my career in a new direction. My husband has been after me for years to paint my art on canvas besides painting on walls and furniture. Instead I turned a deaf ear to him . Recently a gentleman saw a photograph of a canvas I had done while teaching class. He asked me what gallery could he go to to buy it. Then this weekend we visited an art gallery and as I viewed the many works displayed there I knew that my work has a voice and should be in a gallery, too. I simply need to have a collection. So I’ve thought about it for a few days and started a couple of canvases. They are sketched and prepped with washes and ready for my brush this afternoon. First, however I have to finish my design job on an entertainment center for a client. The murals, custom furniture and home decorating jobs are our bread and butter which I cannot neglect. But today, right here and now, I am making this canvas collection commitment and will blog on it as it progresses. Can you hear my husband cheering? I will keep you posted!
