Holiday Show 2010

Art Access in Salt Lake City is having their annual holiday sale. Link here for their website and info. They requested small still lifes. I did 5, really small pieces (7 x 9"). I love working small. It is less laborious, so immediate. I literally can do 1 or 2 a day. During a baby nap. I felt so productive the week I did these. Unlike a large painting that I work on, rework, glaze, rework, set aside, rework, critique....over several weeks. Large paintings are great for my street cred and for the pocketbook, but if I have to choose, I choose small. I guess variety is the key so I don't get bored. Any that don't sell will be on their way to Texas.

Spoiler....or Teaser?

Only 1 month until I have to be done painting for my show at Terzian Gallery. Here is a sneek peak at what I have been working on. They are representative of the roles I carry; Sister, Wife, Daughter, Mother. I am up to 18 out of 20 paintings. Just 2 more to go! (But then I would love to have it up to 30 for the show in January at the Springville Museum....hmmm.)
