Crossed Red Shoes

I shipped out all four paintings for the Chicago commission this morning. It's always an anxious time when I have to entrust the safety of my work to an independent agency, i.e. FedEx. I've been lucky so far in my art career, in that I haven't had any of my paintings, lost or damaged in transit. Nonetheless, I still tend to worry until I hear that they've arrived in tact.

I've been spending a lot of time since the completion of the commission working on my website. It hasn't had a significant update in well over a year, and I thought it was time to do some renovating. I eliminated a lot of pieces, then researched my archives for some older overlooked, but worthy, paintings to replace them with. In addition to those, I've added many new paintings completed within the last year. I've also reworked the layout, and overall design of the site. Hopefully, this will enhance the presentation of the paintings, and make the site easier to navigate. It will be a week or more, until it's finally ready to publish. The site is huge. I had never counted the number of pages before, but during this update out of curiosity I did, and found it to be over 250 pages. Thank goodness for Apple's iWeb, it makes the process very easy. Anyway, when it's actually up, I'll mention it in a future post, with a link for those who haven't been there.

I've also been working on some new ebay paintings. Red Crossed Shoes will be the first of five going up this week. Once all of these are set in motion, I'll be getting back to work on some larger paintings for the galleries. If you'd like to bid on the painting above, you can access the auction by clicking here.

I follow your work and I usually don't post comments on your blog because when I see your art work I'm speechless. What could I say besides how much I like it and how astonishing it is for me? Congratulations, you're great artist...
