In November and December, galleries know that people are looking for gifts, and they put out calls for small, affordable paintings.
"Baseball" is headed to the "tiny show" at Studio Gallery in San Francisco. Here are a few more small paintings that will head to shows if not sold before the November 1st submission deadline. If you are interested, get in touch quickly for a good deal! I will discount the price by the equivalent of show entry fee - so we both will save.
It's not every day your picture gets in a national magazine. In my lifetime, it has happened three times. The first time was during my first job as a marketing assistant for a teen fashion magazine in New York. The model they had booked for a shoot on DIY hair highlights didn't show, so they grabbed me and off we went to the studio. The original magazine is packed away, but I did keep one of the "out-takes" after the stylist took out the hair barrettes and let me shake my hot-rollered head with abandon. The second time was a few years later, when I was plucked out of fashion show audience at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York for a hair and makeup shoot for the young woman's style magazine, Mademoiselle. And now, (GULP) I am one of those baby boomers in AARP. Is this a symbolic journey -- from teen model to elder? In any case, it's been, and still is, a great ride!
The AARP article is about encore careers - in my case - using my marketing career to help artists promote their work. I've written a book about how I used my professional skills to launch my art career, and I work with artists on developing their marketing strategies, websites, blogs and social media presence. A quote from the article sums it all up: "I've found the perfect job because I get to do everything I love."
Thanks for being a part of my adventures!
