Ready for a Show !

This has been a full and exciting year full of art opportunities. Changes in the economy has let to changes in the art community, galleries and the market . Artists like myself have long conversations about pricing, opportunities and still we all agree to continue to paint paint and paint some more ! Having my very talented friend Ziya move to Austin is fantastic for so many reasons ! We both love to paint, love to show and plan future shows ! We are taking a deep breath and ready to jump into our paints !
