After much waiting, and then toing and froing about whether I had the energy to sort out enough artwork for this little exhibit, I finally got my act together and this is the result.
Last year, my hubby and I agreed to a month each of showing artwork at a great little coffee shop at Pawtuxet Village. Bob got January of this year, but I had to wait until now - September. In the meantime, we've just come back from a hectic three week trip across the country which involved the setting up and taking down of artwork in two locations, and getting ready for a larger, more prestigious exhibit at The Art Corner in Salem, Massacheussetts at the end of September. Ugh. Not only was I low in energy, but wondering how the hell I was going to pull together enough existing paintings for not one, but TWO shows. I juggled lists of paintings for two days, dug said paintings out of cupboards and off of walls, and I finally had enough. I did wonder what was going to be the main anchor painting for the coffee shop show as the two I was considering were offsite at a friend's house, and he was away for the week. Pottering around, I found one large one I'd forgotten about - probably because I'd never been completely satisfied with the finished product and have every intention of repainting. This was "Marina" my Mermaid/Unicorn piece: you can see it above the mantle in the photo. So I finally had enough to fill the wall. There's a lot of older stuff there from recent years, but it seems to work as a collection. What would really be nice now, is for some of these works to find a nice caring home, otherwise it's back into the cupboard.
The show itself is at:
