It never even made it on the wall

I recently delivered a painting to the Madelyn Jordon Fine Art Gallery for inclusion in their “Summer Remix” group exhibition that opened last week.  As luck would have it, I ran into a friend who wanted to buy it two days before the opening.  They displayed the painting at the opening anyway but with the coveted red dot on the information label.  For those who don’t know, when a painting sells in a gallery/exhibition, the curator/sales staff will paste a little red dot on the painting’s information label to show that it has already been sold.  I LOVE when I see the red dot on a painting of mine as it means that it has found a good home.

Luckily, the gallery owner ask me to bring up a different painting to exchange out with the sold painting.  I’ve got my fingers crossed for another red dot!  The new painting depicts a magically mist that mysteriously dissipates to show a colorful bower just waiting to be explored.

Pushing another chick out of the nest

Exodus

More good news…I sold another painting this week to a previous collector.  Some paintings are harder to let go of than others because they have special meaning for me.  “Exodus” is one of those paintings as it is the first painting I did for my master thesis.  This painting tells the story of an autocratic society where the citizens’ lives are heavily controlled under the guise of security and “the greater good”… (i.e. “1984”)  Some citizens choose to risk escaping into the unknown, forfeiting a life of safety and order for the chance at personal freedom.  And I’ll bet you thought it was just a painting about seed pods!

Like the seed pods, it is time for “Exodus” to escaping the confines of my studio and enjoy the freedom of a new home.
