Today marks one week since my son was born. I still can’t do much so I’m writing this from bed while my littles nap on each side of me.
Okay, here’s the game plan:
As soon as I’m healed and have regained my strength I will be moving my studio back into the house, more specifically the dining room. I will be creating a new body of work after taking almost 9 months off! The works will be split up between two galleries, some going to ARTfusion in Bigfork, Montana and Blackwell Gallery in CDA, Idaho.
ARTfusion has been representing me for over a year now and has asked me back for a second! YAY! I will be trading out some pieces I currently have there for some work I already have finished as well as any new paintings I paint between now and the end of March.
The pieces I swap out from Bigfork will go to Blackwell Gallery along with any new paintings I make between now and the beginning of May. I have been asked by the gallery to participate in a “Visiting Artist” show opening May 11th – June 4th and if the work is well received during that time there’s a possibility the pieces will stay over the summer.
Of course, if you follow my Instagram (alissadurlingart) you will see these new works develop and find out which are going where. As far as scenes and sizes, I will choose as I go. Open to suggestions!
Lastly, I got asked to donate a painting for a raffle at my 10-year high school reunion. I can’t decide if those years went fast or slow. Its normal to be nervous for reunion, right? Luckily the painting isn’t needed till summer giving me lots of time to pick the perfect landscape for that one lucky winner! Go Broncs!
That’s all the art news for now, I cannot wait to get a brush in my hand and see what happens on the canvas.
