Painting - Painting - Painting

Hello dear friends!  I know I haven't posted here in about 2 weeks, but a lot has been going on.  Some good news - I am now represented by the Bellus Lux Lucis Fine Art Gallery in Clarence, New York, and I sent Bonnie (the gallery owner and director) 6 paintings to sell:


"Apples" 8 x 10 Oil on Panel (220.00 Framed)


"Garlic" 8 x 10 Oil on Panel (220.00 Framed)


"Haystacks" 8 x 10 Oil on Canvas (220.00 Framed)


"Hope Road" 14 x 18 Oil on Canvas (510.00 Framed)


"Big Red" 9 x 12 Oil on Canvas (290.00 Framed)


and, "October Glory" 9 x 12 Oil on Canvas (290.00 Framed)

If you are interested in any of these paintings, they are available through the Gallery. 


I have also entered a competition - the BoldBrush Competition sponsored by FASO, Fine Art Studios Online.  My painting "A Charlotte Summer" needs votes - via Facebook "Like"  button by the painting on the site.   Just click HERE first, then click on See the Most Popular Paintings on that page.  That is the only way your Facebook "Like" will be counted.  The competition uses the Facebook "Like" button so that the contest can't be rigged with false votes.  You have to have a Facebook account and be signed in to vote.  Right now I believe I am third, so I will need lots more votes to win!  The winner will receive $1000 cash!  And, anyone who has been hanging around my blog knows that we sure could use the extra cash.  

Bob is still out of work, but just today he was at a job fair sponsored by Congresswoman Sue Myrick, and he introduced himself to several prospective employers and handed out his resume.  He is waiting to hear back on several interviews that he has been on in the last 2 weeks.



In the meantime I have been pounding the pavement and applying for representation by numerous galleries, working on commissions, and working on a painting of a group of cows that I am calling "Bessy & Company."  I might even have this painting done today.  Cows seem to be popular these days, and to tell you the truth, I enjoy painting cows. 


My last cow got rave reviews and was sold at the Matthews Alive Fine Art Festival last year.


So, the most important thing here is that I am very busy in my studio.  Bob has been busy doing lawn maintenance for neighbors and that's been good for our family as well.  However, I could really use your vote via your Facebook page by going to the BoldBrush Competition homepage, clicking on See the Most Popular Paintings from the homepage, finding my painting, "Charlotte Summer" and clicking the "Like" button next to my painting.  Every vote counts to helping our family get through these very difficult economic times. 

Thank you!!
