Well this was a big day over here. Not only did I have to wake up early but I had somewhere to go. Who knew leaving the house would be an event in itself. And, I did it right, hair, make-up, a new dress and jewelry too. It was a big event so I wanted to celebrate the moment.
What was the big event? I had to be at <a href=”https://venturaharbor.com/directory/harbor-village-gallery-artisan-store/” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>Harbor Village Gallery & Gifts</a>
To deliver two paintings. The last time I showed my work was March 2020. That feels like a hundred years ago now since so much has happened.
It was very exciting seeing the gallery again and people were in there shopping too. I am a hermit crab and have barely left the house so, it was a little jarring seeing people, other than family members. Socializing, that will be a while for me since my voice is still gone and my lungs get sore from walking or talking too much. Walking and talking people! Who knew you could age 30 years from the flu? I didn’t.
Anyways, it was nice visiting briefly, mask to mask with friends. and There were a lot of beautiful paintings in the gallery, as well as mine. I was giddy at dropping off my work. I know not everyone can make it to Ventura Harbor Village, so I thought I would share with you my photos. I hope people get to see it in person because my photographic skills are pretty basic. I couldn’t figure out how to shoot “Pretending to Drive”, a 16 x 20” oil and cold wax on canvas painting, to capture the sheen. That was annoying. My lungs limit my movement or I would have gotten it right.
One day I will get lights and photograph in the studio but that takes more money than I have right now. One day. One day.
Anyway, thanks for stopping by. The show runs from July 24th (hey, that’s my birthday) through to September 14th. I am so grateful to be showing again, even if it is just two paintings, it’s nice to have my artwork out there again. I have a mountain of paintings both physical and digital that I am trying to finish up but more on that later.
Take care and remember, you look darn sexy in that mask.
