August Transition

"Hovering Beauty" oil on 10x8" canvas
"Gorgeous Gorge" oil on 10x8" canvas
The month of August was one of transition for me with the closing of Essence Gallery and Boutique in Old Town. Rather than frantically busy myself trying to decide whether or not I needed to try and find another gallery right away to show my art I decided that maybe this would be a good time to take a pause and relax and enjoy the summer along with regrouping and reevaluating what my priorities are.

Right before finding out the gallery was closing I decided that rather than have my paintings on gallery wrapped canvas hanging I wanted to frame some of them as I feel like when I, myself am buying art, I love to feel like I'm getting a really quality piece of artwork and the "complete package". For me that means I like framed art to hang on my walls. My first art instructor helped train us in picking out just the right frame to showcase a particular painting. Through New Mexico Art League I heard that "the frame guy" was coming to town and went and bought quite a few frames.  Here are some pictures of paintings I framed. I think they look so much better framed and now have them available for purchase.

"My Acoma" oil on 10x8" gallery wrapped canvas
"Folklorico Fun" oil on 8x10" canvas
"From Sandia Pueblo" oil on 8x10" canvas
"New Mexico Beauty" oil on 10x8" canvas
"Grazing Deep in the Caldera" oil on 10x10" gwc
These are only part of the paintings I had framed. I didn't want to overwhelm you so I will continue to update tomorrow in another post updating on some exciting coming events as well as newer paintings.
