5th Annual Art Auction!

"Garden Joy in Red"
from my 4th Annual Art Auction
It's that time of year again (well, based on my previous auctions, it's PAST that time of year) where I sell original art for auction on eBay! THIS YEAR (my 5th year - wow!), it will be a little different...

Mark your calendars! Starting DEC. 3 - I will create and then auction on eBay 1 DRAWING (sorry, no paintings this year - but I still draw like a painter!) I will create a drawing DAILY for 10 days (excluding the weekend), ending with my last drawing on Friday, DEC. 14.

Why the change?

Well, as many of you who have followed my auctions in the past, it's CRAZY to paint 30 paintings in 40 days! I'm usually exhausted by the end of the auction, and often can't get the energy to paint again for several weeks - when I should be painting and preparing for the coming show season. SO... this year I'll be using the auction event as an opportunity to prepare by drawing out and thinking thru some ideas for my NEW COLLECTION of work the following Spring - fun!

AND... well, my kids are getting older! No better time than the present to cherish some holiday time and memories together with a little less craziness!

So, it's not the same, but I DO HOPE you ENJOY and have some fun! The countdown begins...
25 days until my 5th Annual ART Auction!

The NeverEnding Story Continues...


Hello? Hello out there?

I know, I've been away from my blog for quite awhile! Summer was fast and furious and unfortunately for my blog fans, facebook became my tool for quick updates. I have finally, MOSTLY, recovered from the insanity of life as a full time traveling festival artist, booking the most miles yet during my career - Yea! And so... as those of you who saw me over the summer know...
the NeverEnding Story lives on!

To recap: My plan for this series is to create a set of 128 blocks connecting together to form 1 tree - and not just 1 set of blocks! As blocks have been sold (even before I came anywhere near completing the first set of 128), I have been filling in the blocks with new subject matter (within the same tree). Confusing, huh?

In the End I will have painted...

  • 128 blocks of birds in a tree
  • 128 blocks of fruit in a tree (or vegetables, edibles...etc.)
  • 128 "critters" in a tree (mostly bugs/butterflies)
  • 128 teacups in a tree
  • and lastly - another round of 128 birds in a tree!
It's kinda like the game we played as kids where you sit in a circle and whisper in the ear of the person to your left some sentence and then wait for it to be whispered around the room until it comes back as something completely different in your right ear. FUN, right?!

So, how is this little project coming along? Let's see!

Here's the current state of affairs...
74 blocks painted * 45 blocks sold * 566 blocks to go

And here are the various completed blocks by subject matter.






I think this "little" project will take MORE THAN 1 year! We'll see where the winter takes me...
