October has already been busy for me. On the first, I was out at the Beaver Meadows Audubon Center, hanging up their Art Show for the month of October. I have a solo show of 28 paintings there for the month. Sales benefit the Buffalo Audubon Society and the Center. Go, see what I've been up to all this time!
On the evening of the same day, I had been asked to give the Alden Art Club a demonstration. I dragged about half of my outdoor painting/drawing equipment to the meeting and gave a introduction to the techniques and equipment I use for plein aire painting. It was, hopefully, entertaining and informative for the group. I enjoyed the time, thank you all for your time.
As many of you know, I closed the Gallery/Studio space on Broadway here in Alden, mostly due to the fact that I learned I wasn't the type of artist who can concentrate on a Gallery and still do my best artwork. I became a bit too much of a shopkeeper, finding myself looking out the windows and watching the door for customers rather that doing what I should be doing--making art. But I learned a whole bunch about running a gallery!
I am now back in my home space, getting reaquainted with it and making some changes to how things will work. So, with that said, I'm on the hunt for spaces to show and sell my artworks. Here in Western New York, I've shied away from outdoor venues due to the changeable weather here, so much rain! I am looking for indoor lodgings for my artwork.
