I started two new pieces this week and hoped to get them finished and posted.  As you can see  I didn't make it.  Seems I spent more time on marketing and listings than on painting.  That happens. 

Saturday night I stopped in at the SDAI Summer C-Note opening, where I had 4 paintings.  I was told the buyer of A Day in the Park 2, had been waiting in line for the doors to open so she could be the first to get to the painting!  For C-Note shows, buying is on a first-come, first-served basis.  It makes for a lively and energetic show.  Loft 13 also sold, but I missed that one too.  They were both gone by the time I arrived.  The other two I submitted were A Day in the Park 1 and Toward the Light.  The show runs through June 19, so I hope they too will be sold!

Yesterday I had lunch with an artist-friend at the Contemporary Museum of Art La Jolla, cafe and visited 5 contemporary art galleries, including the Tasende, which I had never visited.  He sold 5 paintings of La Jolla at a recent solo show.  That's the way to do it!
