Crowns - in Linus Gallery's Abstract Art Exhibit

Painting my heart out, painting out loud, painting outside the lines... so many ways to express intuitive painting. Over the past several months I've been totally into abstract. My love for color is deep and each layer of every painting tells a different part of the story.

Crowns 24x36 acrylic on gallery canvas, my favorite painting ever, was accepted for Linus Gallery's Abstract Exhibit and I couldn't be more thrilled. This (and most all other) was inspired by Jean Michel Basquiat... not his work so much as his approach to painting. Let it fly! Dig down to that primal place where the real essence resides - otherwise known as 'flow'.

I'm not using Facebook, searching for galleries, sending my work out. I don't know, it has been a personal process, and OK, so I have hundreds of paintings!! Next step is to do the thing - you know, website, social media schedule, etc. etc.  Have you done that yet? Wow, so daunting. And time consuming! And I really do want to send my work out into the world. There are so many successful artists as examples of what can happen. I find it very interesting that selling art online has become its own business - so many workshops, books, podcasts, webinars - all about getting followers, likes, sales, etc. - it's exhausting to think about. 

I'd love to hear about your progress, plan, success... please tell me! Also, I'd love for you to check out more recent work:

Love, blessings and hope. Always hope!
