good news and bad news





I'll start with the good news first. I have been extremely lucky this past few months and have sold roughly 10 works( images posted above ) I'd like to thank all the people who support me and my efforts in production
I feel truely blessed I've come to the conclusion that it is very important to me to create for the public ... Meaning creating works that are accepted and liked & sometimes bought :))
I am also aware that a true artist paints for the love of art and it's personal journey of discoveries Painting is this for me as well.
I've had a few health problems in the past and it seems they have not been rectified. My posts have been few for this reason I may have to take a rest from painting until I feel stronger
For those who follow my blog... I'll do my best to post if I produce any new work. On a positive note, the medical mystery may be solved for me.:))

I am not much of an electronic communicator and your blog prompted me to start something although I feel I am a pseudo artist at this stage. As for your art, it is always inspiring...and I hope to see more of it in the near future. Prompt rétablissement! Bonne chance!

Amber, I will reciprocate: you will be on top of my list...once I get my act together with Blogger. I hope to be able to see your work in person one of those days... I have been in your neck of the woods a few times and I know a Leblanc from Shediak...so I think I will be accepted as a stranger :) As far as my art is concerned, I seem to belong to the "pretend you are an artist and act accordingly" category for the moment!

Ahh that is a wise comment about acting accordingly It is honest and non pretentious. A very good thing!!!

Amber, I think there is a special thrill in making art for the public- it's an exchange when they 'get it' and love it. It's also an educational process- getting people involved in art at a place where they don't feel intimidated. In the end, that benefits the entire art scene.

Sometimes work that alienates the public gets the most attention and I believe it must have its place, but it still has to come from the artist's heart and not simply be a gimmick.

Congrats on doing so well and touching so many people! Take care of you :)

It's good to see all those pieces together, but sad to hear that you are not well. I pray you are healed soon.
