In the last couple of weeks I’ve emerged into Monte Vista’s human population. I joined a couple of artist groups. This means I’ll be putting some paintings in shows and in the gallery that’s going to be run by the brand new Valley Artist’s Coop. It will open in 10 days and I don’t have a lot of paintings left from California. I sold several in 2013, the last year I was entering shows and I gave some away when I moved. So, today I finished a painting and I have another on the easel and I’m looking around for other things (no shortage of amazing subject here, that’s for sure). Everyone is really nice and I’m happy that my first step has been as a painter.
