2017 – a Creative Year

Hello!  It’s been so long since my last blog.  I hope all are well.  This year is memorable for me:  Lots of finished paintings, some writing, some adventures, new people, new activities.  I am grateful.  I feel alive again! New ideas are beginning to flow.
From my Women’s Series….

This year, I have been more public with my work, entering competitions, participating in art festivals.  I prefer the making of art, but this year I have started to learn about the marketing of art.  Not so easy or profitable, but at times, extremely satisfying when a person really connects with one of my paintings, when my art speaks to them in a personal way.

Here’s another ribbon winner:  Experiment in Color No. 1, (Copyright: Linda Ruddy)
