Before I Hide Away

There's one month left before my show Before I Hide Away opens August 11th, and I'm feelin mighty goooood! Here's the show card featuring my new painting "She Wears The Trees In Her Hair And The Clouds In Her Eyes" which will be part of the show. Opening night is August 11th at the Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City.
I've finished all the large paintings and now have just a few tidbits to do on two more small pieces and then I'M FINISHED (with the paintings). I've been working on this show since June '11 ~ it feels like an eternity (in the bestest way!) and now that it's all winding down and I see the end in sight, I'm getting a little sad...
This happens each time I'm in the final stages of a large body of work that will be swept away to tidy up at the framers, get displayed on the gallery walls and (hopefully) find new homes with loving collectors. It feels almost like giving up your baby (but probably not like that at all) but it's all part of the process. I love the whole process (even the parts I hate), I'm so very blessed to be able to do what I do.

Beautiful work, as always. I saw your full page add in the new Hi-Fructose a few days ago.

I have to admit (because I'm a mom)~ giving up a painting is probably the second hardest thing to give up. It is truly a happy yet melancholy feeling in your heart to see your work go off to a new "owner".

I'm sure your show will be a huge success. Your art is amazing and you are an inspiration.
