Red Flower Painting - SOLD!

Topics: abstract art

I recently sold 2 paintings, this one, and an abstract painting named "Blue." Both sales were a result of my partcipation in Valley Hands - Watch Art Develop, in Northampton, MA. This is a new gallery/studio where artists spend time painting in public and exhibiting their work. I spent 2 days there recently, and as a result, sold these 2 paintings.

It was great for me, someone who paints at home and has little connection with other artists, to paint in that environment. It was a little intimidating at first to be so public with my work, but the support and feedback from others was wonderful. It was also amazing to spend that much time just painting. At home I often get distracted by the laundry, the cats or other things vying for my attention. This was just pure time to paint. That I sold 2 paintings is a bonus!

Check out their website at to find out more.

Thanks for reading. You can see other work I've done at

Thank you both. Valley Hands is only open on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I will be back there the weekend of Dec. 12-14, along with several other artists. It's a great concept.
