WOW! What a wild, fun ride this one was. Occasionally a painting comes along that says turning point! This is one. It is never apparent at first, just how significant or subtle that change may be. It could be apparent to even a casual observer, or it may remain hidden, private, within the artist, yet none the less significant, as it will change the work to follow, as it has changed the artist.

Now, here's a bit of news that appeared on my other blog, when it should, more appropriately, have appeared here:

What a rich, rewarding and enjoyable day I had today (Saturday) in the Bishop Gallery on Main in Scottsdale, Arizona. (The second oldest original-owner gallery in Scottsdale.)

Stimulating conversation amid a sea of art, antiques and artifacts! Among the treasures to be found there, this carved and polychromed figure of Christ along with Oriental, South American, Native American and Folk Art.

As for Contemporary Art, there's work by Leonard Baskin, Fritz Sholder, Ned Jacob, Luis Jimenez, and now, yours truly! So, whenever you're in Scottsdale, be sure to drop in and say Hello to my old friend Bill Bishop! Plan on a long stay, though, if you want to see even a fraction of what's in this amazing and eclectic space.

By the way. I got an interesting email from my dear, dear friend Gena this morning. It seems we both painted a Hopi clown on the same day. Hers is a Koshare, and she really nailed it. I hope you will take a look. It's on her blog:

NOTE:

I spent quite a bit of time recently, responding to comments on previous posts. For some unknown reason, most of them never showed up on the blog. I'm working on a solution. In the meantime, I hope all of you who have left comments here and on whenapaintersnaps know how very much your comments are appreciated and how important they are to me, especially when I'm tempted to falter.

It can be especially difficult to keep both blogs going on a daily basis while traveling. I can't always respond, but I always read and appreciate them.

I would love to see more dialog forming between those who follow my blogs and comment on them. Hint, hint.
