Palm Island, 2013, Jo-Ann Sanborn
oil on board, 5x7
This little palm island is on Four Stakes, a prairie I visited earlier this year. The light was fabulous and remains in my memory. I hope to get back there soon!
There are fewer visitors to the studio in the summer, so I'll spend some time over next few weeks giving the studio a summer fresh-up. Here is just a partial list to get me started.
- Painting that haven't sold will be critically reviewed. Once in a while this will mean a make-over for a piece I thought was done, but realize later it can be improved.
- Frames will be examined to make sure that they haven't become damaged with the wear and tear of being moved around in the gallery.
- Shelves will be cleaned off and dusted, paintings and furniture moved, floors washed and light bulbs replaced.
- Paint and brush supplies will be inventoried and ordered. I know I have plenty of canvases, but will check sizes to make sure I have what I need plus some extras.
I enjoy working in an organized space and having what I need handy. My gallery space is welcoming, and I love having it ready for your visit. So please do--visit, that is!
