I enjoy looking back on my art journey to see where I was five years ago.
It helps me feel better about where I am right now artistically. In 2007, I created my first “serious series” of large paintings, called Urban Trees. I was surprised by their success. This beginning bit of sales activity helped encourage me to keep going.
I had a couple tiny exhibits at a bank and a health food store in Albany, Georgia.
I made some wonderful friends through the Georgia Artists Guild of Albany.
I enjoyed some local sales of my fire paintings as well, I believe they strongly reflected the shapes of the pine forests found in South Georgia.
The economy had yet to crash and burn, and my hopes were high about the future.
2007 Blog Posts
My blogging style makes me gag when I read what I wrote five years ago, but it is what it is. That’s the nature of blogging. I deleted all the other blog posts from 2007 – I just couldn’t stand to keep them up for everyone to see. Yuck !!!
So enough of the past. Happy New Year to all in 2012, here’s to new adventures, new creativity, and new artwork.
