One thing which has encouraged me to get back into the studio was attending a painters' critique session yesterday at Nancy Gerlach's, run by Bert Yarborough ( http://www.bertyarborough.com/) who teaches art at Colby-Sawyer. It was a Strafford Artworks session, and we have utilized his excellent skills before by bringing in paintings with which we are having problems for him to critique. Yesterday I brought in two problem pieces, and one piece in progress, and he was very helpful and extremely encouraging to me. This got my engines started. Another impetus to head back to the studio is the nice fat check I received from East End Gallery in Nantucket, where I have had some success selling my work. I seem to have an admirer up there on that beautiful island--- the wife of the CEO of google, who has bought four of my pieces in the past few years, the most recent one purchased by her interior designer for their yacht. Here are several of them.
