Here I am, standing in front of my latest painting, “Wind Wolves Triptych.” It’s hanging in this year’s big annual group show put on by the Silver Lake Art Collective. I got it done just in time for the show.

I got a lot of compliments on this piece, and was feeling quite proud of it. It was my biggest triptych yet. But then I received the best news of all: someone wanted to buy it. Yay!

I just love it when my paintings find good homes. It is why I do this, after all.

I’ll be delivering it in person the day after the show comes down. In the meantime, there’s a lovely little red dot on the title card. That’s art biz shorthand for “sold.”

    Congrats on your sale Barbara! I’m sure that was a great feeling and especially while the show is still in progress too! I’ve never done a triptych but I really like the idea.

      Thanks Vanessa, it was definitely a great feeling. The other artists at the exhibit were very happy for me as well, and some of them had also sold some work during the show. All in all, a very good show.

I'm an artist. I make paintings with dots.

I work in acrylic paint, in a couple of distinct styles: landscapes and abstracts.

Native to California, I've lived elsewhere and only recently returned to my home state. I now live in Los Angeles.

I mostly show my art in outdoor festivals in California. I also occasionally show my work in art galleries or open studio events. You can see an up-to-date list of upcoming shows on my website (click here).

I invite you to sign up to receive my free email newsletter, in which I list my upcoming shows and talk about my latest work. I send it irregularly, a few times a year.
