Year is almost over!

Thanks to everyone who has purchased or attended my pieces and events this year. I couldn't do what I do with out you! I cannot believe it has been 2 months since my last post. The online dummies project is a success. Thanks Joyce Pepple for this incredible opportunity!

I do plan as my New Year Resolution to paint and post more often... We are gearing up for the Stutz Open House and all that it entails! Wish me luck!

I promise to post new images of recent pieces as I have not been idol and have been doing more abstract finger painting!

Merry Christmas!

Stutz Open House

I have been busy with the open house but I have also been painting daily. I have some new pics to download and post later today. I have a new idea on how to display my 5x7 canvas boards. I have a card rack that I normally use for greeting cards. I needed someplace to sit my paintings and tried the rack.... it worked and looked pretty cool too! So now I have a simple inexpensive way to display all of the paintings! Plus it will be a nice price point display for those who want an original piece but may not be able to afford the larger pieces!

Can't wait to show you all! Also, I have posted some new work in my gallery over on ArtScuttlebutt.com. It is http://www.artscuttlebutt.com/jmknight.

See you later!

Radio Interview

Just listened to my radio interview on WFYI (wfyi.org) Art of the Matter. Went well and I think I sounded ok. Plugged my classes and the opening in April. Hopefully the sales will start soon too! Gotta go practice painting grapes. It is easy with a brush but with your fingers you have to work to keep them from looking like purple circles!!!
Cheers!
