After seven years of painting, painting, drawing, chalking, painting some more, giving art away free, showing up to meaningless events, Facebooking every hiccup, schlepping canvases around - this baby bird of an art career is flapping wings and catching a little lift! Some very encouraging sales from the solo exhibition, and now a real live brick & mortar gallery in the trendy arts district of Tampa (Ybor) wants the circus paintings. Going straight from gallery (a) to gallery (b) with no depressing sulk in my studio in between. Very pleezed. Life is good.
