This is the completed new work entitled “3 Peonies”.  It's an oil on panel work, 32 x 24 inches, with a beautiful modern dark frame which really sets if off nicely.  I'm very pleased with the way this work came out, and I think I'm onto something very important (for me anyway).  The addition of the Sennelier's Cool Grey neutral to my palette really made this one sing — the movement of light across the flowers is quite nice.  Its my most luminous work to date.

I feel that with this new painting completed that its about time I seriously get down to the business of securing gallery representation.  God knows that this is a daunting task, full of as much rejection as applying for employment, and I'm not even really sure how to proceed.  I've researched quite a bit about contacting galleries for representation using mostly online resources and reaching out to other artists for advice and support.  Some have stepped up and put me directly in touch with gallery owners, others are more guarded, and I can certainly understand that.  All I know for sure is that I'm tired of collecting my own art and would rather it be in the homes of collectors and patrons.  We'll see what happens.
