My art was just hung at the Red Trillium Gallery in Troutdale for the first time. Today I had my first sale – “Improbable Dreams of a Tree” found a new happy home. Thank you, Red Trillium Gallery!
Got a word yesterday that my 12 x 16 cm drawing made it to the 10th Twitter Art Exhibit that this year is helping Horry County Disabilities & Special Needs.
The show was going to be held in Myrtle Beach, SC but is now in limbo due to the COVID-19 outbreak. I do hope that there still be an option to buy the cards online like in previous years, no matter what the fate of the live show. Then we still do good and all is as well as it can be.
Every volunteer who helped with the show is very much appreciated, as are many artists who sent in their little creations.

My card for the Twitter Art Exhibit 2021 has been sold! The live one-day show happened later than originally placed, it happened the Cheltenham Racecourse and was a big success. There are still cards available at https://www.twitterartexhibit.org/shop. 100% of proceeds from TAE21 Postcards goes to The Leukaemia and Intensive Chemotherapy Fund – LINC. (http://www.lincfund.org/)
The series of foals that I’ve created for the Art for the Heart show has been sold. The show benefited The Arts Center in Corvallis, OR.
A lovely lady bought all three as a gift for a former endurance rider who has her own horses. Happy to contribute and glad that all three drawings will stay together.
It’s always takes a lot of work to organize a big art show, but this year is extra challenging because of the pandemic and many uncertainties that came with it. I am very grateful for everyone who volunteered their time and talent to help with #TAE20.
The 2021 call for artists just opened, and a new cycle of creating and helping has began! I can’t wait to be a part of it again.
Although the show was affected by the COVID-19 outbreak, the Alberta Street Gallery managed to sell 29 small artworks. One of them was my “Blossoms I.”
I am sure there would be more happy visitors and buyers if things were normal. The gallery is going to do the show again next year, and I can’t wait to be a part of it.

Relations II and IV are on their way a new happy home in Silicon Valley, CA. Thank you, Vickie! Both are 8″ x 8″ mixed media on stretched canvas.
Both are 8″ x 8″ pen and ink drawings of Japanese maples in spring, with young leaves not fully unfolded yet. Each drawing sits on top of a paper collage secured on a stretched canvas.
Sadly, I missed the reception for this show because of the trip to Russia and didn’t have time to see it before leaving, so had to check it out after coming back. This was one impressive show, and not just because I love small works of art. It’s fascinating to see what different artists can do with the same set of four square canvases, how different their styles and subjects are, and how beautiful the walls covered with 8″ x 8″ squares look.
All my creatures were sold. Hopefully they all are sharing the same happy home now.
Sharon Orella, the show coordinator said that my artworks were very popular and sold very quickly. That’s very nice to hear; I hoped that my creatures would connect with people and be appreciated for their beauty and character.
