Florida Shows Await

After a wonderful Christmas with Gail and Tyler, I am back in the studio and throughout the last few weeks have been working diligently to get the Florida shows ready. This year we booked a condo in Boca Raton for the 12 days and the family is all going! Ty is helping with the shows and Gail has determined she is going "just to be with..." How cool is that! We're closing out a very successful year. And in doing so, reflect on all the warm and wonderful folks who made it so. Each one of my clients is someone special. I am always thanking the Beloved for the generosity and sustenance provided by the loyal and faithful. I add my hopes for a marvelous year for each of them... Here are a few of the smaller pieces (Bruce, these are especially for you to browse... that wall might be filling up but one never knows where you'll find another space to fulfill your collection....!) Happy New Year all!

New Images






I am working on the shows in Florida coming the first weeks in January but I took a detour for some playtime. I am finding these organic pieces much to my liking. The niche of appreciators is smaller because of the contemporary motifs but I believe these have some strong implications for the future of my artistic placements. These mark the addition of a style and manner I have worked on for years but have just never felt like I had perfected it as a voice. I seem to be finding, at the least, the tune. We'll see how the warbling sounds. More as they develop; I show these "in media res..." Love to all this bright season of hope and joy...

West Palm Beach at 78 Degrees

Well, the joys of selling art across the nation is sometimes I get to move from better to best! GA is cold with temps in 20's at night but Tyler and I are headed to Palm Beach FL for a weekend show just before our turkey gets popped into the oven. The show is at City Place, downtown, and runs Nov 22-23, 10 AM to 5 PM. We are looking forward to the usual drive chat and business idea discussions. Here are a few of the new pieces I'm taking... Also, just ordered the calendars for 2015 so if you'd like one, please drop a request to me: They should be here around December 10 and I'll get one in the mail to you soon after. There are First Edition Ornaments available for Holiday decorating at Richard Stravitz Galleries in Virginia Beach. Ask for Jan and she'll give you the info, price, etc. Meanwhile, remind yourself that you are loved and appreciated by the Barneses this holiday season. We could not do this without you...

Venice Show This Weekend

After a very successful Stockley Gardens Art Festival, I am back in the studio preparing for a show in Venice FL. The show runs Nov 1 -2 and will be staged on the main street in Venice. Looking forward to time with Tyler as he learns the ropes on the show circuit. He's a big help and has taken to framing and packing and driving along with some internet and email duties. I've never had this kind of service! Gail continues to keep me well fed and sassy. Together they form a support system that I can not do without, am continually blessed by, and forever grateful for... Here are some of the newest pieces to be shown...
