Black Grapes and Purple Lilacs

Black Grapes and Purple Lilacs
Oil on Linen Board

Black Grapes and Purple Lilacs is one of my new recent works that will be appearing in the Daily Painters Gallery tomorrow. If you have not yet subscribed to the Daily Painters, please take a look at some of these amazing works of art from artists across the country. It was such an honor to learn this week that I am now a part of this talented group. I am still pinching myself a little!

A few of my friends who have been on this art journey with me for years have asked how to get in, what is the process. I can share that I applied long ago and read over the site and its requirements carefully. But at the same time, I made a commitment to paint every day and keep working on my skills. I come home after a full day at work as the director of a medical journal in Dallas and I never sit down. After taking care of the puggies and eating a quick bite, I head straight to the studio, no matter how tired I am, how many conference calls I've had that day, or how much my feet hurt.

it also helps to have a supportive husband, plenty of iced tea and caffeinated beverages, and encouraging words from my dear friends like you. I do not know yet if Daily Painters is going to be a huge boost to my art career. But I do know that I am going to keep working very hard on my art, regardless. It is a passion and a calling. Sometimes it feels like this is just the beginning, I have so much more to learn.
