I have posted this painting before on this blog, but I am bringing it forward again.  First, I have some news I've been wanting to tell you since THURSDAY, but haven't completed a painting since then.  I still have been painting every single day. I have four paintings in the works, and two are almost ready to show you, but I am not going to rush any of them for the sake of posting a new painting.  I'm finally ready to say "uncle" and post an older painting so I will have a painting to post with my good news!  I mean my super-fantastic news.  

Thursday, I got a call that I have been accepted to the waiting list for the Woolworth Walk!  I am so thrilled.  I have loved going to the Woolworth Walk ever since it opened, and have envisioned my art there ever since I decided I wanted to have a place to show/sell locally rather than just on-line.  The Woolworth Walk does a tremendous job with presentation, use of space, and lighting.   The staff there are always extremely nice, too.  You may remember, when I put in the application the week before last, they said it could take a month to hear anything.  It took a week and a day!  I am very excited.  Now, it could take months to get  a space in there, as I am basically waiting for someone else to vacate their space.  And I don't know how many are ahead of me for a spot.  Meanwhile, I will gladly keep painting and framing.

Watchers who are other artists, if you have read this far, I have a little bit of information you might consider a gift.  When it occurred to me last night, it felt like a super brainstorm:  ANY FRAME you like can be a floater frame for a panel.  Yes, any frame.   Take a piece of masonite or something else solid and paint it black.  Then, secure it in the opening in the back of the frame as if you were framing a painting the regular way for the frame.  Turn it around so the frame is facing forward and Voila!  A perfect floater frame for your panel.  Just make sure you have the frame cut slightly larger than the panel you want to frame.  If you all figured all this out years ago and are kind of laughing at me, that's ok....I would like to continue to think I had a brainstorm!

Happy Painting, everyone...

So congratulations! thrilled for you! you did have a brainstorm in my world. now this is totally weird. I can get to your blog when I get it in the mail from you but I can't Ethan to it if I type it in the search box. that's when it tells me I'm not invited.

Thanks you, all of you, for being so happy for me, it means so much. Sharon, that is so weird about trouble getting to my blog. What is Ethan?

Cathy Engberg said...

Wow! That is so cool! Congratulations on the Woolworth Walk. That is pretty exciting.
I love reading your posts! I know what you mean about "LETTING GO" or I guess knowing when to stop. Very tricky isn't it? I'm still working on that.
I do love this painting. The colors are clear and beautiful, and the brushwork is interesting. You did a great job. It's funny how we don't always see that right away.

Yeah Meredith! It sounds like you have a lot of great things coming your way and I am not surprised. Loving your work on DPW!

Meredith Adler said...

Thanks, Marcia and Cathy, I really appreciate my artist friends being happy for me! I apologize for taking a couple days to post your comments. I had to go directly after work last night to hang the show and I didn't get home till after midnight!

Congratulations Meredith.

Nice work too, by the way. I have peeked in a couple of times to see what you were doing in January. Great stuff.
