Citrine,

I like the art! I'm certainly no expert but I like the choice of colors that are calming and optomistic. It must be nice to be able to share your talent with others. Good Job!

Citrine,
Congrats on the art work. I agree with smileydog. I wish I had some sort of artistic ability. I'm a bit envious.

Cool art. I especially liked Blue Rhapsody. I also wish I had your talent.

Very pretty!

It is nice to know that not all of of this assembly are art-challenged engineers and military guys.

Dear All:

Thank you very much for the wonderful feedback!
My art would be a great hobby/business in semi-retirement....I hope I can integrate it sooner into my life as a full time one. But I am meeting all the right people and other artists and will be getting my studio situated tonight!

The show went well....it was a scary experience to let others see the work!
I am going to be curating a couple of shows coming up in November and December.

I charge .35 cents per square inch.....the prices range from $100-$302

Best of luck to you! Love the paintings---kind of Matisse in feel.
Did you ever try to sell on eBay? I bought most of my art work from one particular artist who I discovered there. She now has her own website because I think she has a big following now and no longer has to pay eBay.

Thanks Gumby and Bigritchie.....I would love to RE asap....but I have a few more years of the megacorp world....that is if this company still exists.

Very nice!

Being an engineer, I have no artistic ability. But when I see what I like I know it. This I like; very pleasing to the eye.

So glad to hear it went well!!

Yes, I know what you mean with 'scary experience'!

Was it a solo exhibition or together with other artists? It is awesome that new opportunities are arising from this!!

Ever considered selling online? - Do you know of this 'tutorial'? ::: blogging with the raw artist - Bravenet Blog (Very inspiring!)
