Today I happily dropped off 8 paintings at a gallery/framer in Fairhope, Alabama. It is a lovely place called Lyons Share. Check it out here. One of the paintings I left is below, called “The Seagull.”
I am sorry that I have not updated. You have to understand that I am distracted by so many galleries, events, and museums. So I will be catching up on Flickr uploads and blogging later on. This workshop has taught me so much. I will sum it up in one phrase: “Structural metaphor”
Check out the GCA blog for more of the recent events here.
It is really just a lot of hand-me-downs (crib, pillows, chair, bookshelf) but she likes it.
I am test-driving Imagekind.

Visit my gallery to purchase prints of my work:
This is the first time prints have been available for these images.
Wow, in the last 24 hours I have been so discouraged with my Etsy shop and recent personal work. Things just have not been selling, and I feel like so much of my work is void of meaning. The best things have been commissions, and I will continue doing those. However, my personal work needs growth. I am going to be focussing more on concept, and doing more preliminary work hoping to create a better body of narrative works and illustrations.
This is encouraging though:
Today’s article highlighting the art exhibits at the state fair. My painting, Rain in Bern, was mentioned specifically:
Lauren Pope captures the dreary rainy streets on Bern, Switzerland. The painting’s many shades of gray convey the dismal street but includes the charm of a passing bicyclist and street car.
Read all of the article here. It is funny to me that the author took time to note the influence that Pensacola Christian College has on this local art venue. Nice job PCC; perhaps this is your way of witnessing to the Gulf Coast artists.
A lot of wonderful people have been in my life giving and helping me. Now it is my turn to say thanks. Thanks!
I am having a serious sale in my etsy shop, so if you like oil paintings and are curious about ACEOs, take a look and find some PIFs and some low prices.
