Since I Joined RB

Since I joined RB I have had 9 Features, 20 people watching me on a watchlist, 1195 people view my artworks, 245 people read my poems and a number of very positive comments. This is such a positive experience for me.
The only negative has been the computer system. As this is a visual site, having most of the pictures unavilable make RB difficult to work with. I believe once the holiday season is over. the computer system will return to normal.
Now, as for the holiday season, I am not a fan. Especially, when the temperature outside is equal to that in the kitchen. Australia is not my idea of Christmas cheer. That is just because I spent the first half of my life hip deep in snow at this time of year. I just want one day of snow, then I want it to go away. It’s not like I am asking fo…

Ocean Visit

I recieved another feature. This time with Acrylic Painting and “Ocean Visit”. I like these small abstract paintings. They are fun and fast and furious to do. They leave me with a feeling of satisfaction. Tomorrow I am going to my studio. I have no ideas, so anything could happen.

Little Stream

I just made a feature in Stream and Stream Crossings with “Little Stream”. That site is usually brilliant photographs, but my little painting made it through. What a feeling of relief I have. These paintings took me hours, so this is a nice rewaard. It’s silly, I know, but there is such a feeling of achievement with RB. IIt’s the recognition that is almost instant. Working in the Gallery system, the praise is small and short lived. With RB as long as you produce there is accomplishment.
It’s the producing that is the hard part. Drawing and painting take effort and time. It’s hard to always have creativity and time woorking together. My creativity comes in spurts. It is not constant. I can’t force it. I believe it is part of my mood disorder. I have Bi-Polar disorder or as it use…

RB Opens Doors

Yesterday, I went to a new art gallery in my neighborhood and showed the director my RB site. She was impressed and asked me to be in a group show in 2010. I also showed my site to my doctor and he bought a painting. The presentation is good and the quality is excellent, especially when the image is enlarged. It feels like my luck is changing. This is a positive feeling that I haven’t had for a long time.
I had a one woman show at the Meyer Gallery, Bourke St, Darlinghurst, Sydney in March 2009. It was a good show and I was very proud, but I only sold one piece. Now, I will do group shows there. The good thing is I still have a gallery. It was an excellent experience though, having a gallery all to yourself. All my work is still in Sydney, The gallery kept everything after the sh…

My First RB Entry

OK, This is all new to me. Another step foward into RB culture. So far I love it. I love the influence it has had on my art. I have been working harder, longer hours and with goals in mind. The different groups flavour my creativity in various directions. The stimulation is wonderful. The only negative side is there are not enough hours in a day to do all the work I want to acheive. I am hoping that all the extra work will cause improvement in my craft.
