I’m back from Italy, alas. I had a wonderful time and even visited France and Paris, where I liberally sampled the wine and enjoyed some wonderful meals! And I’m plotting my Italian return! Also there are still many paintings, photos, and memories  to post from Naples and Sicily and I’m busy finishing those and documenting them.

In the meantime I have embarked on a daily painting auction project. If you are not familiar with the movement this is the practice of doing a small painting on a daily basis and posting them on your blog. It has become quite popular in the last few years. It’s a great way for me to continue my  art-practice and offer small, unframed paintings directly.  The paintings at the top of this email are all small works I did this past week.  And they are available at an auction with a starting bid of  only $25-35. The auctions end August 19th.

So here is the first batch.  If you enjoy my work, and want to support my project, please pass my website and/or e-mailing list along to your friends.

Right now I am visiting my family in Tryon, North Carolina. It’s a beautiful area in the foothills of the Appalachians about an hour south of Asheville. It’s claim to fame is that it was the birthplace of singer Nina Simone. There is a statue of  Simone in the town Center and loads of friendly people.

And here is how they could look if you framed them. At this time the work does not come framed.
