Another year over....

2011 is quickly coming to a close, only a few weeks left! Another year has flown by again. It has been a wonderful year of painting, and exhibits, and seeing old friends/artists, and of course meeting and making new friends. I have had the great pleasure of spending some wonderful days with very talented and kind hearted artists and gaining new perspectives and insights into myself and my artwork.

I have explored Encaustic painting this year, and have fallen in love with this medium. Acrylic is and always will be my first love, but Encaustic painting has a magical feel to it and it is such a different approach to creating a piece of work, that it offers a wonderful creative release. I have been fortunate enough to offer a few workshops in my home studio showcasing this technique and look forward to offering some more in the New Year.

I would just like to extend my sincere gratitude to all those who visited exhibits that I was part of, and to offer many thanks to all those who purchased my paintings. I am always so very grateful to have a piece of my work chosen and added to someones life, and as always, I am looking forward to another creative year with many new paintings to showcase at up-coming events.

There will be a new list of exhibits for 2012 published shortly, and I look forward to exhibiting my artwork again.

I would like to extend my heartfelt wishes to all for a very happy, healthy, prosperous, and magical New Year to come.

Peace, Robbin

Upcoming Shows for 2011

The following is a list of upcoming shows that I have applied too, for consideration to participate in for 2011.
Some have yet to be confirmed as to whether or not I have been accepted, as the selections have not all been completed yet. They are all juried art shows. The list will be updated and added to as more events become available. These are all wonderful art exhibits/shows and well worth visiting.
