I lost two angels but gained two more ...

I bid you adieu!
.  

And adieu to you, too!



After a particularly trying day, which I shall not go into here, a couple from Pittsburg stepped into the gallery 10 minutes before closing.  We had lovely conversation and a nice visit, they were so very complimentary about the art and gallery. Before leaving they purchased two of my angels, which I never intended to actually sell but rather use as examples, but due their great enthusiasm for them I agreed to sell.  After they left the gallery I began gathering my things to leave when I spied their receipt still on the counter.  I made a mad dash to the parking lot and did not see them, and then to my fellow merchant's businesses hoping they were still in town, but alas they were nowhere to be found.  I returned to the gallery and re-locked the door and a couple minutes later spied the gentleman hurrying quickly toward the door.  Grabbing the receipt I unlocked the door and announced I was so glad he came back for his receipt! He said he had not returned for the receipt but rather drove back hoping I was still there because he and his wife couldn't possibly go back to Pennsylvania without also purchasing two of my abstracts they had been looking at before leaving the first time!  
I bid farewell to my two angels, but gained two new ones!  Godspeed!

Muse


This charcoal sketch was created last night from a photo of my muse. 
I caught a moment as she was heading out the door, I only wish I had the time to paint her right then and there.
Here is hoping your memories last forever.

Sometimes we all feel this way...


SOLD
Feeling a bit overwhelmed?  With so many demands upon our time these days it is imperative we find some time to nurture our body and mind with peaceful endeavors.  Curl up with a good book, take a walk, run, play a video game, do some yoga, listen to soothing music, sit outside and watch the birds, work in a garden, do something that does your mind and body good, bring about some peace. I usually unwind by drawing.  I haven't had much time for drawing, but the week is young.  This is my most recent  drawing, an angel from Cemetery Staglieno, in tinted charcoal. So much inspiration from great sculpture.
Spring is on its way as evidenced by the daffodils and tulip trees in bloom.  I am my happiest in the springtime, a holdover from my childhood.  Enjoy your week, and should you find yourself a bit stressed do take some time for yourself to do something just for yourself, re-energize, it really is important to your well being.

Heading toward spring!



No sweeter time to me than springtime.  It is the hope of renewal after the long silence of winter.  The songbirds will soon begin their celebration of impending warmth upon their wings, and for their human counterparts their heavy coats will be replaced by lightweight jackets and sweaters.  Oh springtime, you have no better friend than me.
This abstract is available at the gallery,  I thought of violets when I painted it.
Come visit and view it along with works by fabulous artists such as Deb Kaylor, Cindy Wilbur, Marsha Hamby Savage, Virginia Dauth, and Bruce Bell.

Exqueeze my tardiness!




I cannot believe it has been so long since my last post! Christmas has come and gone, we are nearing the end of the first month of the new year, and I am finding that running a small gallery takes an incredible amount of time in greeting visitors, installing work, answering calls and emails and posting on social media - all part of my day.  It has been a great learning experience being on the flip side of the coin.  My new discovery, old for a lot of you, is Instagram and I am finding it a wonderful place to post our gallery artist's work. You can find me under my full name, Tina Steele Lindsey, on Instagram.  If you wish to learn more about the gallery I am including the gallery link, HERE,  I will continue to use this blog to post my own paintings and drawings as I have always done.
As far as my own creative juices I have managed to begin a couple paintings as I have a little studio section off the rear of the gallery building in which to work.  At the top of the post is a recent drawing, thank you for taking time to visit my blog.

Well hello old friend!


 I have not seen this painting since it was shipped years ago, and there it is in a beautiful room designed by Nancy Price.  This photo is via The Scout Guide - Feel Blue: In Praise of Navy.
