As a quick followup to the Hospice fund raiser onthe 7th…it was a big success and ever much as in previous years…a heartwarming note in the economic times of today. My piece was a the top selling piece of art for the event. It always does my heart good to have a grand sale at such an event for a stellar cause.
I have committed to a show at LaChateau Winery for the months of April and May, 2009. We are working on an artist’s reception date and are leaning toward the weekend of Spring Wine Release – first part of May.
Images of painting are now online at Etsy.com for selling giclee prints and on greetingcarduniverse.com for selling greeting cards. You can access my store by my name. GCU is very interesting – card buyers can access this website, chose an image and create a card for less than $3. A nice 5×7 card. Check out the sites. Etsy is an artsy site where lots of stores/artists sell their wares.
Soon the daily paintings will start again…they may be sketches some days; pastels another!

About bonnie griffith

I am a landscape artist who works in pastels, oils and acrylics. My work focuses on representational studies of the western US. I am basically self taught with lots of workshops and studies with several landscape artists such as Bruce Haughey and Clark Elster. I live in southwestern Idaho, am a native Montanan with a strong connection to the land. I spend as much time as I can in MT painting as well other parts of the northwest. I appreciate getting out in the field and working plein air because there is nothing like completing a painting in the true light of day and visually not being compromised by the use of a photo. In my work, my goal is to produce a piece of work that draws the viewer into the painting and challenges them to explore the scene; get a sense of the time of day, the temperature, the light or lack of. If I have gotten that viewer to step out of their reality and into that painting and enjoy it, then my work was accomplished as I wished. View all posts by bonnie griffith
