LINDA S. GUNNWhere have I been lately?
Even though my cervical surgery and then COVID has kept me away from painting in plein air, I remained involved in the art world. Not long after surgery, two of my paintings were included in the Long Beach Museum of Art Bi-annual Live Auction. I’m honored by the museum again this year. In June two more of my older paintings will be hung in the Long Beach Museum of Art. This time it will be a Virtual Action.
Covid has brought about Virtual Exhibitions. They are easy to enter via a simple jpeg of a painting. I have been fortunate as well as honored to have several of my paintings accepted into virtual exhibitions. I’m thrilled that a few of them have received awards. The best motivation to keep painting! Spring is on the horizon and I’m looking forward to getting out of my studio to paint my surrounding landscape. It’s been two years since I’ve been able to paint outside other than my own yard.
While still a far cry from Transformerhood, I am, nevertheless, partly metal now with three titanium “boxes”, heaped atop one another, (my new vertebrae) and a set of hefty screws to keep them there. Another two of my rogue spinal links, just about shot anyway, have been rebuilt and are currently held together with who knows what for construction material (Gorilla Glue?).
