    Today I happened upon a new art gallery in Tubac AZ that wants to show my work. I gave them several of my best and am having them framed. I won't be able to eat for a month but in the end it will be worth it.

    Tubac is a seasonal tourist town like Jackson Hole WY or Cape May NJ. It's season is in winter rather than summer but thousands of tourists come and spend enormous amounts on mostly junk and some very fine local art including mine now, hopefully.

    Every once in a while the universe throws me a bone. Its been this way my entire life.

    Thats great news, very exciting!!!!!! Do go out and hustle and seek places to show your paintings or do you just stumble upon and they find you sort of thing.
    I think my wife should try to show some of her paintings, but she says she's not good enough. but i think she is just scared a bit.
    Congrats on the art work showings, thats super dope!!!!!

    Thx for the replies guys. I'm happy that even anyone takes an interest.
    I am bound at the moment to a dead end job and have no time to hustle. The luck of the irish and the networking I've done here will carry me further I hope.
    A local painting guild I belong to has gifted me a spot in a workshop taught by Andy Evanson. One of my idols I've been following for years. It seems the guild has a heart for struggling artists. That would be me.

    Your wife needs to become involved. She needs to put her work up against other and more talanted artists so she can become better. There will always be better artists than us. It's how we hone our skills.
    One show will lead to another and contacts made. It's a process. But it doesn't happen if you don't start with baby steps.

    Did I mention I got a gallery to represent me? He frames my stuff too. Kinda pricey tho. These are two I did, one was a redo the other a plein air painting just today. Im fascinated by the adobe garden wall in front of the house I live in.
