Well, I think this design is so cute. I just created another online store at cafepress.com called It's My Time. Isn't that a great title? It reminds me that my time is my own time, or at least to seize control of it in that way. I think it is also a cute design for expecting mothers. Check it out at http://www.cafepress.com/itsmytime.

I have ordered my over sized postcard to send to galleries seeking representation for my southwest landscape paintings. I placed my order with vistaprint.com. They will come in around Jan. 28 at which point I can begin mailing them out. I researched Tubac, Arizona yesterday. I will research Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Las Cruces this month. In that way, I'll have a list of galleries prepared for mailing when I do receive my postcards.

ARTIST STATEMENT ON POSTCARD READS: Since moving to the Southwest in July of 2006 from the Northeast, I have redirected my painting from inner symbolism to observation of the outside world. In pioneering mode, my new art is an adventure in exploring, seeing, expressing, expanding possibilities, and discovering new frontiers. The southwest landscape has captured my heart and imagination. I honor Nature in every new painting that I make partaking in a joyous symbiotic love affair. I work in oil, acrylic, and mixed media. I prefer working large (36" x 60") and am creating small works right now (8" x 10"). Mary A. Gravelle

I have completed 19 paintings since I left Connecticut on July 1, 2006. These were new painting adventures changing my style from abstract symbolism to outside observation of the southwest landscape. I don't know if that sounds like a lot to any of you. Believe me, it is a lot considering I moved cross country from Connecticut to Tucson, Arizona and then to Silver City, New Mexico where I have moved three times! This includes packing, moving, and two storage spaces. I have been mobile and yet have remained committed to my art.
<--> In addition to the art, I have fallen in love four times and broken up four times! Talk about creating and moving on ..... Whew, what a year!
