First ever artist residency - check!

For two weeks last month I had the opportunity to really focus on painting full time at Zero Foot Hills artist residency, Durham, CT.

I guess the answer is just to keep plugging away and seek out more opportunities, and have faith that if I work hard and smart, the income will eventually follow. I am grateful that my job allows me the flexibility to do that. Here is a painting that I didn't add to the shop. November is gloomy and beautiful in Connecticut:
