Hello Again

"Hello Again"
30 x 30, oil on gallery wrapped linen canvas
Available here:  www.GinaBrownArt.com

One of my resolutions for the new year is to get back to writing.  I love to write and share stories, but somewhere along the way a small voice told me no one is reading, no one is listening, no one wants to hear your stories.

But then, a few days ago... at a workshop in Columbus, Georgia, I shared a story from a blog post in the past. To see and hear the reaction of those who were listening, I realized, I need to keep sharing. If not for anyone else, I need to share for me.  That is, I need to share because of the blessing I receive from writing.  Because writing my thoughts down reconnects me with Jesus.  And hopefully, I can help someone else feel a little closer to God today with my simple little words.

This painting was a little journey for me. I sometimes push myself with different brushwork, or different color combinations... trying to grow as an artist.  Always trying to grow.

Much love from this Alabama girl to whomever may take the time to read this.

Plenty of painting time will be provided with one on one instruction and assistance.

I've been busy as a bee lately and I've failed miserably at keeping up my blog, and I apologize.  If you're on Facebook or Instagram, and would like to keep up with my work, please follow along as I post on both of those regularly.  I just returned back from two workshops in Georgia, where I had a wonderful time teaching in Tucker and Watkinsville. 

Also, I got news that my painting was accepted into the OPA Eastern Regional Exhibition. 

I'm taking the rest of this month and July off from teaching to prepare for an upcoming show in Gadsden at the Museum of Art.  The opening reception will be the first Friday in September.  (YIKES). 

Below I'm listing the remainder of the workshops this year.  To find out more about my workshops, please visit my website.
