My Paintings Found a Home!

I don't generally post my non-jewelry/metalwork on here, but today I'm really excited, so I thought I'd share why!  While jewelry and metalwork is my primary love within the arts and what I do professionally,  I also enjoy a number of the other art mediums such as experimental digital photography, sculpture, and painting (as well as many others; I'll try pretty much any art medium and always eager to learn something new!).

 A few weeks ago, I contacted the college about donating some of the paintings I'd done while as a student there.  I've had them stalked up in the hallway of my house since graduating, and, as much as I love them, I simply do not have the space for them, and, as painting is not my primary medium, I'm really not able to properly show them at art shows/exhibitions.  It took a lot of phone-calls and e-mails to figure out how to go about doing this (I've never done something like this before!) and whether they were even interested in having them, but eventually I got it all sorted out.

So today, I had some deja-vu moments as I, once again, found myself driving into the parking lot of Delta College in university Center, Michigan. Seeing these paintings go somewhere where they can be seen and enjoyed means a lot to me and I can think of no place I'd rather see them at then at college where they were made.  I was so excited when they said they'd be happy to have my paintings! However, until today I didn't know who many of the three they were interested in that they'd take ...................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................  but they took all three of them!!!

So without further ado, here are the three paintings that shall now be in residence at Delta College:
