New Web site is up and running!

Alright bloggers, it is offical in case you haven't heard. My first website is up and in operation now. I can actually market all of my stuff I have been working on. If there is something you have been wanting, you can now have it. Go check it out,(http://redeartharts.com/) if you see something you think I can improve on then please leave me a message in the comments. I always appreciate comments left by you guys.

Still working toward having Marten with Native American Art web site finish up with my web page there as well. I need to get my wife to take my picture along with some of my prints for that site. If it is good enough I may put it on my web site as well.

Everything is a go with the Art center gallery showing in April. If you haven't made plans as of yet, then mark your calender for my very first gallery showing for the whole month of April at the Ponca City Art center. I will find out the dates on everything and will be posting it here. I know there will be a reception the first day. You will know when that will be.

Once all this excitement passes, I will be working once again on the 7 clans paintings. I still need to do the Beaver, Bear, Pigeon, and Buffalo. Hopefully have those paintings done by the gallery showing.

Christmas wish for everyone!

I pray and hope that you will have a place to go where you can join together with friends and relatives tonight and tomorrow for this time of our Creators birth. Maybe get something to eat. Be careful if you are driving somewhere. Wishing you a Merry Christmas.

My wife and I send clothing packages to Lakota Reservations in So. Dakota for children, that they may have something to wear during the cold winter months they have there. I also know it is almost impossible to reach every child there that is in need.
We try though.

Also want to wish you a safe and Happy New Year.

Eye of the Eagle

7 Clans Series painting of the Eagle Clan. My thoughts for this painting took me outside the box, for my relatives and friends of the Eagle Clan. I envisioned something completely different than what I actually put down on the mat. My Mother is of the Eagle clan. As a child I would dream sometimes of being able to fly. I would often wonder how the view would be for the Eagle from his point, being so close to Heaven. Enjoy!

Everything is a go for the Art Gallery!

I didn't want to post anything until I had confirmation from the Director of the galleries at the local Art center. Today he told me that I have been accepted for my own gallery. He mentioned that it would be in April. We will need to meet and work out some details. Otherwise I will get some frame work done for my prints I have up to this point, and will continue creating more art work.

I believe there will be a reception on the first day of the gallery, so everyone can come join me as I celebrate life with my art!

Lifetime waiting for this moment..

When you find great emotion that drives you to want to paint, and keep on improving from where you began, and never looking back, then after awhile you all of a sudden find yourself in a place, that now people want to see what you have been doing. My friend Dave that prints my work for me, went to the local Art Center, and mentioned me to the Art Directors. Now they are wanting to meet with me this Sunday. I will take my portfolio in and see where this is going to lead me. This will give me an opportunity to ask them some questions as well. Like having my work appraised!

Hopefully this will lead to my own gallery show. If this happens, then I will be acting like a kid going to Disney Land. Not really knowing how to act! It's good to have friends and relatives. In case you can't tell, I am excited!!!

Edit: The meeting went very well today. The chairman of the galleries said he will present my paintings to the board for their approval. This will be decided on Monday. So I will know something by Tuesday.

7 clans Owl painting..

Ron Jones a professional photographer, took the picture of the owl sitting in the tree. He granted me permission to use his photo as a source picture to paint from. The overall painting turned out pretty nice. I am pleased with it. It is actually my 3rd Owl painting thus far. Now off to see my partner Dave, for some print work. Thanks for looking.
