Sarah Ryan founded the curated site New Blood Art in 2004. Sarah also works as an agent connecting artists with galleries and as a consultant to find artwork for a variety of spaces. According to the site *About us* description, New Blood is an online contemporary art gallery that sells original work by rigorously selected, talented emerging artists.
So I am very pleased that she selected me for representation by New Blood. I look forward to getting to know her and to using my presence on the New Blood site to best advantage and visibility.

Feeling overwhelmed by all my collected possessions and books, I’ve sold many things on ebay this past month. So far I’ve made over one thousand dollars in sales. Many items going for a mere .99 cents, too. But getting unexpected high bids on other items. I’m glad to get rid of this stuff! I think it is and will help my art-making to clear out all this stuff from my home, garage and basement.
I know of artist who go through this phase, and I do consider this clearing-out part of the creative process. Elimination of the old and no longer necessary to make way for the entrance of the new.
I’m also going to try to sell some small paintings on ebay—http://r.ebay.com/14riQL

As I engage in these sales activities, I begin to think that I should make this kind of effort all the time. But then most times I hate to let go of my art!

This painting is from last month perhaps. I worked on this idea in several different forms, dissatisfied I put this one away. I’m glad to remove myself from it for several weeks. Look at it again with a renewed eye. I think it is OK. I like it even. Enough so that I have added it to my ArtFinder shop here.
It’s great that another Saatchi curator has selected one of my paintings for her feature this week.
