Open Studio Newsletter - 4th Quarter, 2008

Posted on by Wess Foreman

Hello, all!

It has been a while since the last newsletter, and I thought now would be a good time for a 4th Quarter edition with which to wrap up the year. Besides, I had a few announcements to . . . announce. Here they are:


Northshore Art Market - Saturday, October 11th
I took the summer off, basically, missing the last two Covington art markets. I should have many new paintings on display. So mark your calendars and swing by if you can and say hello!

Inside Northside Cover Artist Nov/Dec
I am excited to announce that I have been chosen as the cover artist of Inside Northside magazine's November/December edition. No joke. Pretty cool, huh?

Painting-A-Day Blog
I will be restarting my painting-a-day blog soon - probably next month [November], but definitely during the month of December, as I mentioned I would in the Inside Northside interview. This is where I will be uploading one new painting everyday to my blog [for sale, of course]. I will probably do this separately from my main blog, just to keep it simple - a link to it will be displayed prominently on my website, of course, at
It has been a long, hot summer. The kind of summer that makes you forget how cold winter can get, even here in South Louisiana. So, it was amazing when, a few weeks ago, the weather changed overnight, introducing the chilly mornings and pleasant afternoons of autumn - a season long-forgotten in my mind but remembered immediately with the first crisp intake of morning air to my lungs.

So, here I am. Relishing this great weather we've been having. Returning to the outside easel more and more often to put paint to canvas. The family is fine; all fine, thanks for asking. The wife and I are watching our son grow up before our eyes - he's two years old and ready for potty training and playing with Thomas the Tank Engine and jumping from the sofa to the pile of pillows on the floor . . . and life is great.

I pray that this new season finds you well. That you too are experiencing the joy of the changing weather and maybe recalling a time when life was simple and easy and new.
