"Hold On"

"Hold On" by Sandra Galda
16"x20" oil on canvas


I found out today that my painting "Hold On" was juried into a spring member's show at the Newburyport Art Association. It will hang in their gallery for viewing and sale most of April.  Check out the NAA web site here.  A slight fracture to my wrist while rollerskating with daughter's high school has slowed me down a little in the art department--it sure hurts. I have a hand /wrist brace with velcro straps to stabilize my wrist movement while it heals--I can still draw and paint.  "Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do" -Edgar Degas.  Thanks for looking, tell me what you think-leave a comment!

Congratulations Sandra! Your painting is wonderful. Sorry about your wrist!, that rollerskating with kids is dangerous, I once cracked my tail bone that way :-)

Hi Sandra,

Congratulations on the show! Not the wrist :-( I fractured my tail bone as well that way. I don't do it much anymore! I haven't been able to get into shows at NAA. Good for you! Maybe I will try again. Haven't been over to visit any blogs lately. I will have to get back into it because I love seeing your work. Love this one, and Mrs. Rabbit is adorable!
