A couple of posts ago I shared with you a show in Atlanta that I was juried into at Anne Irwin Fine Art in Atlanta. The top three paintings here sold in that show and they asked for more work. I am mailing them the bottom three new paintings as well as one from last year. I'm so excited for this opportunity. It is wonderful to have another reason to make larger work but it also takes more courage.

Feature on the Moo.com blog

blog feature on Moo.com
Recently I was honored to be featured on Moo.com as part of a post on how artists use cards from their printing service. They discovered on Instagram a photo of the postcards I had printed through them. If you would like to read the whole thing in which I try to be eloquent and two other artists are featured...look here: https://blog.moo.com/inspiration/canvas-collectables-pocket-sized-prints

Anne Irwin Emerging Artist Show Tonight

Add caption
I should have sent this earlier. Right now a reception is happening for a show I have several pieces in at Anne Irwin Fine Art Gallery in Atlanta. Wish I could be there for it. They used an image of one of my four paintings for their postcard.  The other three I mailed them have already sold before the opening...apparently Georgia is my place for art! There are thirty some odd other artists with work that I've seen online - some wonderful art. If you live nearby I hope you will have a chance to check it out.

8" by 8" acrylic commissioned painting.
Dear blog readers - I hope you are still out there! I've been a sporadic blogger of late and have a lot of work to catch you up on. I won't share everything in this post but will save some for another day. These are all special paintings I did for occasions and commissions. 

I hope your summer has been wonderful. We have been busy with good things. A family reunion in Texas and other family trips and we went to Utah for a wedding and fit in a lovely brief time at Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons. I've also been painting in preparation for an August exhibit at Anne Irwin Fine Art in Atlanta and  a fall exhibit at The Center for Contemporary Arts here in Abilene. Haha, that made me tired to write all of that!

Hello everyone, I am sending these in a small size because there are so many to catch up with. This month has certainly flown by.  I took a week in April for working on some organization of old photographs but they are still a mess. It was so good to get back to painting. If you are curious to see these larger you can check out this page on my website: http://pollyjonesart.com/2017-mixed-media-paintings

I post most consistently on Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/pollyjonesart/ and Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/pollyjonesart/

Thank you for continuing to look at my paintings! Hope you are well and happy.

More and more spring flowers

First Bouquet, 20" by 16" acrylic mixed media painting by Polly Jones, Sold


Miss Ebbies Iris, 8" by 8" acrylic mixed media on canvas by Polly Jones, Sold

With Spiderwort, 8" by 8" acrylic mixed media on canvas by Polly Jones, Sold
I"ve been painting more flowers from my garden. Irises, spiderwort, roses and one last daffodil. We had a great time getting together with my brother and sister and their spouses this weekend. My brother showed me the lilac bush he was growing from a starter taken from my parents old lilac bush. Such simple and meaningful connections to our past can come in the shape of flowers. The irises I have were planted in our yard by a couple who built our house and lived in it for decades. I often think of how I reap benefits where I have not sown.  We have so much to be grateful for.

Spring Flowers with Tea by Polly Jones
This is the third commission I've done for a delightful collector. I'm honored to have commissions that have been a part of her Christmas from her husband the past two years. She always emails me images both from her home and some of my past work. It has really become a collaboration and I love her ideas. This painting is 24" by 36" and is mixed media acrylic on canvas.
