Signed and delivered

The day I've been working toward for over a year is here. I delivered 24 paintings of varying sizes to The Center for Contemporary Arts today. Below is the last one painted for this show. 
A Little Close, 30" by 40"acrylic mixed media still life by Polly Jones

I'm full of mixed emotions - excitement, relief, vulnerability, and worry about will there be enough to fill that space. The emotion I'm hoping to settle on is serenity that I did the best I could:) I hope you will come see me at the reception on November 12 during ArtWalk! I'll be posting more details later.

From the Garden by Polly Jones
36" by 26" acrylic mixed media on canvas. I began this one back in the spring and finally finished it about a month ago. Predictably, now that I just uploaded the photo of it, I'm second guessing if it's truly finished! I've fallen a little behind in sharing work on this blog, but have recently updated my website at

Dear friends, thank you so much for your interest in my art!
