Doing this little painting was a very freeing experience. No prior plan was formed other than the intentional painting of a red ground color. After that, color was dipped and put on the canvas. As the brush moved, the image evolved. In the end, the "sticks" and "spots" felt like something growing, so I added a sky and enhanced the details. It feels childlike and full to me. This painting is a 6x6 inch acrylic on canvas sealed with a UV resistant varnish. Its price is $115. It is one of nineteen on exhibit at the Exeter Hospital now through January 7th. Take a look at "Where you can find me in 2008" for my current shows. If you want to be added to my email list, click here.
Enjoy! And Happy Holidays.
This little piece pulls my head out of the current hectic pace and takes me to a lighter place. I look at it and love the "I'm having fun" feeling it brings me. My girl in "Do You Like My Dress" is now dancing her way through the Exeter Hospital corridors. Please, stop in to see her and my other 18 paintings that were just hung today. This painting is a 12x12 acrylic on canvas sealed with a UV resistant varnish. Its price is $185.
Our open house two week-ends ago was a blast. So good to see friends, have a glass of wine and eat a little sushi. Thank you to all who stopped in for the party! Now on to the Exeter Arts Committee's Annual Holiday Show. It starts tomorrow and is always a good time.
Happy Holiday Season,
