So Many Details!

Today was a day to work on paperwork and help one of the artists that will be participating in the show with experimenting. Experimenting is always fun and we come away better and wiser. Such is life....One of the artists in the show, Phyllis Sharpe, is trying a new technique that has been fascinating....she has painted two paintings that are called saturated watercolors. She is now mounting the watercolor papers on canvas, and going to seal the works with varnish and cold wax. She will not have to cover the watercolors with glass, but will be able to hang them as an acrylic or oil painting. She has worked so very hard and has been so willing to risk in order to grow in her skill level. I am so proud of her! I have included a photo of one of her pieces. It is called "Stillness". The photo does not really show the subtle changes and motion that you can see in her painting....It make me feel as though I am under water and swimming to the top, about to break through the surface....what do you see?

We are still looking for a venue for April and July and I am sure we will have them in place soon!
I am so excited about where we are heading! I know it is going to be so worth all of the effort.
I now have about half of the pieces here, waiting to be sealed up and ready to travel...we will get the paper work in place first of the week.....what a wonderful team I have...isn't it great that we
get to walk through this life with friends!?

  1. 'Tis true subtle changes in so many paintings can only be seen standing in front of the piece. Photos never show it.
