|Patch Dress Traveler #2|
mixed media on 12 x 16" stretched canvas
I am not sure how many paintings for this series I will do, but I have a total of four canvases this size, so maybe I will call that good. I have exactly two more ideas sketched out. We will see.
Series paintings are challenging for me, I really just prefer to pick up a brush and go without a lot of planning. There is reason though for doing this again. Last October when I did the art show with my brother in-law, I met a really nice lady who is the art director at our local community art center called City Arts. She asked me if I would be interested in doing a show and of course I said yes. The show will be in Spring of 2014 which is long ways off, but I really want to get more comfortable with painting common themes. The Patch Dress paintings are my attempt at doing so.
For the show in 2014 I need to work larger (at least 16 x 20") and have that cohesiveness that the Eight in Payne's Gray series had, which will be very hard for me. I wanted to quit the Payne's Gray paintings after number 4! The last two nearly killed me. (Not really, but it was hard)!
Well off I go, but before I do here's a couple photos of the new art room with TWINKLE LIGHTS...minus the twinkle part. They add so much ambiance to the room and it is now beginning to feel like my space. My sister says I need a different chair...I think she is right.
Thanks for stopping in!
