When I first began painting, I painted a work called "Purple Ladies" which was a hideously executed acrylic painting about gossiping. There were three ladies...one that was talking, the other with her head up to the sky laughing and the one in the middle standing with a look of distaste on her face. I've always hated it when I hear someone being talked about. It's one thing to speak one on one to a trusted friend about things, but it's quite another to blab in front of a group that may or may not have had the chance to make their own judgments about the person being talked about. So in my opinion, it's best to just keep the mouth shut.
So anyways, I decided it was time to cover up my ugly painting and paint something more positive. Now these ladies have the right idea...compassion. That is how it should be. Don't you agree?
I had this frame that I believe came from a thrift shop and it worked perfectly.
I took it to Tessera Gallery. Final Friday is tonight, but this piece is not on display yet because I was too late delivering it there. Life is keeping me busy...working in the yard, working on the next Finding Faith painting, creating new pieces for the gallery and most exciting of all was our youngest son's master piano recital last weekend. We traveled to Texas to see him play and WOW. He has really grown in his music the last two years he has studied at UT Arlington. We were in tears. If you are interested in seeing video from his recital click HERE. If you are short of time, you can forward to the last minute and a half or so.
I hope to finish the second Finding Faith painting in a week or so, but until then, here is a another peek. As you can see, there was a reason for that red flannel shirt. :)
