Art Shows

Evening's End
Oil on canvas
5ft x 4ft

This is another one of the large paintings in the Clementine's show in December.  It may also reappear at the OASIS show in January.  The photo is not the best, but it gives you an idea of it.  I really have had fun with these large paintings, although it does make things tricky if they have to be at the house!

Art shows are funny things.  As the artist, you paint like mad, work out framing, which paintings will go, then either you spend time actually hanging them, or, if you're lucky, someone else hangs them.  Openings are fun events I think.  You get to meet people who want to see what you have done, and get to talk about your art a little bit.  If you're lucky, there might even be a sale, although times are tough right now for selling artwork.  But we keep on going, painting, learning, and painting some more.   I hope I get to see you at the opening!

I would love to see these big paintings in person and I have a lot of admiration for you that you are doing them. The colors in this one are beautiful and I also love the dog!
