I am in the homestretch on this banner! Overall, I am happy with its progress. The light blue button was not working for me so I decided to work on that one today. I thought that I was adding an iridescent white to the party, but I actually added Interference Green. I am so pleased with this result. Yay, a happy mistake – my favorite! I have to finish up the neon orange and teal blue buttons and then decide if I need to add one more small one in the bottom left side (maybe a gray/silver colored one?).
I am painting one of the banners that will be auctioned off at the Livermore ArtWalk. Each color of the rainbow will be represented plus the addition of a neon orange color. I am on an orange kick, so I will see how that looks. This is the largest canvas that I’ve ever worked on. It’s fun so far!
Hope everyone is having a joyful Sunday!
I saw figs in Trader Joe’s this weekend and just had to get them. Luckily, I am the only one in my home who loves this kick ass fruit. (all for me!) As I painted them, I was struck by the many subtle colors and tones in there. I’ll keep doing research on these yummy subjects – ah, the sacrifices of an artist!
Last night, I attended the artist reception of the LAA Spring Show. I was so impressed with the quality of art on display! There were many beautiful paintings and 3D pieces. The jazz band topped it off! Fun night!
If you are in the area, please stop by and support local artists!!
I had a fun time yesterday at the Pleasanton Art League Alviso Adobe show. It was nice to meet the other artists and see their incredibly beautiful artwork. Getting the Merit Award was such a welcome surprise! Off to buy more art supplies with the prize money!
Here’s another piece that I reworked. The original was a poured paint experiment that did not work out for me. With a little more paint, I am now happy with this one.
