Well boys and girls next Friday is First Friday and I get to be “the” artist guy for the evening then Ron, gallery owner, will hang all this new stuff for a month at Earthwood Gallery in Boulder. I’ve been a little bit scarce trying to get all done that I need to do so I haven’t been poking around in everyone elses blog like I normally do. Sorry bout that, I’ll get ketched up here soon.
The painting of the scare crow above is my offering of painting out side the landscape box. It’ll probably be the painting where everyone will say, “Boy! That’s different for you!” Yup! Zactly!! 🙂 Sometimes I gotta do something along some other line. Keeps me interested. No title yet.
This painting of the road (go figure) is a remake of a plein air piece from a couple of years ago. It’s 18×24 inches and the plein air is 12×16. The original was done on one of those warm winter days where everyone comes out of the wood work to experience the warmth because they’re so darn tired of the cold. I met a lot of nice people that day since every one was happy and didn’t mind stopping to tell me what a nice day it was. I didn’t have the heart to tell em I already had it figured out. 🙂 It’s for the show too. It’s titled “On a Winter Road”.
“Sun Spots” above is another for the show. It’s a 12×16 plein air from last summer. I was keeping it for something, wasn’t sure what, until now. There are going to be 15 or 16 paintings for the show, one painting from the old stuff , “Sun Light and Shadow”, a 30 x40 from an earlier post in this blog and anything I get get done and dry by Tuesday. Or close to dry.
And last but not least “The People Who Live In The Red House”. Another I’ve been saving for just the right thing. It’s a much better painting in person and is one of my favorites. I got totally into the brush with this one. 🙂 I wish I could get them all into this post but time and space are going to keep this post pretty short. The date for First Friday this month in the 3rd of April. There is a link to the Earthwood Galleries in the blog, upper right. Take a look and then come see us if you can.
