Hello everyone!
I just wanted to check in and tell you what's going on in my "painting" life.
Today I finished a larger version of the small painting I posted yesterday. I also underpainted a 24x30 fall bouquet on a red background. I finished two other pieces, I think they're probably 8x16. I'm ashamed to say that I didn't even notice the size! I was going through photos and found two that inspired me, so I just grabbed the canvases and started painting. One is a purple window with hollyhocks (I've painted this for other shows, it's pretty popular). The other is a sunset with mountains and rolling hills. I will outline those tomorrow, finish the red bouquet, and FINALLY start those aspens. I think I'm putting that one off because of the outlining involved. My husband keeps asking, "Haven't you started those aspens yet?"
Tomorrow I will also get everything ready for my day trip to Taos on Sunday to paint in the Taos Center for the Arts QUICK DRAW fundraiser. I'm debating on whether to take oils or acrylics. The painting has to be ready in two hours, so no outlining will be involved. I'm thinkin' oils. I'll just paint a very colorful wild mass of New Mexico flowers. That should be fun. Painting with 44 other artists, all of us in the same location, should be a blast. I'l try to get some video. Anyway, if you don't hear from me for a day or so, just remember, I'm working hard and I'll post as soon as I can. Love you guys and thanks for being so supportive.
