With everything that’s going on, and there’s been a lot: a show opening on Monday, two new projects beginning next week, a couple of commissions, getting framing and materials together, even a bluegrass gig where I fumbled through barely remembered banjo tunes for a couple of hours in sweltering heat, but somehow I managed to paint another one. And I really like this one. It’s simple and fun, and it’s titled “Journalist (Bewick’s Wren)”. A very sweet little painting, it’s 8×10 and acrylic on textured Clayboard. A commission for a couple of friends, who supplied all the props.
If you would like to know more about my show (alas, no opening party!) and would like to see what a wonderful job that the Oklahoma Arts Council does in mounting and promoting an exhibition, go to this website: http://www.arts.ok.gov/capitolart/gg.html
And today’s Oklahoma Gazette came out with a very fine article about the show as well, written by Steven Kovash titled, “Exotic Imagery”. He talks about the process behind the pictures, and it’s pretty in-depth.
Anyway, all in all, a nice day filled with surprises and even a little progress.
