Evening Farm

This was the painting I did at the gallery this week. Although I like this, I will probably do another from this image. I took off from a photo of my daughter's.

St. Charles ArtWalk

I painted this at the St. Charles ArtWalk. It was a good time. I painted some others but I need to work on them some more. We had artists doing photos, art from video frames with enhancement, pastel artist, elegant painted scarves, jewely and pottery. This was all in Remington's which was the store I was in. They have a lot of floor space. There were more artists in other stores.

Last Week's Watercolor

Using watercolor pencils and regular watercolor washes. I love lilacs--the smell is fabulous.

First Remote Setup for the Graphic Display System

Did the Press Reception for St. Charles ArtWalk last night. My first setup with the Graphic Display System. Lots of physical work. Met interesting artists. I was worn out when I got home. Got a slower start going to the gallery today. Started a very simple free watercolor. Seems I can be more free when I am tired.

Getting It Together

I got a hand truck to load paintings and display equipment onto. I made some new business cards and updated my website with a new look. I did some Excel spreadsheets listing which paintings were meant for which show. Got cards and stickers made with prices for each piece. I need to get a receipt book and some bags. I am going to be disappointed if I don't sell anything.

Trying Watercolor Pencils

I have been thinking about using the watercolor pencils for a while . . . drawing and then taking water to spread the line in to a wash in places. I got to try it today at the Northside PaintIn at Hazelwood Community Center. Painting was a lot more delicate than what I usually do, but I really like it.

Made a Look Book

Put photos of my paintings into a book to take to art shows. Makes some that are not at the show available for viewing plus some that are. Sent my digitals to Wallgreen's and some turned out and some were cropped very strangely. Have to figure out what happened. I'm starting a new oil painting in my home studio. I am excited. Haven't started a new oil a home for quite a while. Got one going in the Artists of Grace studio though.
