I decided that this year I would take small art trainings for fun. I took one through the Three Rivers Gallery on gold decorating of baubles. I did some and my daughter saw them. She asked if I would make them for her wedding favors on the Solstice. So I did! Then I thought they would make a great holiday card - and here it is. Some were shiny and others matt. That really made the gold show up differently but I liked both effects.
So - have a wonderful holiday full of fun and wonder!
I am retired and may slow down a bit on my painting as I work on other things. I have begun the second of my Predator or Protector series. I would like to do four of them. I also want to do a proposal to paint the electric boxes around Oregon City. (We will see if I can begin that one next summer.) So, there are always art things I want to do.
I love my abstracts of emotions of events in our lives. I will want to continue those too. But you never know what else will come up. Art it SO exciting!
Oh! I want to mention that I have an interview from a show on this website! Go up to the Favorite Links. My interview starts at about 13:08 and goes for about 4 minutes. It discusses 4 paintings.
Selected works can be viewed and purchased at my Yessy site. Sign up for my newsletter to find out about my upcoming shows.
TRAG Gallery - paintings in the TRAG Gallery on 7th and Center in Oregon City. I will be there demonstrating off and on through December 2014. Come visit! (If I am not there, another artist will be.)
Please join me in my art journey through my blog. I did some traveling of my own while working on obtaining subject matter for a series of paintings I am compelled to do. I am seeking interesting, romantic locations for painting beautiful young women with a male figure in the background. The series will be "Protector or Predator?" to portray the dictomy of relations between women and men in our world.
