Good morning. Just finished a walk and a daily study so wanted to talk a bit. Arroyo is the latest 6x6 I did for the miniature and small works show starting next week at the Ridge Art Gallery in Winter Haven Florida. I found that small works are really a good way to test your patience and give a lot of satisfaction in a short amount of time.
The studies were done the last two days and studies are really a good way to get to the brush and paper daily. They are studies so they aren't your best work always but they can be. I think to , as I walked the lake today I thought of the need to paint daily has really grabbed me. Not all day but a few hours or more keeps your head clear you relax and you enjoy the love of paint and brush.. Artists realy have to stick with it to keep a level that they want and not just a few hours a week. Thats my opinion only.
Ok lots of shows coming up. The Melvin Gallery show is starting in May. It is juried. The miniature and small works is in Winter Haven starting next week at the Ridge Gallery which is also juried. RP Funding current has a juried show and it will be up till April 23 and then will be replaced with another juried show. So if you like art or are a artist lots of shows to enter and enjoy. Get out there and support the art community.
Have a blessed week and see ya!
