It has been a while since I i did a blog. I am back at it today, I have been painting pretty much straight all summer and into the fall. Painting less it seems and taking more time to complete them. Maybe its a old guy thing.
This painting I started the first week of September and finished it over the past weekend. It is from an old photo of the Grand Canyon. I was facinated by the morning shadows that were so quickly changing as I stood there and took pictures. I also minimized the shapes to interpret the shadows better. Shadows also have their own color changes and some are deeper darks then others. I wanted that in this painting, Canyon Shadows is 24x36 oil on canvas unframed. I hope to show this locally in January and then it will go out West to a gallery.
Uodates locally. I have art currently at the Ridge Art Association show called Transformation. So happy to have 3 paintings in this show. Western Art in Florida is not seen to much. One piece received a honorable mention award. Also have a piece in the Haines City Show at City Hall by Ridge Art Association. that won a award of Excellence. That show will hang for the year
until next September 2022. Thank you for these awards.
Out West in Arizona I have art At the Faust Gallery Scottsdale AZ. and in the Faust Gallery in Santa Fe New Mexico. I am very blessed to continue to be able to show my art locally and out West.
I planned a new trip out West this fall but things change and I didnt go . New trip maybe in spring of 2022. Stay Tuned.
Ok that wraps this blog up. I will try to be a little more frequent in the coming months. Take care and See ya!
