I have just been given the opportunity to display my paintings in Jacksonville, Fl at the most upscale Antique Mall/Interior Design Center in North Florida. Needless to say, I am thrilled! I was given a wall on the main aisle to showcase my art. They were particularly interested in large pieces of art and I was happy to comply. It works well for me as my small pieces are in demand here in St. Augustine since tourists prefer something that will fit into their luggage. But for art shows larger pieces are in order. So this new venue is a great way for me to show and sell them after the art shows!
I forgot my camera when the art was hung, so I will have to return to get the display on film for the blog. Hopefully next week I can show it to you.
I painted another large painting the other day. I got the bug to start painting later in the evening and ended up going to bed at 4 am! You ever do that? Probably most artists do that from time to time. I was on a roll, so to speak, and didn't want to spoil it so I refused to stop! I got most of it done and decided to "sleep on it" and take another look in the morning. Well, when I did, I only made a few changes. Not bad, if I do say so. It is a tropical seascape that is colorful and peaceful at the same time. Meaning it has nice color, but not too much action! It measures 24 x 48 so it is sofa sized. Exactly what the design studio was looking for. Made us both happy! I have a picture of it below. I realized that I didn't get a picture after the final touches and there is some light glare, so I will get another and replace this one next week, OK?
But, I am far enough along that you can get an idea of where I am going with it, well maybe, and DON'T laugh, it is very rough! I'll explain more next week. Oh, and the camera makes it look lighter than it actually is. Until then, Enjoy what you see and Thanks for Looking!
