I finished up two paintings in the Italy series. I hope you don't mind me working so hard on getting this exhibition done.
I have a great venue and deadline now -- to keep me focused.
I was finished with the work last spring... but when the curator saw the work.. and wanted to feature it at CEDARHURST MUSEUM .... I was compelled to continue on.
I didn't have enough paintings to fill 3500 sf. so I needed to paint additional works to flesh out the space.
I've never done a show with so many pieces~! AND...I'm adding more~
It will be a visual feast: a variety -- sizes, shapes, palettes, images.... just like a regular presentation of travel~
however.. I MISS my watercolor.. and I'm looking forward to painting the EVERGLADES and OIL DISASTER.
But first... must finish my Italian Series--- completely.
Two large panels came in the mail yesterday -- and I will be beginning those shortly.
I am having a ball developing this exhibition -- and LOVE showing it. I am however, very guarded with who gets to see it in person .... I want there to be a surprise-element next winter. I am also digging sharing it online.. and having my online-artist friends interject their comments and criticisms. Wonderful to have everyone participate in the process of bringing this show together!
