Getting Ready

18" x 24" cradled wood panel.
Acrylic and Oil

Next weekend is a provincial holiday and I'm participating in an outdoor exhibition.  Rain or shine (and it seems we're getting both).  It's been a long time since I've done an art show outdoors.  I've come to realize though that it's not the success of the exhibition that matters but the work that comes from preparing for it.  The extra push to develop something new, often (not always) results in work that probably wouldn't have happened otherwise.  A slight departure from working on the small format "daily" paintings are the  partly abstracted canvases I'm working on.   I love pattern and texture and I've tried to work that in with the more realistic still life subjects that I am more comfortable working with.  It satisfies the part of me that wants to let

I started painting in January of this. year. I scour the internet daily for inspiration. My painting partner and I are concentrating on pairs. I just love your rendition.
