On the “easel” today are two small portraits:
These will hopefully be in my Etsy shop by Monday.
Tonight is the reception at the Pensacola Museum of Art. I have never been able to attend any of the competitions that I have entered work into. This will be a new experience to see my painting hanging in a gallery. I will be sure to get a photo or two.
The Pensacola Museum of Art Members’ Juried Exhibition reception is tomorrow evening from 5pm to 7pm. It is free and open to the public (art, food and beverages for all). My painting of Flannery O’ Connor will be hanging in the show. If you are in town, I hope to see you there.
In October a new exhibit will be in Pensacola:
Duane Hanson (1925-1996) became famous for his lifelike sculptures of common people that were cast from live models, then painted in great detail and finished with hair, clothing, and accessories. Hanson’s work is often mistakenly thought of as simply a form of extreme realism, but in fact it grew out of a highly developed social conscience.
That sounds fun. I can’t wait to see what my 2 year old son will think of those sculptures.
I mentioned before that I would love to learn to screenprint. I love the medium for its unique ability to allow the artist to convert a sketch into fully rendered art. An example of this type of screenprinting is seen in Jay Ryan‘s posters.
The Jeff Tweedy poster below was my gift to my husband for his birthday. Now that we have one print we are hoping for more. Maybe this Doves poster will be next.
Today, August 19th, is my husband’s birthday! So visit his blog and wish him a happy day.
