Okay, thank you to those who said they would have bought my work from the Figureworks show had they had the chance. BUT, it was bought by a fellow artist, who really loved it and snapped it up just after the show opened.  I don't think it could possibly have a better home.  I'm quite tickled that one of my peers, who never buys art, had to have it.

"It's all there in black and white"

At last nights vernissage Mr. P and I walked around the gallery just after the show opened and checked out all the art work.  On our second pass around Mr. P noticed that someone had placed a red sticker on my tag.

Mr. P.: "Why is there a red sticker on your tag?"

Me:  "That means it sold."

Mr. P:  ", really.  Why is there a red sticker on your tag?"

Me:  "Because it sold."

Mr. P.  "Are any of your relatives here?"

Me:  "It wouldn't surprise me, but that would just be depressing."

I can save face and say that it did get snapped up right away by someone that was not a relative and that I didn't know, who "never buys art" but just loved the work.

Mom and Dad's House

I thought 'wouldn't it be nice to work with a medium that's quicker to work with than coloured pencil'.  It was for the first two pictures I did, but somewhere along the way I lost track of the purpose of working in ink and ended up here.  Highly detailed, many hours later, pulling my hair out.  Sigh.  When will I learn?  Probably never.  Just not very bright I guess.

I'm still working on this one.  Pen and Ink drawing of a street on the Market.  Although these can be worked faster than a coloured pencil work, they are very unforgiving.  One mistake and you're done.  Why do I do this to myself;-)

New Art

 Just started this oil painting.  It's all blocked in and waiting for additional layers and then details to be added.  It won't be finely detailed like my coloured pencil works but it sure is a lot faster than doing a cp painting.
 Here's a picture of a stool with a towel on it in front of a mirror.

Sleeping Tempest

3 different models were used to do this painting.  Not by choice mind you!  (I thought it was the artists that were supposed to be temperamental not the models.)  It's still not done but is unlikely to ever get finished.

I love the heat.  I love the beaches.  I love the odd creatures.  I love the plant life that smells so different.  Tell me again why I should go back to a winter climate.

If a picture is worth a thousand words how much are 6 worth?
