Well, these paintings aren't of nudes ala Theresa who is brave enough to paint herself!
And the scandal with national level artists and competitions about the definition of the word 'original' has gone underground for a bit. Most artists don't want to comment on THAT sticky wicket!
This is the commission I have been working on for the past few weeks. The grand unveiling was last Friday night. This is for Jessica Butler and Jody Hendrix one-year anniversary of their wedding. Can you believe ANYONE in their right mind would run a 10k race just before their wedding ceremony? Some of us can't even climb a mountain! Anyway, she ran wearing a veil, and he a bowtie...look closely and you will see 'groom' and 'bride' on their shirts.
Everyone was pleased.
THEN on Saturday, my gallery in Eureka Springs, AR, Eurekan Art , sold TWO of my paintings!!!
This is an oil, 16x20, from a fabulous place in France named 'Chateau de Sigy'. That is an actual moat!
One of our trips to France happened to coincide with PoppyTime! Glorious fields of poppies, considered weeds there. Cash crops in other countries, pretty 'wed flowas' to me.
Born to daughter Betsy and Kevin on Sept. 13 in Denver, CO. We can't wait to smell his little puppy breath!
SO, bad times? Guess it depends on what your definition of 'bad' is. And also, raise a glass and toast those who see rainbows coming out of the cloudy sky!
