Though it doesn't look like it, I am preparing for two exhibits this fall...well, one is a market and the other a group exhibit in Ontario. I have been working, but sometimes need a break, and what do I do for a break? Paint, of course!
Previously I exhibited at the annual Calyx market which was amazing but falls on the same weekend as my Jr Artist Program at the library so this year I was excited to be invited to take part in Handmade Here which takes place in Calgary November 23+24 and also an exhibit at AyrSpace Gallery in Ontario. Very excited for both.
The adirondack chair I painted last year began with warm colours (red, yellow, orange) so I thought I'd begin this one with cools...all variations of blue - royal, turquoise and a tealy-green/blue. And seeing this photo I realized that I even colour-coordinated with the chair, both in clothing and jewellery...very interesting. I'm certain there is a psychological explanation for this, but I tend to believe it's just because I love blue...every single variation of it. Oh...and every other colour, too.
