I'm starting a new watercolor or maybe acrylic. It will be
similar to the empty chair, the sun coming through the window onto a table top. I also need to do a few more old trees. I got two "likes" on the Tannery Row Facebook page.
Here are the two paintings that I've already done that are in the gallery at the Tannery.
Here's a pic I did using the Brushes app of flowers just out of
my head. The iPad really is fun. It's like finger-painting. I took a pair of
cotton gloves and cut the fingers out, so I can paint without touching the
screen with the side of my hand. It's working better. There is a fabulous video
on You Tube and you'll notice the gloved hand on the artist. Here's the link to
the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5OLP4nbAVA4and the Artist is David Jon Kassan -
portrait artist http://davidkassan.com/drawings.shtml
Started a drawing and I've noticed one thing. Use a glove, if any part of your
hand touches the screen, it just might mess you up. I was almost done with the
drawing in brushes, and one of the layers disappeared. I had to delete it.
I just got an iPad and I 've been drawing a little on it. Here are my first two drawings. The first one is a face just out of my head. The other one is of my hubby napping today. It's a lot of fun and no mess!
I've had some wonderful comments on my facebook on the show. The empty chair watercolor has gotten some notice. It is my latest watercolor, I just finished it before the show. The show has 5 paintings not on the web site. I will try to get those photographed and on the site soon. Here is a photo of the empty chair in the gallery.
Three featured artists this month at the Tannery Gallery, and I
am one of the three. There are 30+ paintings and drawings on display in
the Gallery at Tannery Row Artist Colony and 12 are mine. I feel so honored to
be displaying my work with Judith Surowiec and Jeff Stone. Judith
has some incredible color-pencil work and a few acrylic pieces. Jeff has
ink and canvas non-objective works, with some oil on canvas. I have
realistic drawings, and paintings. Please, come to view the show through
the middle of Aug., 12:00 till 5:00 Tuesday through Saturday.
I have to get over to the Tannery and Frame the works I did in the "Gardens of Atlanta Tour" http://www.lunaslilliesinc.com/ for the show Thursday. Wish me luck, with a fractured foot, it won't be easy. Thank goodness, the other two artist have offered to hang my work for me, but I have to have it ready.
Along with two other artists, our show will be up for the next
few weeks in the Tannery Row Gallery. We have Jeff who is a non-objective artist who has some every interesting pen and ink work. Then we have a wonderful plein air artist, Judith who has a wonderful, fun, way with her paintings. Both of these artist are a "must see". And I will have some of my drawings and watercolors.
I have a show coming up and I need to get three paintings framed and ready. Too late to be starting something new for the show, my time is up!
This is an adventure for me, something I've always wanted to do: to be a real Artist! So I rented a studio, lets see how it goes.
