I'm working on a commission. A Beautiful Old WHITE Home. So I went to mask out the areas on the house I wanted WHITE . I worked for a while and thought, 'I think this masking fluid is old'. So i threw it away and got out another bottle. I went to remove it yesterday and it stained the bright white paper an ugly brown. I needed the Bright WHITE of the paper in those areas. I placed I couldn't even lift it off the paper, just made a big mess. The photos below show the brown color it stained it and the gummy mess it left behind.
I started over today. .Not a happy painter.
Tuesday, I worked at the DAC Downtown Artist Co-op = no studio time!
Wednesday, I went on a Gallery Hop with the Tennessee Watercolor Society = no studio time, Photo above
Thursday, I practiced with the All Strung Out Dulcimer Group, it's music,it's Art = no studio time.
I'm very proud to have received two awards last night at the 2019 DAC Regional Art Exposition. My Pen and Ink drawing, Trees in the Fence Row took a 1st place award and my Acrylic Painting, Day is Done placed 2nd in Non Aqueous Painting. The Exhibit will be up for the Month of August at the DAC, 96 Franklin St., Downtown Clarksville, TN. Closed Sunday & Monday, Opens at 1-5 T-F and Saturday 9-5. It's a beautiful show with a large number of regional artists represented.
Thank you to ours Juror, Ann Blair Brown out of Nashville, She is both a studio artist as well as a plein Air Artist. (Click on her name to see her work)..
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.
