This is the Kappa Sigma house at APSU from years ago when my son was there. The drawing turned out better than this photo. My son still has the original. I've thought about having cards made of the drawing or having prints made through FFA . I have to get the original and photograph it before that can happen.
I traveled to Clarksville for a doctors appointment and on the way back we took the back roads to enjoy the fall colors. Then it was back to the studio to unpack from Saturday's Bell Buckle Plein Air trip. Once I finished that, I was homeward bound. The painting pictured here is from my Plein Air Trip to Monteagle last year. I didn't go this year because I'm going to the Smokey Mts. next month to paint Plein Air.
I met Russ Faxon the sculptor and Micheal Bush the painter today at the "Plein Air Artists Day" in Bell Buckle. After the event we were invited to dinner and a tour of Micheal Bush's art studio, WOW, what a treat!! Micheal and his wife Modona (also an artist) were the most welcoming of hosts
I painted Russ Faxon's studio (painting on the right) but I'm not happy with it. I will go back in and take the building down a notch or two. And what's with that ugly shape in the foreground? I'llwork on it too. The painting isn't great but the day was.
I painted in Clarksville today with our little group and we always have a wonderful time. I'm still working on that door painting but I didn't take a photo of it today. It is still in my car. I came home with a headache so I didn't go back to the studio. Before I left for Clarksville, I met with my clients for the commission piece I'm working on. I'm busy even if I don't have photos to share.
Happy Fall Weather Everyone.
I painted these yesterday at the studio. The first mini is 2" x 4" , the smallest I do are 2" x 2". I started the larger minis yesterday, this is the first of six in this size. I worked a while on the commission piece yesterday morning, took a break to work at home and had lunch. Then back to the studio to work on these little guys. I came home and went to bed, I wasn't feeling well at all. But I'm fine this morning.
I was already to go to the studio this morning and the hubby had plans and asked if I would help!
So I changed out of my comfy shoes for the work boots and worked on the place today. I did enjoy being out side and enjoyed the weather but no art today. I should be back at the studio tomorrow.
I headed to Clarksville for our weekly painting session, after lunch at Noodles ( I love that place) I headed back to the studio. I managed to add five 2" x 4" minis to my mini collection. I now have 8 out of 8 done. The one in the middle is from yesterday's minis, I added leaves to the trees. I didn't post what I did in Clarksville, it's still in my car. I'm too lazy to get in out.
These are three minis I finished today. I also worked on a commission piece, which I can't share in case the right person checks my web site. I got to the studio early, opened the doors and kept them open all day for the fresh air and sunshine to come in. There were also 3 yellow jackets and two wasps that came in too. I had two human visitors too! They were very nice, the bees ran me out of the studio a few times.
I'm doing the minis for the Houston County 6th Annual Christmas Arts & Crafts Show. Friday Dec. 6 9:00 to 5:00 pm.
It 's Sunday and after church we met our son and his family for lunch. A beautiful day with family, it was wonderful we had a good time.
The painting is one I put on Fine Art America site for prints today. I painted it Plein Air on the campus of the University of the South, Sewanee, TN. It is a beautiful area and it has a natural bridge. I wonderful place to visit in the fall and spring.
I've been stuffing the new Dogwood note cards and their envelopes into clear plastic sleeves today. The Houston County Arts and Craft show for the Holidays is coming up right after Thanksgiving. I need to decide which other of my paintings I want to turn into note cards. I'd like do two more for this year. Any suggestions?
Below are some of the ones I thought might be nice as note cards. Which one would you most likely buy?
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.
