"Sit a Spell" - 11" x 14" - oil
Among a barrage of projects, commissions and exhibitions includes the spring Art at the Mill show in Millwood, VA. I've spent what little free time I've had trying to prepare new pieces specifically for this show. The painting above is just one of six paintings that will be making the journey to Virginia. I was somewhat torn between sending this to the Art at the Mill show or hanging on to it for one of my two major gallery shows later this year. The Art at the Mill show will run from April 23rd to May 8th.
In other news, I found myself on a two day lecture tour. Yes, I know... two appearances doesn't really constitute as a "tour." Tuesday I talked to the Women's Art Guild of Central Ohio. They were gracious and attentive and that's not even including the wonderful spread that they provided for lunch. Wednesday night I found myself talking to the members of the Worthington Area Art League (WAAL). I gave them a little bit of insight on my life and experience as a full time artist. From the feedback that I received, a lot of people were entertained with my presentation and could also relate to many of my experiences (both ups and downs).
Below I've attached a picture of the triptych that I've been working on. Earlier I posted in progress pictures but now that the c-clamps have been removed I thought should show the end result.
