Another new one at the gallery. I have been painting a LOT lately - yeah, I know, a lot of you think I paint a lot because I do a lot of Daily Paintings (small format paintings). But since I got back from Maine I have been working on bigger pieces. The dogs recently were two that came out of it but I have a couple of 36x36's coming...). But I have been thinking a lot about color and texture. This painting, simple as it looks, took days to complete. I very much wanted this particular sliding scale of the orange and the pink/lavendar. You see colors like that around here after the sun sets - the water leans to lavender, and the sky orange. Also just before the sun rises.
So! Hoping I can paint enough so that my INNER painter can come out and play, and she's coming up the driveway - I can see her but she's not here yet. But paintings like this are getting me there.
This is at the Art Stable Gallery. 865 Main Road Westport, and will be open from 11-5 Saturday and Sunday, and should be well attended! I'm going to be there around lunchtime (probably 1-ish) on Saturday. Should be a blast :)
Yep, more dogs coming - but not for a few days!!!! I'm hooked on that series!
