"Antiques" ©


One of the many advantages of belonging to an art club is the opportunity to exhibit in many different types of shows.  I almost always paint landscapes, as you know.  The California Art Club is offering an exhibit soon of still life paintings and so I was pushed into leaving my comfort zone of trees and mountains and delve into flowers.  It took me a couple of days to find my way in the petals and I'll keep at it till it feels right.  

Oil on Canvas,  16" X 20"

p.s.  This Sunday, July 29th, 4pm - 6pm, if your in the Pasadena area, stop by Gales Restaurant and say Hi!  Belinda Del Pesco and I are showing about 45 paintings.  Gale will have wine and appetizers for everyone.

Thank you all for the great emails and comments. I wondered what kind of reception a still life would receive and so far so good. Beth you asked if the painting will be for sale, if it makes it is juried into the show it will have a price on the tag but the exhibit isn't known for sales. I am working on one more, I need 2 entries. This one is going much easier, now that I have a method to the flora. It's FUN!
