This is another small painting - 7" x 9"
I often do a couple of small ones when I'm working on the SWAP painting so
I have some to hold in reserve. I began this one, using a postcard from our
local grocery (promoting a grand opening event) - nice blueberries in
a wooden "box." I'll have to get the
deep colors in there and leave the
whites and pales to show shine. It
makes me happy, working with blues
and violets - I guess it's calming for me. And I'm getting more used to using complementary colors in things I paint to have some visual pop.
Today, a friend and member of the Greater Cincinnati Watercolor Society, Susan Grogan, is taking part in a show at the Miami Township Civic Center (6101 Meijer Drive) from 10 am - 4 pm. She has a booth there to show and sell her watercolors (and she is very good!!). I'm hoping to get to visit for a while today.
Tonight, the TriState Photographic Society is having their annual year-end award banquet. Lots of good food, good people and fantastic photos to see :) Sweetie may even win some more ribbons and/or plaques this year.
Tomorrow, I hope to visit the Women's Art Center of Cincnnati (The Barn) second Sunday show as well as the current show that's been there a while in a second gallery (it's called Oil and Water). I want to check out the space since our watercolor society will be having a show there in June (and I'm coordinating the registrations and accepting the paintings and $ on the drop off day).
I'm also going to try to get a painting into the WACC annual juried show (sent in the forms and $ already but will still have to hand deliver the painting at the end of this month).
