This painting is now at stage 4.
At this point, that far upper left tomatoe is finished except for the stem. This is how they all will come together, a little at a time.
I am not a patient person. But, for this one, I know I ruined one good start before, and I know I have to take this a baby step at a time to get it right. So I'm working a bit, walking away and doing something else, then going back in hours or the next day and working some more. So far, so good, but I know it's slow going to be watching this!
Sorry for the slowness but some things just have to simmer! (I must be hungry and thinking of tomato sauce - yum!!)
Wanted to share some photos from this weekend - a busy, art-filled weekend for me.
Saturday, Sweetie and I took a nice drive down to Rising Sun, Indiana to see the art fair and the juried show that was in the Pendleton Gallery there. It was a warm, sunny day and we had a good time.
The show had a first, second, third prize and a best of show (the large sculpture of the heron which was really beautiful).
My friend, Deb Ward, had two paintings in the show (she also had one painting in the signature member show of the Cincinnati Art Club I visited Sunday).
Rising Sun has a new riverfront area with a lovely sculpture/fountain gracing the new space.
But they haven't gotten rid of some of the older buildings, like this church on main street, which I've always loved.
On Sunday, I met Gaylynn Robinson, picked up her paintings for the Evergreen Show since she can't drop them off during the day, and we toured the Cincinnati Art Club's Signature Member show. Many paintings were small and there were some real gems included in about 38 paintings overall. We went to see our friend, Deb Ward's painting, Industrial Revolution, a fascinating painting that has so much more than you can show in a photo - lots of great texture and interesting, almost abstract composition, and beautiful colors - one of my favorites in the show. To see more (and another of my favorites, go to Gaylynn's blog to see the painting by Joanne Honschopp's beautiful, serene, lovely acrylic landscape painting of the river. Gaylynn did a better job getting good photos of the ones that caught our eyes and made us want to look closer. It's always fun to walk around an art show and see what others are creating.
