I really should be in bed right now, but I figured I should do a blog post quickly first.
This morning I got to go in to tutor late so after my 6:30 AM walk with Lynda, I worked in the studio for 2 hours before going to teach. I'm almost finished with Bling Lady's bicycle helmet. It's such a weird thing to have in a painting - don't know if people will know what it is, but the model will, and it matters to her, so in it stays!
This evening Chris and I finished framing a couple of pieces (including Grace, shown here) to have them ready for the Gallery 44 Show at the Unitarian Church that starts this next Wed and runs through Sunday. It's a great show with lots of artists from Richmond and surroundings. I love going to it! I am going to have 3 nudes, 20 watercolors, 5 matted fruits (cheaper than framed!), and 30 pairs of earrings. I hope it's a good show!
Tomorrow I'm going to try plein aire landscape painting with my fellow artist Adele. Neither of us is particularly adept at landscapes, so we figured it would be fun giving it a try and see what happens! It's sure to loosen us up! I'll post results tomorrow if they're not too terribly embarassing!
