Progress on Bling Lady

Yesterday I finished the chair.  Today I put it into context withfirst the wall/background, then the floor.  I need to do more work on the floor - the values aren't quite right yet on the right hand side - it needs more shadow - but I'm liking how it's looking.  This is the first time I've tried to paint the wooden floor in my studio even though it's actually been part of almost every painting I've done.  I like how the lines of the floor point to her since that is the perspective of the shot.  I began on her bike helmet which is on the floor, but I didn't take a picture of it yet.  I might get to work on the pictures a little bit tomorrow before I go to tutor, but probably not.  Most likely it'll be Friday before I have time to paint more. 

I've also been working on getting ready for the Gallery 44 Show at the Unitarian Church on Blanton Ave. here in Richmond.  It's a wonderful arts and crafts show held at the church, sponsored by the church, held each year for the last 44 years.  Here's more info about it:

Starting in 1966 in the church basement with about 20 artists, Richmond’s longest running juried Fine Arts & Crafts Exhibit and Sale now includes the work of over 160 of Virginia’s finest artists.

It's a wonderful show with lots of great goodies, generally well-priced, and extremely well-attended.  I'm delighted to be part of it.  I'll have a few of my smaller nudes for sale as well as polymer clay earrings, small watercolor paintings, and a few pastel fruits.  I hope to see you there!
