Art happenings

      These three paintings are some experimental results from the painting and posting last week. I think this is an interesting idea, and I will continue to develop it. Although it may be difficult to believe, these images are watercolors. They look very much like oils. I painted them on foam core, and found that applying the paint to the surface was very much like working with oils as well. The watercolor stays fluid, and can even be erased, reworked, and scratched into just like oils. It was a new experience for me, as I had always been instructed that watercolors could not be worked like oils. I think it has to do with the sheen of the foam core, but whatever the reason it seems like a good surface to use in the future.

      It is a busy time, and there are many art happenings. "Stabbed in the Art" and "Fest for All", two different art exhibition/festivals will be happening in Baton Rouge this weekend. I plan on attending both and will post about them here. You should go too, if you are in the area.

      In addition to these events, I also have some upcoming exhibition opportunities. I will be submitting some of my work to an exhibition in North Dakota at the end of the month. I was also contacted by my gallery representative in New York, with an opportunity happening in early June. She also confirmed that I will once again be listed in the annual Art in America guide to artists and galleries. It is indeed a very busy and exciting time. I will update information here as it is available. See you in the future, don't forget to post your comments.
