New Thoughts about Painting

Getting Ready for Shows

Hi there,

I have been so busy painting ,ordering frames and matts for the upcoming exhibitions.  I have the 8th Street Fine Art Show & Sale on 8th Street in Fargo, July 7- 8 “Wednesday- Thursday” 11:00 to 7:00.  This isto  followed by the Downtown Street Fair in Fargo the 15-17.  Anyhow I have finished  some beautiful watercolors  and am working hard to pull together and reveal my first acrylics.  I don’t know at this point if I will show any but  I’m pretty sure I will.    I’m a bit unsure of myself as I keep learning new things as I go and suddenly a small change can throw everything.  It frankly surprises me as it is so  much easier to cover up something  with acrylic versus watercolor .  However, in my acrylics the brushwork is really on display as I love the freshness of it.

I am working on the following paintings.  White Daisies, Zinnias, Belgian Horses, and a vegetable garden.  So far the mos likely to succeed are the Daisies and Belgians.  I did finish today the most fabulous watercolor of Dinnerplate Dahlias.   I recommend you stop by and see it while you can
