Just a few updates, less words, more pictures.
Ruston had an art show 50 paintings for $50! All works had to be under 8x10. The amazing thing-- both my works sold within 15 minutes of the show opening! Thank you Ruston!
Here are the two I submitted. Thanks to my two patrons who took these home! Please enjoy!
My friend Kacey and I are starting Ruston's first Plein Air Competition. We wish to host a day of fun, painting and community! It all started when at an art council meeting we were introduced. That led to a coffee date where the idea came up, a plein air day. The conversation quickly turned into let's do it! Ruston is such a great place to hold events where art and community come together. So here it is, our creation! If you would like to apply visit: rustonpleinair.com/apply
I want artists to compete who don't plain typical landscape subjects. I want to see the odd take on a landscape, maybe a splash of unexpected color or unconventional subject interjecting the contemporary landscape. But of course, with respect to painting outside in the elements as it happens.
Also, I'm extremely grateful to Henry at Fine Line Supply for his gracious donations, time and effort in helping us put on this event! Thanks for the support!
