The November show at the Red Raven Art Company was a huge success for me – eight paintings sold! The First Friday opening event was packed with art lovers and demonstrated the vibrancy of the Lancaster art scene. Thanks to Lee Lovett, gallery manager for all her help in making it such an amazing show.
Tinted gesso on black board; early block-in of shapes
I learned this technique from Karen Margulis using Liquitex clear gesso which has a great pumice-like texture. I started with black board and used a 2″ brush to apply the gesso that I tinted with a dark green acrylic. The texture gives the final painting a loose look.
I’m getting 18 pieces ready for the upcoming show at the Red Raven Art Company for the month of November. Opening reception is on Lancaster’s first friday, November 6.
Bike riding is so much more civilized early in the morning. Very few cars, cool air and the first rays of light. Around Cooper River near my home, it was a cloudy sky but still glowing in the east.
