Here is a new painting of my curious creatures in conversational triads. There are a few trumpeter‘s in the picture to remind me of my son who played the trumpet until he went off to college.
This painting is 9″ by 12″ Ink and Watercolor on Arches 300 pound cold press paper. It is for sale for $400 framed in a light maple frame.
Sunday night was the opening of Birds of A Feather and it was a truly hopping event. Paintings were flying off the walls. I have 2 chicken paintings in the far right corner of this picture. They are on aqua board.
The show is open until September 22nd so there is plenty of time to stop in and see the work and maybe pick up a wonderful piece of art. This year there were many chickens, interesting bird’s nests, beautiful bird pottery, cedian painted pillows, bird jewelry, encaustic, a photo of an egret on aluminum- it sold before the opening and someone ordered a second one- and some really cool gulls along with many paintings.
The show is at Kathrine Lovell’s studio at the shops at Mill Pond in Tiverton Four Corners, Tiverton, RI.
Beautiful weather these past few days. Catching many skip jacks, snappers or baby blues depending on where you are from. Had a wonderful swim last night as the water turned a glorious pink due to the reflection of the sun and the clouds at sunset.
We were graced with company from Kelley MacDonald,
and her husband Tim who took a try at surf casting as we saw schools of being chased away by jumping blues. those blues provided us with dinner last night and we had enough to enjoy them for dinner last night as well.
Birds of A Feather Exhibition
So if you are not busy Saturday come on down to Tiverton Four Corners in Tiverton, Rhode Island, to see some great birds in all types of art media, watercolor, pastel, oils, acrylics, wood, Cedian painting, pottery, as well as more that I am sure is there. Kitty Lovell has put this show together and will have a great band playing some wonderful music. You can see her work at http://www.klovell.com/
I have 3 pieces on cradled aqua board that are of chickens of course although I am continuing to do my crazy creature paintings as well.This cockerel is full of golds and bronzes and glows color. My buddy, the rooster, is an 8″ by 8″ ink and watercolor on aqua board and is being framed right now. I love the colors of this chicken and think he would make a great barn yard companion. I am experimenting with ornate borders around my work and an toying, just toying,with making a children’s book of curious creatures. I sure miss having Bantams living in our yard. Living in Arlington, MA did not lend itself to keeping chickens although we managed to do so for several years. I loved getting fresh eggs every morning.
Sitting Pretty is for sale for $125 plus $10 shipping. If interested please contact me at email@example.com. I sure wish WordPress would allow me to have a Paypal button on this website. Hate to think of having to switch. Any thoughts from other bloggers?
And for those of you who don’t know where the gallery is, it is on the second floor of an old mill building which was the reason for the beginnings of the town of Tiverton-the perfect spot to build a mill and dam the mill pond.
