I've spent a lot of time in the studio this week. Mike is rafting/rowing the Grand Canyon, so I've had very few distractions.
One project I've worked on has been creating 3 small paintings for an upcoming show at Vistra Frame Outlet in Eugene. My three paintings are in 6 x 8 frames and will sell for under $200.
Sweetheart Abbey is inspired by a ruin I saw recently in Scotland. This piece is covered with collage, then painted over with acrylic. I've got to say that it is a challenge to use collage on such a small painting.
Lavascape #12 is the smallest I've ever done of this series. I began these lavascapes several years ago in Hawaii. This one is acrylic with some collage.
Liz Matissed is a small rendition of a painting I did in the Betsy Dillard Stroud workshop I took in April. The original is on a full sheet of watercolor paper and I was curious how it would translate into a small piece. It seems to suit this size also.
If you are in Eugene, stop by to see this show of small art pieces. Many artists will be represented in this show, and the work will be affordable.
