Ft. Madison Members Show 2017

My entries for the Ft. Madison Show.
I was bummed to miss the opening night.

"Claude's Boats"  oil  SOLD

I painted this the boats in the Lily Pond at Giverney
with a palette knife for this little painting.

"Piney Lake"   9 x 12 oil  $175

I am showing this a little larger than usual.
I love the colors in the pines.

I plan to go to see the show next week.
I might post some of the great work of a few friends in the future.

Fairfield Art Association Members Show 2017

Hard to believe that another year has come and gone!

"Forest Source"  oil  $50

The reception for the Fairfield Art Association's
Holiday Member Show 
is tonight, December 1st. at the Art Center.

The Art Center is located in the wonderful
Fairfield Arts and Convention Center
and is the product of loads of hard work
by dedicated volunteers.

Every year, for the past few years, they have chosen a different size of canvas 
for the artists to work with and this year we are using, ta da... 
6 inch by 6 inch canvases.

They can be painted or have cool things attached to them.
This results in an interesting and varied show.

"Apple Paint"   oil   $50

The few I have seen before the show are terrific!
We were allowed up to 4 canvases and there
are some series of 4 that are truly inspired.

My two entries in the show are dramatically different from each other.
I had both paintings in my head for some time
and had planned painting them in a larger format.

Maybe I still will???

The exhibit runs until January and is in the 
Lobby of the Arts and Convention Center
so you don't have to wait for the Art Center to be open to see the show.


The Art Center has a well-stocked Gift Shop 
for Christmas shopping 
and all sales benefit both the Artist and Art Center.
