Mine Entrance, Hole Beach
Mixed Media Painting
What a lovely weekend I had, doing my Open Studios event. There’s a lot of work involved, but the three things I love most about Open Studios are:
- Friends and acquaintances get to see what you do all year, and what you’re really about.
- You get to meet such an interesting range of people, and talk to them about your art.
- You hear such wonderful comments about your work (hopefully) that it warms you and bolsters you for your next efforts.
And you hopefully get to make a few sales and sit in a nice place planning your next paintings or just soaking up the sun.
Thank you to all out there who made the experience such a pleasure. I’m so pleased that you stopped by.
No rest for the wicked, though, as I now need to plan for my First Solo Exhibition (ta-da!) in July.
The painting above is one I managed to finish for the Open Studio. So pleased with it how it turned out. I wanted to capture the way the morning light catches the rock face, while the rest is in deep shadow. And the almost abstract shapes… here’s a close-up of the texture for you to enjoy:
