"Cluster of Blooms," oil on panel 30" X 40". Here is a new oil painting. I've been playing around with some knife work in the background. I was trying to create a more textured look there and yet keep her soft and rendered. #oilpainting, #figurepainting, #portraitpainting, #art, #painting, #fineart

I was also invited to participate in this years 6" X 9" Mystery Art Sale. Only faculty members and award winners get asked to donate a painting. Happily my painting sold. The sale only lasts about a half and hour. They open the ball room doors and it is a mad dash as all the attendees rush in to find a piece of art that they like. They then stand by it and wait for the chance to purchase it. All the paintings sale for $250.00 and nobody knows who the artist is until after they buy the painting.

I just returned home from the Portrait Society of America's Annual Conference in Atalanta, Georgia. The first night was the Face Off where 14 of the faculty artists painted demos for two and a half hours. The other three days were filled with demonstrations, break out sessions and the 6 X 9 Mystery Art Sale of which I was a participant.

Cool animated trailer, Siegfried Animated Trailer. Apparently this is for a series of graphic novels, unfortunately not a movie.
