Painting on a Saturday Night

Getting Lost in the Myriad of Windows!

My thrill on this Saturday was helping an emerging artist friend set up for her first art festival in downtown Arlington. Two other seasoned artists joined Sandi and me in helping her set up and take down the booth. With so many hands in the mix, the booth and artwork was up in a snap, and came down at night even faster.

Welcome Stacy Campbell to the Art Market!

Stacy’s inaugural festival event proved a success with her landing a number of commissions. She’s already looking forward to the next one.

Finding myself tucked into the quiet of our home on a Saturday night, I’m pleased to spend quality time now in Studio Eidolons. Jazz music at night puts me in the mood to paint, and though I’m mired in the details of all those flatiron windows, I’m actually having a serene time. The pups have been in and out of the studio all evening, and Sandi has settled into a good book. All is serene here.

My goal tomorrow is to have all the windows on the facade completely finished. I truly believe the painting will move along considerably faster once they are in place. It would have been faster merely to paint every single window space black, but in the photo I took, something can be seen in the interior of each one, and it is not always the same pattern. I’m convinced that treating each of them in its individual appearance will pay dividends to the overall look of the painting.

Thanks for reading.

I make art in order to discover.

I journal when I feel alone.

I blog to remind myself I am not alone.
