Three Watercolors for the Home

April 16, 2011

Three framed watercolors in the Home

I grew up listening to the adage that physicians’ children were the sickest, teachers’ children the dumbest, preachers’ children the meanest, mechanics’ cars the worst maintained, etc.  For year after year, I could not afford to custom frame my own watercolors, then once I could afford it, I started selling them more than hanging them.  Finally I have been able to fill my own home with custom-framed work of mine, and am glad to be able to look at them.

With my first one man show approaching this September, I need to frame sooner rather than later, so I don’t find myself scrambling for “presentation pieces” when show time arrives.  These three I just picked up from the Weiler House Fine Art Gallery in Fort Worth, Texas–the gallery that will host my September show.  I have already posted the images as I completed them in the studio recently, but wanted to show the presentation in my entry way as it now appears.

Yesterday afternoon I managed to begin my first plein air watercolor study in over a week.  I have errands to run at the moment, but hopefully I will return to the work later this afternoon and post this evening.

Thank you for reading.

My Rustic Gallery, December 17, 2010

My classroom "Rustic Gallery"

My classroom "Rustic Gallery"

Now that the art festival season has closed for 2010, I thought I would bring all my art work and festival booth furniture into my classroom for the last two weeks of school before closing for Christmas vacation.  I had plenty of visits from my colleagues and quite a number of sales as well.  Coffee was served.  Conversations were fascinating.  I just loved the encounters, and it was nice to see art work behind my students instead of a blank public school classroom cinderblock wall.

All the artwork came home with me this afternoon, and only the rustic doors remain.  I’ll have to think of something else to do with them when I return to school in January.  Meanwhile, I have plenty of new things to post, as I’ve been plenty busy painting and too busy to post!
