Art Feast 2008

Today I took one of the last paintings I did in 2007 to the Kemp Auto Museum in Chesterfield for the Chesterfield Arts Art Feast. It is called Forest for the Trees. This painting represents that feeling I get when I am painting way too much. I get all buried in my work, and I get to where I can't see my painting any more. It's like I am looking but the information isn't getting to my brain. I can't see the painting for the paint so to speak. If you are interested in a purchase, better buy some tickets to the event and make a bid because it is out of my hands now. I am always glad to do this auction because it is a great chance to meet other artists, see great art, and have a nice night of entertainment. I just have to squash my hermit crab tendencies in order to make a good time of it.

On another note.... I just bought my paint for the year from Dick Blick. OMG I spent way too much. I changed from Liquitex Paints to Golden because Liquitex quit offering 8oz jars. I know Golden is really good paint, so I it is worth the investment. Man it hurt the ol' bank account though! I love getting my new paint for the year. It's like getting a new box of crayons for the first day of school. I talked to Mary Beth today about it and we were going down the line naming our favorite colors like little kids. I can't wait till they get here!

  1. You are going to LOVE the Golden acrylic. I won't use anything else.

    Have fun opening your Dick Blick boxes. I always feel like it's x-mas when they arrive.
