Varnishing Kickstarter ProjectHere are five of the “Painted Diamonds” ball park paintings that were recently being varnished and prepared for framing.  (You can see that Mamie was helping me!)  Once the paintings are completed I give them some time to dry thoroughly and then I went back over them, touching up any areas that I felt needed a little more work, signed them, varnished them, and put them in frames.  This all in preparation for the exhibit that will be held from October 23 – November 8 at the Blue Ridge Arts Council.  The Opening Reception will be Wednesday, October 23rd from 6 – 8  pm.  Please mark your calendar and plan to attend.  It will be a fun evening with a baseball theme (of course).  I’ll post more about it as the plans are finalized.

George's Goat George’s Goat, oil on canvas, 8″x6″, available for $135.  After taking the workshop last weekend on “Painting Animals” it reminded me that I need to paint more animals for the Farm Animal series that I did several years ago.  (You can see more about it here.)  Many of these have sold so I need to come up with some more of these cute faces to add to the series.  Stay tuned….next, a Llama!
