Busy Weekend...Part II
The Baton Rouge Art League members are so generous in their support of the arts. I have been invited again to show one painting at their Art Exhibit and Reception at the LSU Rural Life Museum Saturday evening.
It's a great opportunity for 150 or so artists to showcase their works all in one place. I love this event because I meet new artists every year and get to chat with those that I paint with all the time.
Some background on this painting is that the inspiration piece (bottom image), "I Think I'm In Love", is a plein air piece I did out in a field in St. Amant last October in a gorgeous field of yellow flowers. It was a great day with my friends all painting together. I wanted to take that painting and create a larger piece from it. I had this 20" x 40" canvas in my studio and my mind kept going to back to it to go larger and this is the painting. The title is from a Carole King song titled "Gotta Get Through Another Day" and this verse just hit me when I was painting this piece. I love her music.
(BTW - I just sold "I Think I'm In Love" last week.)
