I thought I would post this "evening" painting as we approach the evening of the year. I hope these last few days of 2011 find you at peace with the events of the year and hopeful for 2012! A new day will dawn...a fresh, clean canvas...let's make it beautiful and full of light!
When I started this little painting, I didn't quite expect his expression to come out a little happy, a little bewildered, but still with a twinkle in his eye, but I'm glad it did. It's probably the way most of look about now! Merry Christmas, everyone! Don't let the hectic side of things keep you from seeing the beauty around you...keep that twinkle!!
On December 14, 1819, Alabama became the 22nd state to join the Union! Happy 192nd Birthday to my state! In honor of the day, I'm posting this small painting of a camellia. The beautiful camellia is our state flower and perks up many a dreary winter day! The painting can be purchased at Stonehenge Gallery in Montgomery.
Interested in giving or receiving original art, but have a smaller budget this year? This Thursday, Dec. 8th, is for you! Come to Stonehenge Gallery in Montgomery for the annual small works show where works for $200 or less will be featured! The reception is from 5:00-8:00.
This is one of several pieces I'll have in the show - a view down Washington Ave in Montgomery. It's 6"x6" and is $150. I'll also have a few local landmarks, skyscapes, landscapes and florals.
I personally have added to my own collection over the years at this show! It's especially great for new collectors and those who are out of wall space as many pieces can be displayed on small easels! Hope to see you there!
