Painting-In-Progress: Acrylic on Archival Gessobord 24x36"
Today I continued work on this painting which I hope to enter into a juried art show on Saturday. Juried art shows are "judged" art exhibits, usually with cash prizes of some sort or another. It is a way to give your work exposure, earn some money for supplies, and something to add to the resumé. The person(s) judging these shows always changes. I learned early on, not to take it personally if I wasn't chosen. There are objective art concepts that are considered, but it is still subjective after all. Although, there was one show that I entered where the bones of two small bird carcasses sitting at a tiny little table won first prize. I almost gave up after that one. But, you know, it did make you wonder...why did they stay at the table so long? Lesson learned! I thought I'd show you where I am on this painting. I showed you the first layers on March 27th. I will show you the results over the next two days...and here's to hoping!
