The Longest Night - Winter Solstice, 2012, acrylic wash monotype and rice paper on canvas, 9 x 9 inches

The Longest Day - Summer Solstice, 2012, acrylic wash monotype and rice paper on canvas, 9 x 9 inches
It was a lovely night for an art auction in Syracuse, New York. The Eastwood Rotary Club hosted their annual CNY Art Showcase last night to raise money for the Everson Museum of Art and I'm happy to report that my two paintings that I created specifically for the auction, were selected for the Auction Preview exhibition at the Everson Museum of Art and then both paintings sold at the auction to a young lady who was more than happy to take them home as a pair! Just seeing her happy face made me very happy...I'm glad my paintings found a good home with someone who admired them, and patiently waited until almost the end of the auction to bid on them.

Something new...something blue...

Detail of Something Blue, 4/1/2012

Something Blue, 3/29/2012 acrylic wash monotype, rice paper on canvas, 18 x 6 inches

I've been busy making a few things, plodding along, and then sitting back, contemplating...and then going long periods of not doing much of anything (down time is important.) When I made this one I was almost afraid to do that one more thing to it...but I did, and then I did another I have been holding back posting this one because I thought...maybe there's "one more thing"...

Well, if there is, I'll add it later.

I went to a "Book Eating Party" hosted by the Szozda Gallery and Salt City Book Arts it was a good time, my Fred's painting was one of the featured raffle items, and it seemed there was lots of competition for it. Good turn out, good time...
