Today I'm glad to say that my latest painting "Bench At Bayne Park" has been posted on my site, and that I've made the deadline to put it in the show, "Views Of Bellevue" at my local art center. What I don't like was that I had to "blow off" (I'm being honest) my blog and my newsletter on Sunday as a result.
We are going through the period at my day job where people are going back to school so I have to do the work of two people and it proved to be too much some nights with taking care of normal personal matters. [...]
Today I have for you another update on my painting for the "Views Of Bellevue" art show. I wanted to post a couple of times this weekend but Mother Nature had other plans as I ended up having a root canal Friday evening. Not the way I wanted to spend the weekend, dealing with the resulting pain but it was something that I had to do. I was going through a tube of "Anbolsol" (or however it's spelled) a day before and it was affecting my sleep at night.

The other day I mentioned posting photos of where I am on my painting for the "Views Of Bellevue" art show. Today is the first photo showing you what has been done on the painting so far.

As you know from the other day, I'm working on paintings for an upcoming art show in my town. Well after stopping in at the center yesterday I found that artists can only submit one painting not two as I thought. I'll now focus on my painting of the park bench with the library in the background. I'm still going to do the other one I was planning of Bellevue Avenue at a later date.
As for progress on the painting for the show, I have the basic color of the library on along with the rough window shapes. Tonight after [...]
About three days ago I realized that there was an art show that completely slipped my mind. In my studio to the left of my computer table, I have a list of all the art shows at our local art center. There is a group show opening September the 5th, called "Views of Bellevue" meaning that the art depicts my hometown of Bellevue.
To the left of my computer table I had the list of shows right on the wall but didn't really read it as carefully as I should have. My excuse is that I was "too organized". Just kidding, I need to put it [...]
