What I did with my summer vacation

| 18 August, 2014 19:28

I know summer isn't really over,  however, I participate in an art show (Seawall Art Show) that is always the weekend before Labor Day. Since the Labor Day weekend is generally the unofficial end of summer, I consider the art show to be mine.

This summer was very busy at times.  I took a trip to Alaska with my sister.  We took a cruise that left from Seattle, so we were able to see a few things there as well.  Alaska was wonderful, it is one of my all time favorite vacations.

I also painted quite a bit, seven new paintings.  I will have all of them at the Seawall Art Show in Portsmouth, VA on August 23rd and 24th.  More information on this will be posted in a couple of days.

Most of my work this summer is in water color, gouache, and water color crayons.  The painting shown above, Seeking Pythagoras, used these three media on a surface of Yupo synthetic paper.  It is 16x20 framed under glass.
