This was the fee to enter the JDCM annual fundraiser.
Opening night was last night -
1 March - First Friday.
Their rules stipulate that your creation be
12 x 12 inches
... and if you are doing 3D
12 x 12 x 12 inches.
The theme this year was
I thought about the word
and its meaning.
The Merriam-Webster dictionary
first definition speaks
of the substances
that were once thought to be
what the universe was made of:
My thought was to paint
a few of the elements
my painting practice.
Here is the sequence of my process:
|I laid out some stuff and took a photo |
(but mostly looked down at my set-up while painting)
|made a grid and a sketch|
|On a 12 x 12 prepared canvas |
I first put a Gold acrylic base
then began to sketch with charcoal
|Then began to paint ... oh, and I gooped on some more of that gold acrylic|
(because it was pretty!) and after looking at it, decided more paint tubes were needed
|Elements acrylic and oil on gallery-wrapped canvas, 12 x 12 inches|
I have not been to the exhibit yet,
but will go soon.
Juneau peeps, you should go soon too.
Thanks so very much for checking in
and viewing my art and process.
(and happy March!)
