Each year our little Juneau/Douglas City Museum
holds a fundraiser ... I have prob blogged about it before,
but anyway - the theme this year, 2018, was
and here are the photos for the process of developing my painting,
Alder (a quadriptych or polyptych):
|I know ... this is a maple leaf. My first idea.|
But maple are not endemic to southeast AK and Alder (Alnus) is!
|Husband cut and cradled 6x6 inch panels|
|I prepared the panels, |
then he cradled & attached them
into a 12x12 square that we can take apart, until the end.
|Here is the sketch for what I eventually painted.|
|My beginning (I really liked it this way - scratched through the paint!)|
I painted with the small squares pressed together
and then took the squares apart to paint the edges.
|Alder - through the seasons oil on wood panels 12 x 12 inches|
As I am finishing typing my blogpost on this rainy Sunday morning,
a nice big black bear (Ursus americanus)
walked past my window through our back 40 and over
to the neighbors, who have chickens!!!
But, not interested in a chicken dinner,
he/she strolled on up thru
their back 40 and on through the neighborhood.
I hope it stays safe.
Thanks so much for viewing my art!
