Participating in 2013 Art on the Green Juried Show!

Two of my recent works have been accepted into Coeur d'Alene's Art on the Green Juried Show scheduled for the 1st weekend in August. Nice! They are "Uig Highlander," and "Memento Mori."

Wee Church in Paint

one of This Week's Painting(s). . . .                     
 This is an original miniature oil painting of an old church near the top of Union Street in Aberdeen, Scotland.
Aberdeen Architecture, 4"x6" oil on gallery wrap canvas

I love the juxtaposition of all the angles of perspective in this small space of view!  And the colours of the old granite and roof materials...the Granite City usually appears quite gray, but if one looks closer, there are hints of colour in that rough old stone!

"Aberdeen Architecture"
is a gallery wrap painting, which means the sides, top and bottom are painted also, with no need for a frame.

The Auction Block....

  Such a busy summer, and my participation in favourite art fairs and highland games is at an all-time low.  Needs must.  The 'auld wrinklies' require time and attention daily, which doesn't mesh well with 'getting my work to the people.'  Hence a timid adventure into the world of ebay auctions a la Duane Kaiser's Painting A Day

  My current hectic schedule barely allows for a half day of painting per week, but that's still something!  So "Standing Stones, Calanais" is up for auction.  Why not throw in a bid just for laughs?
