You can go see the preview of each larger image here. They look pretty cool all framed up. I will post a photo when we get them hung.
I was updating the web page and kept counting only eleven. I realized then that, Family Tree, was still sitting on my easel! Gene will frame that this afternoon or tomorrow. Whew. It is always more work than it seems. Now that I was posting, I realize there are thirteen paintings. Maybe that is the problem ... thirteen! I hadn't put "Malpais and Cacti" on my page. Arghhhh. The above photo will change on the page.
I still have to make the info/price cards and update my brochure. I plan a newsletter as well. I did already mail invitations to the local folks. If any of you are in New Mexico during my show or this summer, let me know!
You may remember that I was updating "The Tree" I finished it and it will be in the show, newly named, "Family Tree". I really like the new version. That tree was soooo large and interesting, that I just couldn't give up on it. The shadows on the family are stronger than show in this photo. It was difficult adjusting the saturation. It all looks better in real life. We will see how it does with non reflective glass against it after the framing. I used that glass on "Regina's Geraniums" and "Malpais and Cacti" as well. It seems to dull them a slight bit, but much less reflection. Glass is a problem with pastels. I have museum glass on the "Tiendita de Chile" and it is better, but that piece of glass was $50, 16 x 20. We shall see what people think of the differences.
