Hunt 382 Sketch and Pastel Painting

I sketched at the kitchen table.  It is around 45 degrees today (Friday) so no sketching out on the porch.  I sketched in the regular large sketchbook with a Micron 05 pen and added a touch of watercolor.  I was inspired by Norma who is hosting.  She does freehand watercolor sketches.

For Scavenger Hunt 382 http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?p=20277157&posted=1#post20277157

Number 7, something for a salad - onion
Number 8, juicy - lemon
Number 9, spicey - peppers
Number 10, something to measure with - little pottery bowls that Lea Blue made for me.  They have bluebonnets on the inside and are a mottled blue and white outside.  Lovely and usable.  Dishwasher safe, too.  http://bluedonkeygallery.com/Pottery_Gallery.html

Now I'm off to deliver a painting to Art Conections Gallery.  I will have two paintings there again.
I'm delivering this painting of the Loblolly trees around the corner.

Pastel on U-Art sanded paper, 12 x 18 inches
$450.00, framed against museum glass in a black metal frame

This painting is at Art Connections as well.

Pastel on Pastelbord, 24 x 18 inches
$950.00, framed in dark frame with gold near painting

When you click on the links to my website you can see these paintings in their frames on the wall.

I will be working on new work as I will be the featured artist at Art Connections Gallery in February, info and contact information at top of this page.

Here are a couple of photos in the gallery.  It is a great place with about 80 artists represented from our community.

Pastel class in Bastrop in December........

It looks to be a nice place for art. We need something like that in Duncan.

Bag Blog, Deborah is working very hard to make the gallery a great place. Artists that show there do not show anywhere else in Bastrop. We also have the Bastrop Fine Arts Guild which is artists in a coop situation. I opted for the gallery as I can't be around to be docent or fit in their time schedules for hanging. The Guild was a great start and is very good for Bastrop, too. The art community here is really growing. There are four or so more individual galleries like I had before, too. Nice....

really nice looking gallery to show work in :)

I am jealous big time of the colours and light in that tree painting :)

Jo Castillo said...

Jennifer, thanks. It is a nice gallery with pretty good sales for a small town. Wish you could be here for the light class! That is the best part of paintings to me.

light is def best part of a painting, probably the most important as well(at least I think so).
