Great Scape!

Isn’t it funny how things just seem to come together?  Last month I started working and blogging about scapes, and how really cool they are, and today I was working on finishing touches on the painting and this FABULOUS blogpost Great Scape came up on my reader.Please click on it to view a gorgeous photo of a “rollercoast” of scapes from the blog Leaf and Twig (which I totally enjoy reading daily!)

Almost finished this 11″ x 14″ watercolor of a farmer’s market collection of scapes, pepper, and kale.  Click on image to view larger.

So after spending a good deal of time yesterday on the business end of painting,  it was nice to get in painting time today.  Please let me know what you think.  I need some fresh perspectives on it.

This won’t be in next month’s show, but the deadline is rapidly approaching (mid August) for submissions to Arts International, the juried show put on annually by the EP Art Association.  So I will be working on it and others hoping to have some ready to submit for that show.  It’s  a busy summer here!

And with traveling, putting together frames/mats/paintings, ordering cards and business cards, I have been remiss in keeping up with reading art blogs…so that’s next on the agenda.  I so appreciate the support of other bloggers, and artists in particular, and I miss keeping up on what y’all are doing!

  1. I love the detail in your kale leaves. And nice contrast against the pepper! Good luck at the show! I’m glad you’re enjoying painting. I decided to challenge myself to painting every day this month. Halfway through, and I haven’t thrown the paintbrush away yet. :)))

  2. Oh my God I am so hungry right now. That kale looks so real and edible. Be sure to frame it well because you might get weirdos trying to taste it at the show! 😛
