I did this painting with the colors I had left-over from my last painting session. (I didn't have any extra paint with me...but it turned out to be a good exercise, nonetheless! I concentrated more on the big shapes than on local color).
Earlier in the day, I had the great pleasure of making a presentation to the Battle Ground Art Alliance (in the community room at the Battle Ground Library). My art friend Hilarie Couture asked me to speak about marketing art. It's a subject I like and no one threw rotten tomatoes at me..so I'll count it as a success. I am indeed qualified to provide some counsel on the topic, since (drum roll), I did enjoy a career in communication before this foray into fine art. Hopefully I'm going to give a similar talk down the road at the Northwest Oil Painter's Guild. It was a great Saturday for me---How was yours??
