I had this 30x30 red canvas that was going nowhere after several attempts. It hung high on the pegboard in a corner, just waiting... and waiting. So now it's complete, for better or for worse, it can be called finished. I've been using the circle in other works I'll share later, but this one is here and now. Not a true bokusho, perhaps an intro to a branch series... dunno.
But for today, I'm packing to hit the road Friday for fun and games. A Paint Day in Port Gibson, MS... a lovely historical town on the Mississippi River (Grant proclaimed it to be too beautiful to burn) with artist friends of long standing. There will be an open auction at the end of the day, lots of good food and chatter... I'm really looking forward to this!
Sunday morn I'll head south to another lovely spot on the MR just upriver from NOLA. A quick visit with g-kids, then home on Monday. Will try to arrange to drop off a couple of bokusho paintings at the gallery there, they have several small ones but these are much larger. They'll be closed so will have to do some dancing to get it done.
Back in time for a visit with an artist friend from GA... more fun and games and a chance to show off the lake house... bear with me!
