All of the old farm buildings were built by hand, with local materials. Those materials have weathered and aged into beauty. This painting of a potato barn is at Art on Depot, Waynesville.

I’m enamored of the paint samples at Lowe’s. They change every season. Donna gives me coupons, so mostly I don’t buy them. I had these boxes, and the jars fit in them nicely.
I’m making a color chart, of all of the acrylic and latex paint that I have accumulated since quitting oils. It’s quite a range, and some are surprising. I had a huge array of oils, but since ITP, I’m staying away from the solvents. The skills of using acrylics are different from oils, and I get frustrated sometimes. And sometimes we make something rocking!
This painting if of a Cereus, an outrageous red bloom. A flower that is about 8 inches across. I may not have captured the light coming through the leaves, but I did show a human imposition on nature, the grid pattern. This painting is currently on display at Art On Depot. The tangled web was that my website was down last night as Lunar Pages had technical difficulties. We can ignore nature and our environment, but when it doesn’t work, we will be scrambling.
Thanks to Cathey Bolton, owner of Art on Depot, who represents me. We popped into the gallery today because Donna, Gregg’s mom was visiting. She believes it is the best gallery in Waynesville, and I agree! Cathey made my day by asking to buy this painting of mine! We are hoping for a good season of art sales through her gallery!
We are surrounded by images, many of them electronic. Do you stop and think about the story that a picture is telling? Take time to ask what is real.
Woodpeckers are all over the world, but near trees with bugs, not cities with concrete. Where do paintings exist?
