From Underpainting to Finish and Sierra Art Trails ...Big Event Coming Up

Sunrise Coming Out of The Grand Canyon
                                     5 x 7                            $70

By having the blueprint of the picture sealed under the alcohol I felt a new freedom . The foundation  was set in place thereby allowing the painting to keep it's integrity intact. The rest of the painting flowed.
I am not doing a new painting a day for now as I m so busy preparing for the  Sierra Art Trails artists open studio event coming this weekend ( see post of Sept 13th). This year we have 88 artists participating. It's a marvelous event. Ya all are invited to come , for details please click on http://www.sierraarttrails.org/ .

  2. Thank you Julie,and I wish you a most successful weekend. It's too bad that the Art Trails is not opened for a third day just so all the artists could come to one another's studio.
