Finally I'm back on my blog. I have been so busy working art shows that I quit trying to paint a new scene everyday. Instead I will now post paintings I done over the summer to let you know what I'm up to.
I did this painting while in the mountains near Mammoth Lakes, CA this last August. The idea was to make it look like it was painted on the end cut of a real log. The scene is painted on the same board as the frame so it is all one painting. The log look is a process call Trompe l`oiel which means "to look like". The entire painting is 22" in diameter and the edges are 1" deep and made to look like bark. I am pricing it at $875.00. PayPal, Credit Cards, & creative LayAways accepted.
Last month I did a show in Sacramento at the Convention Center. It was a huge show with lots of great looking art. Here are photos of my display.
You can see this painting displayed in the second photo. Unfortunately the news the week before was all about the current financial crises so needless to say people were not opening their wallets for many purchases.
