Camera Shy

Title: Camera Shy, Oil on wood $150.00 Painting is 7.25" x 11.25,
Overall size is Finished size is 11.75" x 16" Framed.

This piece started out quite a bit different then my original sketch, I had a few other objects on the left, 1 was an apple, which was probably the oddest shaped apple I had ever seen but it didn't translate well, and the right side had such a nice feel that I had to change my focus. Glad I stuck with it.

Hey how is everybody doing today, it's been a struggle for me of late and I haven't painted very much in the last couple of weeks, have some private issues I am dealing with at the moment and as a result I am finding it hard to concentrate but I am slowly plugging away.

On another note I put together my first newsletter a few days ago, it is my very first so keep that in mind when viewing, I am planning to put 1 together every couple of months so if you want to subscribe, your are more than welcome. Either the link on the side bar on my blog or even just shoot me an email. Did I mention it's free and may actually have interesting things in it from time to time.

Hey how are you all.

Hey how are you all.

Well it's been an interesting week, didn't paint a darn thing this week, just went by so fast, lots of other things on the go but not really sure what that was, I found out this week one of my paintings I entered into for the Colour and Form Society Biennial Members’ Show and Open Juried Exhibition (by the way that means every 2 years) for those that didn't know, me included. anyway the chosen piece is "Little Brass Cup" seen here. This year the show is being held at Todmorden Mills Heritage Museum and Arts Centre from May 24 – June 18, 2012.


 I have also been officially accepted into the Mississauga Art Society, with 25+ members, this gives me the opportunity to have my work shown in at least 2 shows a year which is great not only that we meet every couple of weeks to go over business and chat and paint and so on including a paint out or 2, so exciting.

Today I am at home waiting for the phone "NOT" to ring, I submitted 2 paintings to the Lakeshore Arts juried show today and if they are selected they will "NOT" call me to let me know between 5pm and 7 pm .

 Last weekend I finally went out and bought a Jullian French easel so I am finally set to get outside and paint, I am a little intimated by it however, so many questions, also the first time I go out I would rather not be watched by anyone, as I really don't know what I am doing.

Have a happy Mother's day to all this applies to.
Cheers
Dave

Shinning Star

I finished this a few days ago but didn't get a chance to post until now. More metal and a apple. Hey so last night I met with a local art society here in town to have them consider me as a member and showed them some of my work and had a impromptu presentation and Q&A afterwards, 1 of my worst fears as a kid was public speaking but maybe I have outgrown it as I just stood in front of everybody and talked for about 10 to 15 minutes, my mom would have been proud god rest her soul. Mid way through the night I was asked to join as they were very impressed with my work, Cool. Once everything is official I will update you.
