I was delighted that my new abstract piece sold, and raised money for the charity:
Here I am with Mickey McVey, who invited me to participate in the show:
Here I am with Trish, the proud new owner of the painting:
Trish was excited to acquire the painting, I was happy that the piece sold, and we raised money for the charity. Everybody wins!!!
I had an idea for my new "Wall-o-Matic" (originally named "Wall-o-rama") rig that would allow me to work as large as I want to. The simple materials (inexpensive 'butcher paper' on a continuous roll...) would facilitate working freely without hesitations or intimidation, and just keep the sketches flowing. So I went out to get the materials. FOUR HOURS... later, I came home with the materials. I had no idea that plain old 'butcher paper' was so difficult to find!
But I LOVE it!!! Here is a snapshot of the setup:

They gave each artist a 10" x 10" panel and told us to do whatever we wanted. So I decided it was a perfect time to try some experiments with glazing that I had been thinking about, and the images from the Hubble Space Telescope were the perfect inspiration. I like to think of it as an image of raw, creative energy. The piece was totally experimental, spontaneous, responding to what was happening on the surface.
