As you may already know if you follow the blog, last year I became a member of Chaffee Art Center in my town of Rutland, Vermont. I feel so lucky, and honored, to be their Artist of the Month! Visit the post here !
When I applied last year as a member and artist, I was so scared! I’d done several private sales and crafts fairs, but had never applied to an actual gallery. I almost didn’t do it! But my wonderful husband, who always encourages me and is my biggest cheerleader in everything said, “Do it!” So I did and now I have an entire group of artist friends who support me and each other. It’s such a great feeling! Here are some close ups of the photos above:
This one’s titled, “independence Day”, for more than one reason. If you look closely, you’ll figure it out!
Above is “Five ‘o’ Clock Beach. And finally:
“Red Umbrella”. I feel a little sentimental about this one, because it’s the very first watercolor I ever attempted, so I’m kind of attached to it. I was sorta happy that it didn’t sell, because it’s special to me.
As we move towards fall, I am getting ready to paint fall scenes, a favorite subject. And who knows? Maybe some of them will end up at the Chaffee later this year!
Happy End-of-Summer, Everyone!
