Two Art Shows Coming Soon!

This weekend is the Inspire Art Center Show on Sunset from 6:30 to 9:00. Come on out for some margaritas, Virtual Art and Show! It should be lots of fun!
Then next weekend is the Schertz ArtZ '09 first big show at the Civic Center off Schertz Parkway. Thursday is the reception with wine and cheese and music. If you have not already reserved a ticket, you can call and make a reservation. You can call the Schertz Civic Center for more information. It will have all kinds of art from pottery, stained glass, sculpture to paintings in oil, pastel etc.
Above are my two latest. The Red Hibiscus is 8 bt 10 framed in a beautiful large frame that will go with the peach hibiscus. The new elephant is done on textured board. It's not as sad as the other one "It's Hard Getting Old". Any ideas for naming this one??
Have a great weekend!

Triptych Birds of Paradise

Happy July 4th! I'm off to Colorado with my college friends for a girls reunion. I'm soooo looking forward to cool weather since we are scorching and dying from the drought!
I wanted to finish this triptych before I left so I could remember what colors I was using. My friend Maggie and I did a barter! She painted, tiled and updated my bathroom, and I did this painting for her. The panels will be framed in 12 by 24 black metal frames. The painting is done on a board textured with with pumise and acrylic paint, and then painted over with pastel. Fun technique!
I'm waiting her approval though! May need to touch up things here and there.
Have a wonderful weekend!
