...and it was fun! Nice turn-out, and really the offerings were pretty tame. If I participate next year, and I don't see why I wouldn't, I'm gonna push the envelope a little more. Local artist Allen Reeve had lovely drawings. I wish I'd noted the names of some of the other artists; there was one piece entitled 'The Apple' I really dug. I'll get the hang of this reporting gig some day. The gentleman who bought my piece from the last show was there. Good taste, that guy! Sadly, most of my pics were blurry. Dont' drink, point, and shoot, kids. Anywho, here are the few photos fit to show. Don't be too dazzled by the neon joystick...heh...

Okay, cheap shot to get your attention. But it worked, didn't it? :D
I think I'm actually getting the hang of oils, after...oh...20 years or so? This painting went a lot more intuitively, even though I have miles to go before I can actually mix the color I want. God, I miss digital for that very reason. Sucks not having every color at your fingertips. But the tangibility of an actual painting is happy-making.
SO! This piece will hang at The Art Pad Gallery this weekend, for their second annual 'Erotica' show. I can't wait, really! I got a peek at a few of the other pieces and man, they are good. I hope the snow doesn't suppress the turn-out. And I hope I didn't overprice my painting...
I let y'all know.
'Crucifixotica', 18x24, oils. $600
