White Nightie

I belong to a group of artists that meets bi-weekIy to get through the long gray winter days by making art.  We give ourselves assignments.  This week, we decided to paint white objects.  It was fun to play in such a high key.  I hope to do some more in this vein.  It was also a unique approach for me because the support is plain good paper-not sanded.  I fixed down a nice, shaded, drawing of the subject in charcoal and then added the color.  The nightie was back lit by  golden light during sun breaks in the near constant rain.

I just read that we have  witnessed the wettest September on record here, after the driest July.  Wow.  The long summer days made for painting are past for the time being.  The Vistas and Vineyards annual show is up on the walls at LaSalles Stewart Center at OSU.  All submittals were chosen to hang so I am not sure we can call it a juried show this year.  The diversity of media and takes on familiar places make it a good show, however.  There will be a reception next Tuesday, October 8th, 6:30 to 8:30 pm.
