I was recently invited to join Alessandro Berni gallery for representation in their online gallery. In the last few days we dotted the is and crossed the ts and this morning I was one of the new artists introduced in their mailing.
I am usually willing to do commissions that will not be chosen. I often do a couple of commissions when making a refractured watercolor or mixed media because if it doesn’t it the spot, it can just go into show stock and someone else will love it.
Just Chillin’ II started as a commission and the potential customer didn’t fall in love with it – in part because it wasn’t going to look good in the house because the wall colors weren’t conducive. So, another 16×20″ matted painting is in the bin this weekend.
#1358 “Just Chillin II”. 11×14″ refractured watercolor in white mat ready for 16×20″ frame.
The one I don’t* understand is the “top left” part of the X. But then physics was so long ago.
… the years I’ve lived here, I’ve come to know lots of ways the light plays through the house at various times of day or year. Although it’s late October, I’m still finding it necessary to slant the blinds to deter sunlight in the afternoon, in order to avoid needing to run the A/C. I guess I just had one slat out of place, creating a shaft of light way over in the dining room and out the back door, and reflecting back inside to make an X. Never seen this one before and likely won’t again…
