A forever home.

Ocotillo Dawn is one of my early oil paintings – as ever the favorite subject – Dawn off my back porch.  A few weeks ago one of my neighbors was visiting for lunch and took a shine to it!  So, its forever home ends up being in Salton City, about a mile from where it was born.

#1288 Let Dreams Through. Watercolor collage, 5×3.5 matted to fit 7×5″ frame.

 

Here are another couple babies from the bin.   For the first painting, I was definitely in my right brain when I was inspired to name it. On the second one, I just love the way I’ve been able to find the clouds that flow throughout the collage.

#1283 Jump for Joy. Watercolor collage 5×3.5″ in 7×5″ mat. $25.

It’s been such a dry year for sales, I’ve not needed to create too much.  Nevertheless sometimes I just can’t hold back.  Thought I’d do a batch of small impulse-purchase sized works at $25 a pop.  Indeed there were a couple of impulses succumbed to in the last couple shows.  Here are a few of the ones that haven’t quite impulsed people yet.

Mixed media painting

#1271 Night watch. Mixed media on solid pine panel, 14×24″. $250.

This is the last of the current batch of cloud-shaped paintings  Theoretically the shape is great for a kids room, but not necessarily the poem written in it, if you want your child to ever sleep:

Night Watch
Stars between clouds
a night to stay up and watch
until the sun rises.

Solo Show for August

JeniBateVanguardAug2017-1_wOne of the things that didn’t get on camera when I was taking photos of my Paint-the-night class was that earlier in the afternoon Rick (Rick Archer, President of Moreno Valley Cultural Arts Foundation and Vanguard Gallery) and I had hung up a 14-painting solo show on the left wall.

JeniBateVanguardAug2017-2_w<Sigh> this is by far the first time that I have put up a solo show and promptly forgotten to take any photos of it.   Senior moment!

 

JeniBateVanguardAug2017-3_wBlissfully I was passing not far from the gallery on Monday morning and (seeing as I’m on the advisory committee and one of the tutors and I have a key to the gallery) stopped in to rectify this.  The show will be up through August and there will be a reception on August 19th, 7-8pm.  Rick should have the labels up by then!  Actually many of these are available through my Etsy store at the moment (though it might take a little longer than promised to ship….).
