It seems that my painting is calling for some basic garden tools. Yesterday, I was provided with a rake, in order to rake leaves into my vanishing garden. The weather was poor, so I used the rake as a prop for my painting Green House On Eddy Street. I am not sold on that title, but for now that is what I have named the painting. I met the wonderful people who own the house. I purposefully introduced myself, because I didn't want them catching me gazing at their house...taking pictures of their house, and possibly getting the wrong idea about my intentions. I was delighted to meet them and learn more about the house...the tree, and I gave them the original sketch.
One of my favorite houses on my street is the subject for one of my acrylic paintings. I call it Green House On Eddy Street. I sketched the house last year before the great tree in the front was cut down. I grieved for that tree. I met the wonderful folks that own the house, and was delighted to meet their cat.
Syd's World is coming along nicely. I don't like to waste paint, so I work on two or three paintings at once. I should mention that I am also harvesting the last of my garden, and making a big pot of Chili...I won't be a starving artist today!
EIEIO is presently at The Beck Center for the Arts 17801 Detroit Ave. Lakewood, OH 44107. This painting is for sale. Syd got very ill this summer, and I neglected my blog, and my online life. In September I was featured in Higher Ground a statewide magazine. I haven't seen the article yet. That is how out of touch I have been. Please go see EIEIO if you are in the Cleveland area. Syd and I are recovering from his illness. Please contact me or The VSA office (art council) on how to purchase this painting.
