6"x5" detail of 18"x24" oil painting in progress
I painted about three hours further on this portrait. So many little adjustments to make, and still to make, but I do like how it's coming. Didn't focus on the horse much at all today.
I knew there would be an increased portion of my time that would be spent on the business part of art when I opened the gallery. But I spent all of yesterday and more than half of today entering transactions into Quickbooks and doing other office work. It felt so good to pull my palette out of the fridge and settle in front of the easel for the last three hours of the day.
An email arrived yesterday to say that my two paintings, Holding On and A Day To Remember In La Villita, were accepted into Hill Country Arts Foundation's 2-D National Juried Exhibition, Sept. 11 - Oct. 19. Acceptance. Ahh, feels good.
