The watercolor painting got a name “Moon Rise” I made a new frame and decided mat it in black mat board. This watercolor painting is going to Las Vegas Artist Guild Gallery at the Galleria Mall Las Vegas Artists Guild is next to the upstairs entrance to Dillards Las Vegas Artist Guild Gallery is a nonprofit gallery that represents a lot of local artists from Las Vegas. Remember to shop local first.
I’ve been excepted into Gallery to Go art vending machines run by Nicole Cochener. I’ve made 15 original 5” x 7” watercolor with blank cards and envelopes. I will be dropping off the cards this week at her gallery Squishy Studio at the Arts Factory.
The themes for the watercolor paintings are Fall in the Canyon, Red Sail, Purple reflection, Grass is always greener and Cold winter’s night. I don’t like painting on cards so each watercolor painting is painted on good quality paper. There’s four paintings per paper, the paper is cut to 5” x 7” and mounted on a blank card.
My watercolor painting Cow Skull will be at Las Vegas Artist Guild Gallery at the Galleria Mall for the month of September
This is a 36 x 24 inch paper. I’ve pulled the watercolor paper off the board. The painting needed a rest
“Sunrise in the canyon” is a watercolor painting 36” long and 16” high. When I painted I didn’t think it would be hard to frame. I orders a frame last month it’s still not here. Yesterday morning I pulled out some teak I found last year on the side of road and some trim wood from the garage. I have a Matt cutter and Matt board from when I was a landscape photographer. Last night the frame had two coats of stain on it. A artist is not payed by the hour.
You can see my painting April 12 to May 16 at the Las Vegas Artist Guild Gallery at the Galleria Mall Henderson NV.
Night time ocean bell made back to the studio safe.
It looks like I am going to finish up this bell today at the Las Vegas Artists Guilds gallery I’m here from 2:00 to 9:00 today. The bell is getting better. The tree is in. The painting is based off my photos of Dead Horse state park UT.
Done for the day at the Las Vegas Artists Guilds gallery back next Tuesday 6 to 9. The oil painting needs to dry. Then add highlights and shadows. Then add the leaves.
Second break at Las Vegas Artists Guilds gallery The back ground is drying.
First break at Las Vegas Artists Guilds gallery. The oil painting’s cloth is still in the ugly stag. I really don’t copy my photos. The painting will tell a simple story.
I put “Oil can on truck rim” back up on the easel for shadows and highlights. It made it have more depth. It’s a 8″ x 10″ oil painting done here at Las Vegas Artists Guilds gallery at the Galleria Mall.
Old truck needed highlights and shadows. It looked flat it needed another layer of oil paint to push the house back. I’m at the gallery until 9 today. Then back next Tuesday 1:00 to 9:00
“The old garage” My photo came a small town of Thompson Springs UT. The painting looked more like garage than a Cafe. 8″ x 10″oil painting is on a canvas board.
