I have been in the fine arts / graphic arts business for many years, working in watercolor, pencil, pen and ink, acrylic, acrylic airbrush and computer art (with experience in Photoshop and Illustrator). I display in local galleries, and do illustration for a wide variety of venues.

Contest

Well, this was a new experience!  The local Peninsula Music & Arts Society is hosting an art contest for our area - and I chose to participate.  The contest is unique, in that, there was a time limit of three days to complete your work - from Wednesday, May 4th until Friday, May 6th.  I took about 15 hours to finish my entry, but it was a marathon.  I'm not use to painting long stretches of time (since I've retired).  At any rate, my entry is titled:  "One Dollar" - acrylic.  Everyone's work was the same size -
16" X 20".

Personal show

I haven't had a personal show in ages.  I was complaining about not being able to show that acrylic nude I painted a couple of months ago - that most venues are worried about showing nudes.  A friend who works at an artists' supply store in the next town to mine, arranged with her boss to let me hang things there for the months of May and June.  They gave me 16 foot of wall space, so I grabbed up as many pieces as I could.  I ended up hanging 18 items - both watercolor and acrylic.  I realize it will be mostly other artists that see these, but I am just happy to have them out of the house for "some air".
