With Blue Willow

24" by 36" acrylic and collage on stretched canvas. The paint goes around the gallery wrapped edges and it is wired to hang without a frame.

I did this painting for a silent auction fund raiser for The Center for Contemporary Arts. The theme is "Mood Indigo" and the holiday gala will be on Nov 17th. I had to turn in the title about a week ago before I had even begun the painting. I guess I'm an optimist at heart. It was good to have the time constraint which made it impossible to overwork. Also, I was back with my old faithful acrylics and familiar props. I have done quite a few blue polka dot paintings lately and am beginning to see the blue dots when I close my eyes. Also this week I've been in the midst of finishing sealing the floor on my new studio area and will post pictures when I can of this new space. So exciting! SOLD
