|"Pond Shadows" - 10 x 10 inches - oil on canvas|
I created this painting as a donation for the Chelmsford Center for the Arts upcoming "10 x 10 Silent Auction Benefit". The event is 100 days before the grand opening of the completely restored Chelmsford Center for the Arts in Chelmsford, MA. All works of art start at $50 and everyone has 100 minutes to bid. The event is on Saturday, March 24 from 7 - 10 p.m. - click here to read more if you are interested. Sounds like a fun evening and there should be some really nice artwork.
You can probably tell that I started this painting with an orange background. I didn't fuss much and just tried to let the paint flow. I was especially happy with the rocks as I was able to suggest them with just a couple of brush strokes.
This painting is my warm up for the demo I'm giving on Thursday Feb 23 7 p.m. at the Westford Museum. So, if you attend, you'll see me create something very, very, very similar...hint, hint. :)
