This year I already have a couple of ideas in the works. I've already sketched one of them and am excited about doing it. In 2009 I did a painting for a local art competition and sale. I titled it "Take This Cup." It won the Purchase Award and is hanging in the gallery at the Baptist church that ran the competition. (I didn't think it would receive recognition, much less be purchased) This is it ....
|Take This Cup - 15x30 oil on stretched canvas|
Anyway, the painting became so meaningful to me as I was painting it that unconsciously I really didn't want it to sell, but it did. I decided someday to do another - something I don't ordinarily do. After six years, I finally am where I believe I can do it. Here is a very rough sketch. It will be a little different colorwise and a few other differences, but the overall remains the same - hopefully better.
Stay tuned for the progress.
