Sky Pads #18 is waiting while its base layer of poured paint is getting good and dry. In the meantime, I’m working on the drawing, waiting for the paint on the framing material for #17 to dry, and took the opportunity to spend a bunch of time adjusting lights and camera settings and doing some photo editing to get a good shot of this finished version of #17.
Here’s the way it looked a couple of weeks ago when I took this photo outside on a fairly dark overcast day–

The Sky Pads series is going to get another exhibit opportunity at the end of August. I was accepted to show at Taste of the Gardens, which is an outdoor event featuring music, food, and fine arts and crafts at Wellfield Botanic Gardens in Elkhart, Indiana. It’s the perfect place to set up my tent and find a captive audience who by definition are interested in natural landscapes and gardens. The other consideration for me is that there will be purchase awards–and as luck would have it there are a lot of water lilies on the grounds. Maybe whoever decides the awards will see a connection…
