18 down, ? to go

Floating or cascading? Sky Pads 18

Finished this one a couple of days ago but let it sit just to “make sure”. Then photographed it last night. I had a lot of trouble getting rid of the shiny glare until I remembered that I neglected to put the soft umbrellas on my lights. Sometimes I can’t believe how many routine things that make your life easier, say in photography for instance, that I forget when it’s not something I do every day. Solution: up the pace of painting production. Likelihood of that happening. zero!

Exhibit update: I received an invitation (via a recommendation from a local artist friend) to exhibit Sky Pads at the Niles District Library in Niles, Michigan in September. One wouldn’t expect a library (think dark rows of bookshelves) to be a welcoming spot for an art exhibit, but this library is outstanding. It has tons of glass, beautiful light, large open spaces, and long open walls. Also lots of foot traffic. Perfect! Stay tuned for some lovely gallery photos of the latest Sky Pads pieces next month!

    Lovely work. I let paintings “sit” too, just to check that they are working. My husband does the studio photography, he’s better at it than me. I prefer outdoor photography.
