Paint and Draw Together
How did being retired get so busy? At least in arty things, I've been scrambling. I entered a watercolor of a fish in a juried show at the Hardy Gallery in Door County, had to deliver it two hundred miles mile last Friday, and am waiting to hear if it gets to stay there longer or if I need to have my sister-in-law collect it for me. I also have a couple plein aire paintings from 2008 at the Beloit Fine Arts Incubator, and had to frame one and get both delivered last Thursday. There's a reception tonight that I'm not going to make. A good friend had a reception for her solo show at the Monroe Art Center last night, so we drove out there. There is a little commission I have started, and need to finish, but haven't mostly because the studio has been so darned hot. The weather has cooled down some, so it's not so bad working up there today, hence this little watercolor for an online challenge.
The strawberry puts me in the mood to make strawberry rhubarb pie. Sister-in-law gave me a pick pile of rhubarb stalks, and I made sauce, but still have some left. It may be time to bake.
UPDATE - I was juried into the Hardy show! Time for pie.
