I did it! I finished a whole new body of work for my show with Brent next week! Local folks, come and see it! I have my daily pieces...and some fun side projects (more about that below) that will be on display and available for purchase! Come to the show!!
...so I switched gears for the last week of my series...decided to make some smaller pieces, partly because I wanted to have some variety in the upcoming show...and also have some different price points for folks wanting to buy...and just 'cause I wanted to make some bathing suits!
So...here they are;
Annnnd...what is a tropical vacation without a tropical cocktail? (To my students that may see this...these are NOT for you kiddos...sorry, these are for grown folks)
...and just because I allow myself to be distracted...I also am making a side series of paintings based on photos I took at a local greenhouse last weekend and also my early morning trips to the beach :)
...just a couple of things inspiring me this weekend...
For starters, LIVE MUSIC!
Here is the series so far (below) ...but first, read this...ummm...disclaimer? Is that what this is? Kinda.
I wanted to make sure and make a note that the final images won't be loaded to FB and/or my web for a few reasons. For starters- dry time. I work on these paintings usually at night, and usually go back into them the next day with more paint, and a final layer of drawing with conté crayon. Also, I like to take the final pics outside during a certain time of day...sometimes I am napping so I miss that window.
But the work is being made, that's for sure! (heck, even some extra stuff!) If you check my updates to Facebook/Instagram and Tumblr you will see all of the most recent happenings, so check those out of you have a minute. Thanks! - JLG
...I've decided I would give myself the freedom to add to some of my previous 2016 collections...it will give me a headache later with inventory and my OCPD organization/numbering...but so be it. -JLG
