I went to the “Forgery” show at the Froggwell Institute here on Whidbey Island. There were some very nice pieces in this show including one by my fellow artist Dan Burroughs. My favorites were the Emily Carr pieces. Just beautiful.
I also went to the Artists of South Whidbey show held at the Whidbey Island Center for the Arts. As was expected, the show was a mixed bag with some very good pieces in it. My family agreed that the best of show was Deon Matzen’s “Diamond T” painting. This is an outstanding piece.
As I’ve mentioned, I am working with water color at present and becoming more enthused as my technical skill develops. Water color presents exciting characteristics which constantly jump out at me as intentional accidents. The piece below is one I finished today.
