I’m in! I dropped off my painting, “Marsh Madness,” to the Coddingtown show this morning. There is some GREAT art in this show! Makes me wish I hadn’t bothered on some level though it is good to test my work in a juried show. It is a bit hard to find as it is on the bottom of the display, midway up the aisle to where Gottschalk’s used to be but, that’s okay. You can see the painting here in my online gallery under “Paintings”.
This painting was done en plein air on an outing with my dear friend and painting bud Jean. I was trying out a new color and fell in love with it, that deep bronze-red. It matched the salt grasses. Never quite finished the painting though. It would make a good subject for a larger painting to be done at some time in the future, like so much of what I do.
