Saint David's Annual Art Show and Sale

The Saint David’s United Church Men’s Group holds an annual art show and sale that not only supports local artists but also injects much-needed funds back into the community.  This is an excellent opportunity to see quality artwork and support a very good cause! I am pleased to be participating in this Art Show and Sale again this year.  Things have been pretty busy for me with hanging my show "Full Spectrum" at the Imperial (still showing until November 14th).  So, I have been busily painting away for this event.

Below are three of the four paintings I will be exhibiting.   The fourth painting, well is still a work in progress.  It is a large acrylic painting of Delphinium. Stay tuned... this will most likely be my next blog post.

Painting of our Koi - "Circus"

I have decided I really like working water soluble oil paint. I am not as icky picky with details, mainly because I really have not figured out how to yet. (humour) But what I really like is the freedom I feel when I use it.  Having fun. 

I love the movement of the fish - they way they circle around when they think I am offering food.  The water moves creating variations in the reflections and are perfect for painting.  We find antics of the fish  mesmerizing. I often find myself watching them from a deck chair for long periods of time while enjoying the sun.  I called this painting "Circus" as these guys are so entertaining and so brightly colored.

These are some of our koi that live in our backyard pond. Actually I have painted one fish Hoover in this painting three times.  

This one is 24 x 24 - I think the next one will be mush larger!.
