Sunny Summer Sunflower on Yupo Paper
"The first week of August hangs
at the very top of summer,
the top of the live-long year,
like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel
when it pauses in its turning."
~ Natalie Babbitt
SUNNY SUMMER DAYS

The weather here has finally cooled off a bit and we haven't had any rain for two whole days! The summer is speeding by faster than ever. I can hardly believe that tomorrow is the first day of August. The past couple of months have been a very busy and happy time for me.
In addition to my demo at the Dick Blick Grand Opening event scheduled for 2 - 4 pm on August 22nd in NY, NY,
I'll be doing the Third Thursday Art Demonstration at the Arts Center in downtown Hammonton, NJ on August 15th from 7- 9 pm. It's
Yippee For Yupo
- with a Hot, Hot, Hot Salsa theme! It's a free demo and salsa tasting event. What a great combo! Open to the public, it is sure to be a fun and entertaining evening. Hope to see some of you local people there.
I will also be holding a
Yippee For Yupo
Watercolor Painting on Yupo Paper
- at the
Hammonton Arts Center
every Saturday during the month of September. Participants will discover a looser, more forgiving way to work in watercolor. This fun class will be a jump start to watercolor for beginners and can add excitement and variety to the skill set of more accomplished painters. I will provide a link as soon as c
lass information is posted on their website.
Below are a couple of the work-in-progress shots I took while painting "
Sunny Summer Days
First a background wash was added, wet- into - wet.
The second step - adding the stem and petals.
And a little tidbit unrelated to art - Yesterday I placed 36th out of 10,000 entries in a slot tournament at
in Atlantic City, NJ. My prize was $150. in slot dollars.
Not that exciting of a prize, but Jerry and I were very pleased with my placing!
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by. I look forward to your comments and truly appreciate every single one!
