|Hello Everyone and Welcome New Subscribers,|
Here's what we've been up to...
Beth recently finished some small jewels for our upcoming shows. ..
Here is a nibble of a new 30"x18" composition of Zinnias. The finished painting will be in the Schuler School of Fine Art's Holiday Exhibition...
I finished the sister painting to "Rind" (from last month's newsletter) called "Flesh". The pair will be in the Wilson show...
Here are some additional paintings of mine for the upcoming Schuler Holiday Exhibition...
Hooper's Island sunrise 8"x10"
Clouds over the Blackwater 8"x6"
To make a long story short, our gallery in Salem Mass, Marine Arts Gallery, sold my painting "Autumn Icons" and his clients might be interested in a similar painting. I already had over $60 worth of Gourds in our studio from the painting I did in last month's newsletter, so I went to work on another large gourd composition. The gallery owner mentioned trying it with a blue background with the similar grey table of "Autumn Icons". I thought of trying an arangement of the various gourds backlit with the blue gradations of a clear sky. Although I'm not sure it is finished yet, here are the steps to this point...
Umber drawing on red ochre background
Mass in the sky and lights, begin large pumpkin
First sitting complete on all gourds
all the pieces are in place; time to make decisions
Yet Un-named Gourd Painting, 27"x34"
I moved the white pumpkin to allow for some space, reworked the table, repainted sky, and added glazes and details. The photo made the right side too dark and there is some distortion, but I will get the official shot for the website.
We attended the opening to the American Artist Professional League's 83rd Annual Juried Exhibition at the Salmagundi Club in Manhattan. As Participating artists, we were invited to attend an hour and a half demonstration by Charles Brandenberg.
Here we are with our paintings...
Beth was honored with the "Gamblin Artists Colors Co. Award for Still Life in Oil" for her painting "Ornate Magnolias" ...
North Light Books recently put out a new book entitled "Strokes of Genious 3, Best of Drawing". My scratchboard, "One Way or the Otter" is featured in the book. We will be putting up a link soon if anyone is interested in purchasing the book, a copy will be on display at the Schuler School Exhibition in December.
Fine Arts Studio Online features artists who use their websites in email blasts called "Informed Collector". They featured me on Monday, November 14th, Issue #752. My work was described as "Polished, elegant work that incorporates an important message into the lyrical imagery". In the quick facts section they mentioned that I am "Married to extraordinary artist Beth de Loiselle (Guerin)" which is great because I didn't even know they were featureing me; they offered that themselves.
