Art show season…
The first show of the season is always exciting. After spending months on end in the studio painting I emerge to see what paintings will attract the eye of the viewers first. And I’m almost always wrong about what the favorites will be. Almost. I did pick a few that we’re in the top five but we artists are generally judging based on things the buyers don’t judge on. In the end I believe certain subjects grab the hearts of certain viewers. People love cows…I watched them smile time after time at the close up faces I painted. Perhaps animals in general? People love flowers but red flowers seem to attract more attention than other colors. Poppies, geraniums and tulips. And they love a path that leads to the beach especially if it is drenched in sunlight.
That was the first show. Now the second show — well that could be a whole different story. Stay tuned and paint on!
