I am going to put something in A.I.R. Gallery’s (annual benefit postcard exhibit (Wish You Were Here). I made these two 4” x 6” paintings and can’t decide which of these two to put into the show. Feedback is most welcome.
It is a wonderful exhibit—last year over 400 artists exhibited their work. All proceeds of the exhibition help fund the gallery’s programs, including their fellowship program for under represented and emerging women artists. I bought two postcards.
Making these two pieces have opened up a whole new way of working for me. It usually takes me months to complete one piece but I did each of these in one day. I’ve gone on to do another painting (not a postcard) done in this “quick” mode (it is all relative). I guess it is good to switch things around every once in a while. But the process of making these is definitely less meditative and the sense of accomplishment seems too easy.
