Just about to start painting today but thought I would take a second to post. Thoroughly trashed my last painting and will start over today. Luckily I didn't have much time invested in it. The most disconcerting thing...the paper had quite an odor. Has anyone else run across that before? It is brand new. No mold. It just smelled awful once it got wet. Between the smell of chemicals and rotten milk. Took me awhile to figure out where the smell originated. That was quite a sight I'm sure. Brush in hand, sniffing everything around me. Have you ever seen the Andy Griffith episode with the pickles. Well, when Barney and Andy locate the smell of the jelly at the end of the show...that must have been my facial expression exactly. Anyway, would love to find out if anyone else has had this problem.
I am on the Arkansas Artist's Registry now and you can see some of my recently completed pieces there. I hope you enjoy the "pop art". I have had a lot of fun painting them. The exhibition at the Art Center of the Ozarks opens today so be sure and stop by to see it. I have on exhibition "Breaktime at Brick Street" and "Unquenchable Thirst". Also have "Four Grays and a Girl" in the Mid-Southern Watercolorists exhibition which opens tomorrow at the Terry Mansion in Little Rock. They are both excellent shows. Well, back to work.
