Wow! Last night the Clarksburg League for Service Auction was a grand success, raising money for the Amy's Attic project serving need folks of the community. This years event featured the art of the WVwatercolorSociety, along with other Items in a silent auction. My contribution was six small still life paintings that were set up in a Chinese auction. There were many bidders who put tickets into the jars by my paintings who stopped me during the evening to say they were hoping to get one of them. Those folks are always so complimentary! I got several compliments from members of the WVWS who attended who hadn't seen my recent projects. They commented on the techniques I am using and I told them the auction paintings "made" me work to get finished. The best way to improve is to practice, so THANK YOU to the Clarksburg League for Service for challenging me to be a better painter!
The next project for the League is to create a 2014 calendar featuring the artwork from the artists of WVWS. All proceeds from this calendar will benefit Amy's Attic. I've already ordered two, and plan to get more once they are printed, to give as gifts. My painting for the calendar will be "Mimi's Beans"
See any League or WVWS member to order yours!
I think it is important to share our process with others, just as we gain from watching other artists work.
