|"A Favorite Spot" (in progress) 12x16 oil on linen panel|
I was going to start something new that I could do in one session because I have had trouble getting back into the three paintings I have already started. Instead I found myself lured by the colors and light in this painting of two of my fellow Art League Plein Air Painters at work along the Potomac. Back in the fall I posted some paintings that had been painted at Wide Water along the Potomac in Maryland. This is the spot where they were painted and these were two of my companions. I will most likely finish it tomorrow.
Last evening I had fun watching the auction at the Salmagundi Club that I have been going on about in the last couple of posts. I knew it could be followed online at Live Auctioneers but I did not know that the actual, live auction would be viewable. "Primal"was lot #54 and the hammer came down on the final bid which was an online bid. I found out today that the bid was from Los Angeles and the bidder was a woman I had gone to high school with and have connected with in recent years. That made the sale REALLY special! Mickie, I am so glad it is going to be living with you!
COMING UP; Next Sunday, March 11th at 2:00 P.M. "Through the Arch" hits the block at the next Salmagundi Club auction. I look forward to watching and I hope it does well! http://www.salmagundi.org/
