I got "hung" at City Hall!


"Dinghies at Rest" 6x6" Pastel on sanded paper

I got hung at City Hall! No, not with a noose! Although there are probably a few people who'd like to see that one! My work was hung today at Beaverton City Hall in the offices of Mayor Denny Doyle. This was a spur of the moment opportunity, and I was prepared for such an event. So this morning I went down with 16 of my pieces and hung them up. Tomorrow, I will return to hang 3 more larger pieces in the foyer of that building. Location is listed on the right in my "Upcoming Events" section for time and dates.

Here is a new piece that I'd call a "study" only because it's such a small piece. I like working on these small 6x6" studies because they give me the opportunity to see if the piece works before committing to a large work. Not only that, they are fast to paint! Although my previous post was just that; a large, somewhat-experimental piece, I'm not disappointed with the outcome. I probably should have done a study first because the gold leaf was such a messy process. Oh well....anyway, this little one has a nice composition. I've used a predominantly cool palette here with just a smudge of complimentary orange. Enjoy!

Thanks!
It's nice to get feedback on this little one. I wasn't so sure on the color choices here, but since you guys like it, I'll take it!
