Video end of the rink - wall - mirror ball

October 21, 2016
Mirror Ball
This week I concentrated on the mirror ball.  This photo was taken with the UV lights on.  The next thing will be the beams coming off the mirror ball and I found my laser level and aimed it at the wall and that will be a good way to draw my lines.  After that, I'll hit the yellow outlines here and there on the silhouettes and do a little other touch up and I'll be moving on the THE BIG EXCITING SIDE WALL!!!!  Still trying for a xmas deadline, what do you think?  Will I make it?

Next weekend I'll be working for three days in a workshop in Lyme CT, plein air with Stape.  This will be a challenge, watch it snow or something.  :)
Other art this week
Yesterday I made my annual pilgrimage to Cyclorama's 20th Anniversary Boston International Fine Arts Show, pretty much an annual affair for me and my friend Ed Lemay--then we had dinner at MFA and saw the current exhibit and this morning I went to the church where I used to paint portraits twice a month.  I'll be rejoining the group in November.

I also sat for my portrait this week with the wonderful Mark Hayden C.M.  It looks fantastic already!  Mark painted a portrait of my husband, George, that I appreciate every day.  I thought it would be good to have the set to pass down to Mr. Marc. In the meantime, it will be good company for George :)

Video end wall, last week and this week

After taking a break in the progress, I was hard at work last week and was able to finish the lower portions of the end wall where the video screens are.  This week coming, I'll work on the top section.
Here are some photos, realize that some are taken with white lights and then with UV lights.
The light you see is not a light it's the paint under UV light.

Finished section, you can't see the yellow for some reason, my phone doesn't take great photos.

This is how it looks under white light.

This is how it looks under UV light. It looks better in person.  You still can't see the yellow.

Kim English Workshop, end of September 2016

I'll be attending the week-long workshop in Gloucester, Ma. with Kim English.  It promises to be a grueling art boot camp.  Why do I do this to myself?  Anyway, to get the gory details, go to my adventures blog.

Otherwise, the current news is that I'm still working on the mural at the rink, and expect to be finished now around Christmas, let's hope.  I haven't been there much lately because of all my travels, but last Sunday I was there for 5 hours and got a little bit done.  I took some photos and will post them soon.
