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 http://www.mfa.org/news/william-merritt-chase 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 :)
