Thank you to everyone who stopped in during the Art Crawl!
I enjoyed meeting so many new people, some from the neighborhood and some who had traveled from far away and just happened to be in St Paul during the crawl. I hope your feet are recovering from all of the stairs in the old buildings of lowertown, and I’m sure your brains are full from viewing so many studios and Art! The next Art Crawl will be in October.
I drew a name from the sign up for my mailing list, and “Don” from Minneapolis was the winner for “La Belle Crepe” Painting. It will go out in the mail at the end of the week. Maybe I’ll make this a more regular event, drawing out a name from the mailing list for a small art work.
I’ve been spending the evening putting finishing touches on paintings, wires on the backs of others and varnishing the finished pieces. I also decided tonight that the small painting I’ll give away on Sunday Night is the 5 x 7″ study of La Belle Crepe that I painted on March 1st. It is acrylic on Maple Art Board. So if you are on my mailing list & I draw your name, you may be become the owner of this petite painting Sunday Evening, I’ll be contacting the winner by email.
The crepes are cooking in the window, steaming up the glass on a cold February day. This is a small attmept at painting La Belle Crepe in Minneapolis, 5 x 7″ Acrylic on Maple Board, and painted with the left hand and at times both hands holding the brush, I think I will attempt painting this location larger scale later in the spring. I just had to push some paint around today.
This weekend I am learning to paint with my left hand, Dr’s orders are to let the right rest for 2 weeks, as I injured it last week, so I’m working to paint with the left. It is taking a little longer, so check back in a day or two for images to be posted, but please check out the artist links below, these are my 3 picks of the week. I caught the last day of Gregory Euclide’s paintings today at the Groveland, and they were amazing in person! Stopped for lunch at La Belle Crepe downtown Minneapolis, my culinary art pick of the week. My 3rd pick, is local sound Artist Caly Mcmorrow, whose music I am listening to while I type, if you like what you hear on her site, you can purchase music there too & she has a calendar for performances- Enough typing, I need to get back to left handed painting.
