Early Lynn Plein Air Art and Upcoming Art Show
I have been so focused lately on self publishing my book, One Fish Taco and Half an Order of Guacamole A Year of Drawing at Tacos Jalisco, I have had little time for much more. (except sewing a wall hanging pocket thing my grandson asked for, wrapping Chaunkah gifts, working, and now getting ready for an ART SHOW in Davis, CA in January.)
What will I take to that show? I am bringing small art quilts and some ink/watercolors to hang in a very cute consignment shop there called The French Cuff. (130 G. St. Davis, CA). In preparing I was looking through my early art and came across these two ink watercolors I did outdoors here in town.
I remember sitting in front of the Chamber of Commerce building and a man coming out of the building seeing me there. He said something about when I was done perhaps they'd want to hang it in the chamber! I laughed. I was just making my very first ever art...hang it? You've got to be kidding!
On another day I sat in the sprinkling rain under a store front awning using masking glue for the first time to map out the bricks on a building across the street.
I am pretty proud of these first endeavors of venturing outdoors to draw and paint. Maybe they are worthy of hanging!?
I think I will take some Tacos Jalisco drawings to the art show. But I like these too. Hum? What do you think?
