After arriving home from visiting family more than a week ago I caught a cold and haven't been able to paint at all. Which is also why I haven't been very diligent about visiting everyone's blog (sorry). Instead I've been resting as much as possible.
Several fellow bloggers asked that I post the paintings that were juried into the show at the San Juan Capistrano Mission since they live out of the area.
The first painting "Double Trouble" (12 X 9 oil on canvas panel) got the highest score out of all three from the judge. I almost didn't enter it but, decided to because it's an unusual subject and also because William Wray (an amazing painter who I look up to) left me a brief positive comment on it when I posted it to my blog.
Next is "Attrition" (9 x 12 oil on canvas panel). This is the other painting that will be hanging in the show. I was very happy with the brushwork and composition in this. Notice the tiny dots on the rocks, that's wind-blown sand embedded into the paint. One of the hazards of plein air.
The last painting was chosen as an alternate for the show. So, if another painting sells this one could be hung in its place. Titled "Irvine Wash, Fall" 16 X12 oil on canvas panel.
I'll also be participating in the art sale that same weekend. Many local artists will be showing and selling their work in the gardens of the Mission. I'd love to meet you if you are able to stop by and see any part of the show!
