Weekend Painting

I painted on some canvas this weekend.  I had a great time with it. I ended up with two pieces that are similar (first photo and third photo).

These look so much better in real life. The subtle colors peeking through in the background are hard to capture in a photograph.

I will be doing some more of this canvas painting over the next few weeks because I am trying to build up an inventory. I will be teaching a canvas painting class at a retreat in October and I'd like to have some of these with me for that event. The retreat is in Medora, North Dakota.

In other news...
The 2012 Series of quilts by the Twelve by Twelve International Art Quilt Challenge group (of which I am part of) will be exhibited at the Northwest Quilting Expo in Portland, Oregon on September 19-21. I wish I could go. Are you going?

  2. Yes, I will go to the Expo...it was last year's exhibit where I saw (and first learned about) the 144 12x12 pieces and was both overwhelmed and inspired. Thanks for sharing the new ones. Wish you could be here too.
