art every day 17

Today I felt like I needed some help so I turned to Cezanne.  I have been asked often if I think its cheating to copy and the answer, for me, is always no.  

I'm preparing now for an unexpectedly busy time of year coming up.  I committed to doing more shows than I have ever done within a few weeks time so I will be in full creative swing. 
For now, I am concentrating on smaller pieces and since I will be traveling over the Thanksgiving holiday I will be able to keep up the pace...I think, I hope. 

For anyone who is checking in for the first time I should mention the post titles of "art every day" is in refereance to an online challenge Art Every Day Month  put together by Leah Piken Kolidas.  You can view the list of participants here.  I'm in the studio nearly every day but I still like having this challenge to spur me on and it was definitely helpful in providing the impetus to getting this blog off the ground.
Now if I could just find the time to figure out how to add buttons...

a little abstract watercolor from last night

Below are some photos of a painting I finished two weeks ago.   I got some great feedback on the last painting that I posted the progress on so I thought I would post some photos of the beginning, middle and final states of this one.   It is 48" x 36" and sold!



If you are in the Cambridge/Somerville area this weekend stop
by the Burren for SLAM, the Saturday Local Artist Market. 
Its an execellent opportunity to browse, shop and enjoy a pint at the same time!
