Farmers Market #1 and winner of the painting.
Farmers Market #1
8x6in oil on canvas panel $125. SOLD
I have started to do a series of the Farmers Market in Santa Cruz, CA.
I took photos and did some sketches and I want to do them
while it is all fresh in my mind. This is the first one and my focus
was to capture the sun and shade.
I expected to have the winner of the Studio Tour Giveaway before
now, but dear hubby Jim has dragged his feet. It is all Wimbledon's
fault. He has been glued to the TV. It was only when I started the
heavy sighs and quiet mutterings before assuring him that it really was
quite alright if he didn't really want to do it (Tennis had finished for the day)
and with that he went off to his office
and spent quite a while diligently reading them.
Finally, he came back and told me he did not
discharge his responsibility lightly, and I was presented with a great
flourish, the person he thought should get the radish painting.
AND THE WINNER IS... ROGER AKESSON!
The reason he picked him was because he liked that Roger
said I inspired him. Lovely of you to say that Roger - thank you so much.
I think Jim was surprised at the many nice comments. He has never
read that part of my blog before. He said it was hard to choose.
I was surprised only two artists wanted the handy tool and that was
STEPHANIE BERRY and LIANA YARCKIN
(please send me your addresses)
It is a magic tool and can do many things besides how I use it
so I know they will love it.
Thank you all for the great comments...big smile...and glad so many
of you enjoyed visiting all the studios. I know I enjoyed them too.
