North Carolina Artists Exhibition

The Nap one (click here to see it) was accepted into the North Carolina Artists Exhibition, sponsored by the Raleigh Fine Arts Society. The juror is Larry Wheeler, director of the NC Museum of Art. One of 60 selections from almost 600 entries. I'm pleased. The show will be up at the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts, in Raleigh, from March 2nd through April 6th.

Figure with Shawl, "stage 2"

This is more like "stage 1a"--I went in with some acrylic but lost daylight before getting paint everywhere I had planned. A detail, maybe slightly distorted from the angle on the easel.

Or maybe a tattoo. This is the first place I stopped to photograph: watercolor--ultramarine turquoise, quinacridone magenta, and quinacridone burnt orange--and graphite, 22" x 30" on 300 lb. Arches HP. The turquoise and magenta make a lovely subdued blue, not that it's visible anywhere on this painting.
