“The Ukazoo Art Exhibit”
First of the Nine Oil Paintings displayed
Oil on Board, September, 2012
16” x 20”
The first phrase of the “Journey to Ukazoo” and the Art Exhibit have concluded.
There are many thanks to be given to friends that have helped along the way. I hope to mention as many as I can over the next nine weeks and the various ways they effected this wonderful journey.
With the posting of this painting, the first of the nine paintings I completed, the earliest participant in beginning to prepare for the next (yet unknown) art exhibit I mention a thank you to, is Karen. As my Thursday morning art teacher she helped push me (had a bruise on my shoulder for two weeks) to use the intense background colors in this painting.
It is only within the past three years I made the decision to learn how to work with Oils. During the past two years, Karen, is the second of two fine artists who have worked to teach me various oil painting techniques that I can apply to my subject matter and style of imagery.
“Ice Scream” is my lighthearted ode to Edvard Munch’s “The Scream” (The Scream of Nature).
On tap after the Art Exhibit Postings (June 9th) is a new project of which I have been given the advice that I should make this announcement in a grand matter.
“COMING, NEW PROJECT, KEEP TUNED FOR THIS EXCITING EVENT”
I could also add:
FLASHING LIGHTS– FLASHING LIGHTS– FLASHING LIGHTS
SOME MUSICAL FANFARE
“GET READY FOR THE NEXT BIG EVENT”
SHOOTING CONFETTI FROM A CANON
MORE FLASHING LIGHTS
But I can’t seem to bring myself to do that Big Sell type of self-promotion, so softly I say, please keep following my journey, more neat art stuff is on the way.
