“The Ukazoo Art Exhibit”
Second of the Nine Oil Paintings displayed
“Eye to Eye”
16” x 20” Oil on Board
Besides the Nine Oil paintings on display at the Ukazoo Exhibit, there were 23 additional Pen & Ink/Watercolor/ Color pencil drawings called “Thumbnail Sketches”. These finished drawings, only 2 1/4” x 2 1/4” (Five inches framed) are selected doodles taken from my sketchbooks, that although I liked the design, most have not been developed into larger, more involved, pieces of art work. One of these doodles, Eye to Eye, from October, 2006, I periodically debated if it would become a “Thumbnail Sketch” or a painting. The recent progression of learning to paint with oils cemented the decision to develop this design into a painting.
I give a nod of thanks to the “Studio Thursday Painters” group I belong to. Continually watching their wonderfully created art projects every Thursday evening and listening to their kind words of support as I tackled the learning process of various oil techniques was important in this early phase of the yet still unknown Ukazoo art exhibit.
There is still the reminder of the upcoming new project.
Don’t know if I should repeat:
“COMING, NEW PROJECT, KEEP TUNED FOR THIS EXCITING EVENT”
I could also add to the flashing lights, musical fanfare, and confetti of last weeks text:
SOME FIREWORKS as I shout,
“GET READY FOR THE NEXT BIG EVENT”
Again, this is difficult for me to make such a loud announcement, so I will again softly say, please keep following my journey, more neat art stuff is on the way.
