“The Ukazoo Art Exhibit”
Third of the Nine Oil Paintings displayed
“Still Life-Vase and Apples”
16” x 20” Oil on Board
When beginning this painting, I have jokingly referred it as “my first serious” oil painting.
This is also the image I used for the postcard/email/social media invites, website Home page, and any promotion for the “Ukazoo Art Exhibit”.
Nod of thanks to close friends, Lee, Deborah and their daughter Katelyn, as well as their family members and close friends that attend their Thanksgiving dinners each year. Over the past several years, I have joined them for this Holiday dinner and part of the evening has become my annual “Show & Tell” of recently completed art work. Along with a few other pieces, “Still Life” was the most recent finished painting. It is their viewpoints and encouragement of my art during these once a year displays that always add a boost of confidence to my motivation to continue exhibiting my artwork publicly. With “Still Life” as the third finished painting (since the Antreasian Gallery exhibit), a fourth in progress and another painting being prepped to start, it was during this evening that I knew that I would start to consider the next location for another exhibit.
Not to forget, there is still the reminder of the upcoming new project to be posted Monday June 16th. Added to the flashing lights, musical fanfare, confetti and the fireworks of last weeks:
“COMING, NEW PROJECT, KEEP TUNED FOR THIS EXCITING EVENT”
Are jugglers with flaming batons.
And again, still it is difficult for me to make such a loud announcement, so softly I say, please keep following my journey, more neat art stuff is on the way.
