I Should Have Turned Left at Albuquerque, collage/acrylic
22 x 28, Elizabeth W. Seaver
I found out yesterday that I have been chosen to paint one of six public art panels which will be displayed on the main shopping street in Old Town Fredericskburg. The artwork has no overall theme, but is meant to showcase the work of each of the artists chosen.
The panel measures 40 x 56, and the painting above was the one I submitted with my application. Those of you who follow my blog regularly may recognize the study for the painting in this post. It is possible, even likely, that I will paint over the collage in the background with a more opaque layer, but I wanted the committee to see the "under painting" process I used.
We get the panels today or tomorrow, and the painting must be finished by June 21st so that the paintings can be sealed and opened on July 2nd.
Needless to say, I am extremely pleased and excited and nervous. The rest of May and June will find me picking up the pace with my brushes.
