6X6 2015 Show
This is the three pieces I entered in the 6X6 Show for this year. They are all basically landscapes in one form or the other, at least that's my take on it. It's a fund raiser event for the gallery so all funds go to the gallery, but I'd be happy to know if any of mine sell, I guess that would be some justification for having done them. I changed my outlook on creating art this year over last year. Last year, my intentions were just to do something that appealed to me, having fun making it, and not worrying about the subject matter. This year, I re-evaluated that line of thinking, and thought well, the object of the show is commercial, so really it needs to be something to sell. I still have no fault with my original intention, but tweaked it a bit more to see if I couldn't capture someone's interest enough to buy.

These are the other two I submitted. I was happy they way they came out.
I ran across this recent interview with James Gurney. He's the artist and writer for the books, Dinotopia, which are books l love. His art and discussions about art are an inspiration for sure.
The Plien Air Painting below in New York City is pretty cool.
