My partner and I were at the SMFA Art Sale reception last night -- but since the sale started at 11 AM, we didn't see my framed piece (Cardinals Communing) on the wall, as someone had bought it a half-hour before we arrived! The sale, which benefits SMFA students and programs, continues through this Sunday (today and Sat. 11-7, Sunday 11-5) and I still have some of my shrinkwrapped pieces in the racks for browsing. https://smfa.tufts.edu/events-exhibits/art-sale
As an alumna of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston ("Museum School"), I'm offering for sale some pieces in their annual Art Sale, which benefits students and programs. Sale open to the public this Thurs--Sat 11AM-7PM, Sun 11AM-5PM, with a reception Thursday night 5:30-8 PM (I'll be there).
Sales on all art are 50%--100% donated to the Museum School. You can browse the offered pieces on the SMFA Art Sale Artist Directory, including my own at https://tufts.force.com/ArtSaleVF/ArtistProfile?Id=003o00000100y70AAA
@adamk678 Figuring it out on your own is how you develop your own style! Influences are OK, but bringing together several influences -- and seeing how they solve specific problems, is the real goal. Seeing how it feels, how close you get to looking great. Pushing yourself is part of it.
@Corvusrobotica I like the waves in particular, good peaks and gradient washes.
@yorik Complicated architecture is something I find really hard to get right, including the proportions!
@hntooter Good riddance to bad rubbish.
Here's _Cardinals Communing_ with watercolor over the scratchboard. This is this year's holiday card, and it's all printed and ready to sell at MICE this weekend. The card crop is a little narrower horizontally than the framed version, which I'm offering in the School of the (Boston) Museum of Fine Arts alumni Art Sale next month. #mastoart
Scratchboard completed -- watercolor tomorrow. Not 100% happy, but I never am. #mastoart
@AesAthena It's a Wordpress site that has no posts in it. It says "Hello, World!" What browser are you using to view it? I use Firefox, and when a change to my website doesn't automatically load, I hit the Reload button (the one that looks like an arrow chasing its own tail).
Working on this year’s holiday card, which I’ll also have in the SMFA benefit Art Sale. Still need to figure out the transition from the background to the figures. Once that’s done, I’ll go over it with watercolor — the female cardinal on the left, the male n the right.
@condopotato No, the former means praising yourself, something that is typically done in front of other people. I can't say the same for the latter.
Busy getting ready for Cambridge (MA) Open Studios -- but in the meantime, tonight I'll be at the reception for the COS Preview (a group show of COS participants -- I have a piece from my comic "Laird Macguffin's Treasury") at Cambridge Art Association. If you're in the Boston area, it's at 25 Lowell Street near Mount Auburn Hospital. Join me tonight, 6--8 PM! http://www.cambridgeart.org/
