One by One

Evening ShadowsJust finished this painting for the One by One Show and Sale being held in July.

Mine will be one of potentially hundreds of paintings in all media completed on 12 inch by 12 inch stretched canvas. And all paintings will sell for $100 each. A great opportunity for gift buying or to start an art collection inexpensively.

Sponsored by the Belleville Art Association, the show will be held at the BAA gallery on Front St. in Belleville from July 12 to Aug. 6 with an evening reception on July 21 from 4.30 to 7.30 p.m. Email me for more info at bob at bobpennycook dot com.

This painting started as a wash of acrylic yellow followed by rice paper then another wash of a different yellow value. Then I built up the foreground with blues, greens, violets and oranges using shop towels, pen nibs and carved stamps..

The painting is called “Evening Shadows Make Me Blue” and yes, that’s a line from an old Connie Francis song, and yes, that line kept looping through my mind as I painted the piece.Go figure. And does anybody even remember Connie Francis?

    I need to “Get Crackin’!”, Bob. June will soon be here, and the deadline is looming. That’s a lovely image – awesome texture, also. Do I remember Connie???? As a 13 year old, I thought I was a Connie Clone – tried to wail my way throughout my teen years – found out who my real friends were. Ha! 🙂

    Love to sink into the layers and luminousity of your painting here. Thanks for the tips with rice paper, stamps, and paint.
    I miss Connie too.
