Beth Massey of Wake Forest Art & Frame (www.wakeforestartandframe.com) is hosting my second exhibition of oil paintings and watercolors (thank you, Beth!). “Pullen Park” is part of this exhibition. 12″x16″. Watercolor. Plein Air. Available. I did this painting few days ago. It was a beautiful evening. I love Pullen Park: it is always busy and I feel so much energy there. I have also done photo shoots there. Paddle boats were constantly moving, so, I had to paint this one from the memory. When I am painting outdoors, kids always like to stop by and comment on my work (they are brutally honest, too)! That is what makes Plein Air work so much enjoyable and unique. When I look at my Plein Air paintings, I remember not only the scene, but, the whole experience. Like the pastor who fell down while trying to stop his bicycle to see my work, or the grasshopper which stubbornly sat on my watercolor as I painted!
The opening reception is tomorrow from 5 PM – 9 PM and is open to everyone: I hope you will stop by (paintings will be on display through October).
