Acceptance into the Upcoming Canterbury Art Show


I'm happy to announce that one of my paintings on stretched canvas, Alive in You, has been juried in for the Labor Day weekend Canterbury Art Show in nearby Rumson, NJ.




This painting was created with Golden High Flow acrylics and my stencils Sassy Spray (6" x 6") and It's a Jungle Out There (9" x 12").  The method I used is described in the Absentee Artist chapter of Creative Paper Art by Nancy Welch and it's shown in Pat Dews' DVD Designing Great Starts with Texture and Form (available at Cheap Joe's Art Supplies.)

I'd been pleased with this painting even before it had been juried in at this show; I had even ordered a mug here with this artwork wrapped around it.  The mug is prettier in person than it appears in these photos, but I'll post them anyway --






These mugs come in two sizes and I ordered the smaller version, since I prefer something lighter in weight.  I'm happy to report the mug has proven dishwasher-safe. 

Today's two featured stencils look like this --


Sassy Spray (6" x 6")

It's A Jungle Out There (9" x 12")
