Saturday Painting Palooza Vol. 402

Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the painting of the gothic Cape May house. The photo that I will be using is seen directly below. I will be using my usual acrylics on an 8x10 canvas.

When last seen, the painting appeared as it does directly below.

The last week has been a great challenge, with both good and very bad. I did not find much time to paint as my mother passed away. Dealing with this has been difficult for both expected and unexpected reasons. I've never experienced the grief of losing a parent. Suffice it to say that my emotions have run the gamut. Added to this are the rifts now opening in my family. Things will take time to sort out.

However, I did find a few minutes to throw some paint on the canvas. I've added some blue paint to the outline of the van. I've also added green to the tree and lawn. Not terribly impressive progress but I'm surprised that this much was done. I'll have more next week.

And now to the good. The last painting, the Packard grille, was accepted for the current juried show at the Kent Art Association. Frankly, I was surprised. The tastes of the judging artists tend toward the traditional. In any event, if you are in the Kent, Connecticut area, please stop by.

The current state of the painting is seen directly below.

I'll have more progress to show you next week. See you then.

Earlier paintings in this series can be seen here.

Aww, that's awful about your mom. Wife's still not over losing her mom, a year after. :-(

Congrats on getting the Packard painting accepted! That was a good one, and deserves a little recognition.

Thanks Larry. It has been difficult but support such as yours has helped greatly.

I was really glad about getting accepted. And very surprised.
