Well I finally got the works framed and the they are proudly hanging at the Putnam County Library. Isn’t a huge place but it does have a great location in the building, hard to miss seeing it. This is a program that Stacie Johnson of the library management team fostered for local artists. I have the privilege to be hanging July thru August, since there is limited space I plan on rotating my works every 2 to 3 weeks. Also keeps my fan base from getting bored looking at the same pieces all of the time. I must say it does feel pretty good to have your work displayed in public and feedback from a lot of you bloggers gave me the confidence to do it…THANKS !
So if you happen to be rolling around Cookeville, Tennessee between now and the end of August…drop on by the library Mon-Sat and check me out. Oh, sorry about the picture best I could get, this tall moody, but friendly guy kept mugging while my son took photos…you would think he was the artist or something…
OH, there is also another ART display as you come in from a Tenn. Tech professor of art , Sally Crain-Jager, pretty good stuff…so if my stuff doesn’t hold your interest make sure you give her’s a look.
Mixed media 18×24 in. on canvas. Back in the day part of studying photography was you did your own developing and printing, very challenging and costly till you got what you wanted. In this piece I incorporated some discarded B&W nature shots into my painting, along with some discarded fabric from the textile lab. My kids call it the dirty underwear picture, but I never was that cutting edge back then. A closer look and we can see a typical Kansas Winter setting near some fence rows. I also used a brite red cinnamon wrapper to add texture and color. This is a piece that has had no issue (my wife likes it) finding a home in a main traffic area in my house over the years. Talk about slow, I started this in 1974 and completed it in 1988…a story for another time.
