At the Bend in the Road

I'm happy to announce that "At the Bend in the Road" was accepted into the Temiskaming Art Gallery's Juried Competition! This is an annual fundraiser for the Gallery. Approximately 24 paintings are chosen to be in a day-planner that the Gallery sells to raise funds. The day-planners are beautiful, and a practical way to get a daily dose of the creative talent of our local artists!
There will be a showing of the art work featured in the 2010 day-planner sometime in the latter part of June at the Wabi Iron and Steel Gallery. I understand that the day-planners will be available for sale then. I will keep you posted as to the date and time!

"At the Bend in the Road" is an Acrylic and Ink Collage painting. It is based on a photo that my husband took on his way to a friend's farm on "Casey Mountain". I liked the view between the tall trees into the sweeping valley with it's golden fields sheltered by the hills and trees in the distance. The sun was just coming up, so the dramatic sunrise lends interest. I tried to capture the mist lying close to the ground, but I'm not sure I pulled it off. The tiny barn with the sunlight glinting off the roof is meant to be the focal point. I think I get away with that - just!

This painting is for sale, but can't be delivered until after the show in June - unless you live in the Temiskaming Shores area, then you can take it now as long as I can borrow it for the day of the show!

Congratulation, Julie, how exciting! Beautiful piece and I do love the sunlight glancing off the roof of the barn.
