"THE MIDDLE OF THE JOURNEY", Pastel
The third generation of a long running journey series. This is one of three panels. (the other two are still in progress). It was included in the June show at the gallery at the Torpedo factory, always a stiff competition.
Many thanks to Karen Keating, juror, who awarded this painting Best in Show at the Capitol Hill Art League in the "I See Scapes" juried exhibition. Although this is one of my all time favorites, it didn't seem to appeal to judges and was rejected several times, until I changed the color of the mat to off white. I've certainly learned my lesson in that regard.
OWN A CABBAGE!
For all the nice people who have been inquiring about buying a Cabbage Masterpiece, I have finally opened a little store for the Cabbage Art & Scarf Invitational results.It's my first attempt, so there are probably some glitches, but I'm still pleased with it.
The scarves are also available there, but not for long . I plan to place only one order of scarves, in early November. Besides being an extremely limited edition, they will be hand signed and numbered. "Be the only one on your block (probably city, maybe state) to own a Cabbage Invitational Scarf!"
Many thanks to all the collaborators, backers, and all the thoughtful people on Facebook that have responded so positively to my work.
