Oil on Hardboard
I went to the Peoria Art Fair yesterday down on the Riverfront. There were 151 booths with every kind of art imaginable. I really enjoyed looking at everything. There were over 800 applicants to the fair and only the best got in. It is one of my goals to be able to show my art there. I discovered a local artist there who is offering classes starting in November on Monday evenings. I signed up. I am anxious to learn more and to meet some other painters in my area.
I am a little behind on my blog finds of the week with the new grand-baby so I will list a few blogs I think are worth visiting.
Carrie's Creations has a blog called "Is This Why Your Art is Being Rejected?" It is a blog that shows the process of framing a water color.
Jeffrey Hayes has a blog post about his homemade Mahl Stick.
And finally, Mara Schasteen gives some tips for overcoming the challenges of painting Alla Prima.
