The purple coneflower is an older one--actually, until today, it was the only mini-painting I had left. I'm not a big fan of making small paintings, mostly because it takes way more concentration and is definitely not good for the eyes! But it satisfies my need for "instant gratification" whereas a larger painting takes me so much longer to complete!
The gallery where I show most of my work was HOTHOTHOT today. Even with the a/c in the back and 2 fans running, the temp up front was 90 degrees! Yikes! Not very conducive for creativity, but if you're in town sometime, stop by and take a look at our art: 617 Main St., Shelbyville, KY. Or check out our website, Shelby Artists on Main.
On a side note, earlier this year I got hooked on CMT's Next Country Superstar, and the guy I was rooting for, Matt Mason, won. Here's the video made the night he was announced the winner. Keep an eye out--I think this guy is gonna be a hit!
Looks like the heat will continue here in Kentucky for a few more days...I hear the swimming pool calling!
