Where I Stand Sunday


Today I stand near the running board of my pickup truck, checking the gas gauge, getting ready to pack and load 4 big pieces of art and being ready to drive to another town to submit my art for a "jury" of my peers. We have constant mud, hence the muddy looking garage floor surface and running board which is really dark gray.

Also, I am posting the latest oil painting from yesterday and this morning. Some time ago, I attempted to paint this still life arrangement in a much bigger version, it didn't make it off the easel. I painted over it. So, I composed it down to a "cut out" view and like it much better. I really like the little orange pot in the foreground, it is terra cotta and has a ceramic glaze on it, the light shines off of it in those parts. I never have put a plant in it, because I think it would ruin it. And amazing to myself, I think I painted five days in a row this week! WooHoo!

"Painted Pot" - oil on canvas, 6" x 6"
For Sale - it's in my Etsy shop.

"Where I Stand Sunday" is posted weekly. It helps chronicle the "journey". Too often we take for granted where we stand and what we are involved in. Used as a "vehicle" for journaling and a glance at "human geography", I; along with several others; note this day, in this way. I invite you to check "them" out, to compare and contrast the human events of Sunday in different parts of the country and maybe the globe! Would be great to get an international POV (point of view). If you would like to join in, please leave a comment below with your blog address and we will note it in our sidebar! Thanks for looking!

How did the Jury go? I love the picture of the feet and the mud. There is something there. Not quite sure what, but I love it!

Hi, I love this weekly feature of yours -- always gives me something to think about.

Thanks, the jury is still "out", although they stated in their mailing that we (there was 4 of us) would know before we left. Hmmm, like a lot of other things around here. Scrappy Kay, you should join us in the Where I Stand Sunday post!
