I woke up this morning to an email announcing that one of my paintings had been accepted to a show. It’s good there are portrait exhibitions that allow strange paintings to hop on board. It’s no secret that I am awful at painting people, especially faces. But I have one very weird one that fits the call at Las Laguna Art Gallery, on Laguna Beach, CA.
As with all of the other recent shows I’ve managed to jury into, this one is online. It begins November 5. You can see the show here: https://www.laslagunagallery.com/copy-of-botanical (not sure why the ‘botanical’ filename, but I suspect someone overlooked renaming it when the page was created).

More about the painting
She is the Wind Worker – driven by passion, enamored with chaos, oblivious to danger and energized by storms.
You can see all the progress pics that show the stages of painting this work at the page dedicated to this painting: Eye of the Storm. This one is mounted on foam core and can be framed with or without glazing. For those of you who enjoy weird art, the original and prints are for sale (prints not listed, yet). I can also make note cards featuring any of my paintings, although this one isn’t listed yet. If you’re interested in that, just email me at email@example.com. Note Cards are $5/ea.

That’s great! I’m familiar with Las Laguna Art Gallery. I also like that painting.
Thanks, Judy! This is the third work of mine that has managed to jury into a show in California. One day I’d like to be able to go out there and see the galleries in real life. I’ve never even been to that state.
Another congratulations, Madison. <3
Thank you, Janet 😀
Oh my goodness! I LOVE this painting! Congratulations!!
Thank you Lisa! This one was so much fun because it has more meaning to me than ‘just a portrait’. I’m not good at faces, but in this case, it didn’t matter… another reason I enjoyed it so much, lol.
