I have been keeping busy, mostly with my painting, much to the dismay of the housecleaning. Well, what is more interesting? Now really, not much of a question is it?
I am still going to class at the Casa de la Cultura twice a week. This semester the days have been changed to Mon. and Wed. so that took some getting used to.
There I am still working on the 3rd Blue Door painting, it seems I am getting no where fast on that one. Lots of detail on that one also, trying to make it look like a hand carved door from many years ago. Oh well, I suppose slow and sure will eventually get it done. It seems like I have been working on Blue Doors forever. When this one is done I am going to stop doing doors for a bit.
At home I have been doing some pastels and some oils.
The Tiger that I did, sold the first day that I posted it on my Facebook page and I really liked that one, so I am trying another one. This time a baby one. Not much done on it yet, so no photo; but I intend to work on it tomorrow for a bit.
I am also doing an oil, (on a wood panel) of the boat at night that I did a pastel painting of. I really like this photo and thought I would like to try it in oils, so I am.
At home I am also working on the oil, (on canvas) of the church at Magdalena, Sonora. It is coming along and I now have a lot of it base coated. I need to work more on the church now as it is behind the trees, foliage, etc. in the photo.

Yesterday I took some of my Pastel Paintings to a small sale over in San Carlos. This sale is not the greatest venue for selling art as it is a sale of mostly used articles.
I did sell a couple of the small bird pastels, so that was good.
Not sure if I will go to this sale again or not. The person running this event is hoping to get a once a month art only sale going; so I will wait and see what happens with that.
Tomorrow I am going to go to the first meeting of the year for the San Carlos Art League. I have never been to any of their meetings before so am not sure if I will join or not. They meet once a week for class/meeting, etc.. I will see what I find out tomorrow before deciding if I want to join and go there once a week or not.
