I have just been informed that I have another show this summer. All three of my treehouse paintings that I had shown in a past posting have been accepted into the Treehouse 6x6 juried show which will be held on Martha's Vineyard in West Tisbury, Massachusetts from August 5th through the 31st. As the title states, all of the works of art will measure 6x6 inches. And since I have already posted the finished product back in May, I thought that I would show the process that led me there. The top images are the initial sketches that I did and you can see that I omitted one of them. then, I did colored pencil versions to work out some of the kinks, although I didn't do one for The Arboreal Temple, which was a bit weak, I thought. But hey, they liked it anyways.
The gallery is called Treehouse Studios and the reason for this is because there is a very old oak tree right next to the building and is somewhat of a landmark. I thought that that was kind of cool. For the show they are printing up a booklet of all the artwork in the show and will be selling them at the show and the profits will benefit local affordable housing funds.
