|Reading at the Beach|
by Jane McElvany Coonce
For anyone who missed the show, "It's A Steal", you need to make sure you put it on your calendar for next year. It was a great success. All paintings were $75 or less. The last post I displayed a painting of "The Flute Player" which sold! The one on today's post "Reading at the Beach" also sold! Actually, 8 of my paintings found a new home, so I was pretty happy. The painting above was one that I did "plein air". That is, I set up on the beach and painted this woman reading her book. It must have been a VERY good book because she never noticed that I was painting her.
Whenever we do a show like this, it's exhausting. So I'm going to put my feet up tonight and relax. But tomorrow is a new day with paintings waiting to be born. Don't want to deny their right to exist, so I'll start again tomorrow.
