Art Group Meeting and New Painting

Woman, guitar and cat, acrylic painting, 11" x 14"
Spent some time today painting before my art group meeting. There were only five people there :-(, but we had a good time anyway showing our art around and talking about art, religion, baboons!, George Bush, etc. I almost finished a painting of a girl with a guitar and bowl of fruit, but I took it in anyway. It somehow appeared to me when I was looking at a bunch of unfinished paintings that Jerry had hung up on the wall in my art room. The canvas was a general mishmash of textures, but somehow the figure emerged and I accentuated it this afternoon. I hope to post it tomorrow (it's in the style of Picasso--one of my favorite artists!)

What a great painting! Very Picasso-esque. You also have a fun, interesting, and informative blog. Sadly, in my current job, I'm not allowed to be "controversial," (had to sign a paper, even!). So, for the time being, anyway, I'll have to live vicariously through you. Love your blog and your art, Gayle, and am looking forward to visiting it regularly. :)
