Art Show

Alright, here are the gory details. The Taylorsville Art Show is THIS saturday (March 21st) from 12 noon until 4:00 pm at which time there will be an awards ceremony. If you want to be able to vote on the people's choice award, you should get there before 4. It is held in Taylorsville City Hall which is just off 26th west and 54th south. Coming from the north or south on 2-15 West, exit on redwood road (to the right if you are coming from the south, left off the exit if you are coming from the north) to go north on redwood then turn left/west on 5400 S, turn right/north on 2600 West and another right onto Taylorsville Blvd. (5320 South) and its in the second building. (if my directions suck, call me or mapquest it)

Unfortunately with all of the plethora of infectious disease I've had to deal with in the past few weeks, and some stupid paint issues one of the three paintings I set out for myself to complete for the show will not be done it time. Normally my oils dry anywhere from a day to maybe three. (I don't usually paint very thick) But, just my luck the green I am using seems to have a serious problem drying. I painted some preliminary background vegetation, and TWO WEEKS later it was still just as wet as when I first painted it. I would understand maybe tacky... but no, I picked it up to move it, sure that it would be dry, and smeared paint all over.

However, I still have two watercolor paintings that go along with my elephant in the sprinkler painting that will be finished. One is of a rhino on a see-saw, and the other is an alligator in a bathtub. They are all eventually going to be used in a children's book I'm writing. So, if you want to see them, come to the Art Show!
