I’m grateful my painting What it Takes to Sing (30″x40″ acrylic) was juried into a national women’s art show that opened today in Hartford. My placement in the show wasn’t terrific; it is in the hall between the three gallery spaces. I think this painting is better viewed from a distance, but it got a lot of attention during the opening anyway. The close quarters had people really looking at it in detail, which can be good too.
Looking at my painting, can you see the profile of a head with the mouth open emitting air on the left, the focal point at the thought of the sounds on the vocal chords, those emanating sounds encircling, while the eye is only suggested, since it is not needed to sing?
Below you can see some of the other art in the show, including a photo of a fellow blog reader of yours with her painting. She came from out of state to be in this show. I know her from last June’s Plein Air Retreat in Maine, and it was fun to unexpectedly see her again.
You can see the whole show at Arts Center East, 709 Hartford Turnpike, Vernon, CT 06066, until September 10, 2021.
