FOR SALE -REALLY CHEEP (CHEAP)!
This frame is for sale - it is HUGE, will take a 24 x 36
inch canvas, and molding is 6 inches wide.  It
originally held a Thomas Kinkade painting that was
irreparably damaged, and my neighbor asked me to
sell it.  I do not usually work this big, and this frame is
HEAVY!  I will consider any reasonable offer ( will
share the results with my neighbor) so e-mail me at
    
STILL AVAILABLE!  Not quite free, but really good
price.

Sketching Under the Skylights Exhibition Reception

Join us as we welcome the wonderful work of the Sketching
Under the Skylight participants to the Bo Bartlett Center! This
exhibition is FREE and open to the public and as are the
Sketching Under the Skylight sessions!

Sketching Under the Skylights started at the Bo Bartlett Center in
February 2019. Being surrounded by Bo Bartlett's fabulous,
mammoth paintings is a source of inspiration to many, so we
decided it would be wonderful to have a model and invite the
public to come see us create and join in.

What is the saying? Go big or go home! 2019 has been a breakout exhibition competition year of sorts for this artist! Here's my
best attempt at answering "why?"

1. Making the move from creating 1/2 sheet (15" x 22") to full sheet (22" x 30") works:
When all things are equal in execution, a larger painting commands a stronger presence. Period!

2. Embracing the pouring technique:

This has helped me to focus on light and value placement and to break away from rendering so many details. My works now
have a more painterly feel.

3. Remaining disciplined in scheduling time to work on competitive pieces: You can't apply for a juried exhibition without
inventory! Happily, mine is growing!

4. Timing is just right:

A message from Jean Weiner, who moved from Georgia to Iowa:
Earlier this month I launched a YouTube channel, Weiner Watercolors. The purpose for this channel is to
share videos showing many of the processes I use when creating small format original paintings.
Completed works will be offered in my online eBay and Etsy shops. Several time lapse videos are already
loaded for fun! Soon you'll find step by step tutorials in real time with special "blooper" guest appearances
by Jazzy, our cat! I hope you will subscribe to the channel for watercolor inspiration. Here's the link:
