|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

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: Weiner

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO MAY BE TRAVELING be sure to check the travel advisories due
to the Coronavirus. It's already spreading, but most healthy people probably think it's just a
common cold. The danger is with those with health problems, known or unknown. Italy is one
of the areas in question at present, and lots of us travel there to paint. Discretion being the
better part of valor, please check thoroughly, and heed the advise of those in the know.

|THIS YEAR'S ART SHOW is still up in the air, seeking a non-profit
sponsor, and a location. The site of the last show flooded during a rain,
and is not a good bet to use again. If we have the show this year, it will
still be on the 3rd Saturday of October, though another event close to that
time may interfere. We will keep you posted! Arts on the River ®
