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

|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 ®

NEW E-MAIL THREAT: Someone is sending e-mails addressed to what they think is
your password. In some cases it's close, but they claim to have compromising footage of
you, which they will make public and completely damage your reputation and business
unless you pay them a specified number of bitcoins. In at least one case, the footage
was claimed to have been taken by a computer that did not have a camera, so that was
one signal that is was a fake. It was a very forceful message, and was reported to the
fraud department of the server and also to the local police - who may or may not have a
way of reporting and dealing with things like this. Beware of ransom threats, especially if
you do online banking, etc. and remember to change those passwords frequently!
|As stores and events are beginning to open, please don't think you can relax -- it's not over! It
may not be "over" for a number of years. If you're following the news, cases of the COVID virus
are increasing probably due to people relaxing, not wearing a mask, and not worrying about
"social distancing". Granted, wearing a regular mask or face covering does not protect YOU
from getting the virus, but it does protect those around you from getting it FROM you if you are
harboring it even if you don't feel sick. Even though a vaccine is being fast-tracked, it may be
while for it to be available to the masses. Take care, stay safe, no matter how much it hurts to
forgo summer fun.
