Smiling at the Guggenheim


This Saturday evening my linocut, "Goose on Lake" won Third Place at the Orange Art Association "Orange Open". There were 220 entries comprising 9 categories. "Goose on Lake" won in the Drawing/Illustration-Print Making-3D category. The Orange Open exhibit is being held at the Guggenheim Gallery at Chapman University in the City of Orange. By the way, the Third Place ribbon came with a cash prize!

Congratulations! =)

I think that the goose and ear look promising, looking forward to see it finished.

Thanks Roger for your much appreciated comment.

The goose/ear/bell/block/drape/fabric warm/cool still life has been challenging. I hope to finish it before the Summer Session Painting 1 class ends in a few weeks. Right now it remains an academic exercise.

Returning to the basics has been very exciting. Just this past week, I spent 15 hours of additional work on the painting.

Always great, though expected, news.

Bravo Bernard and well deserved. I know how hard you worked on your carvings. The goose was one of my favorites, so no surprise. Congratulations.

Thanks r! I am still amazed that cutting and inking a piece of linoleum could result in such a pleasent artistic surprise.

I look forward to seeing more on your coffee dot theme. Just thinking about your recent paintings makes my mouth water for a crumb covered donut and a carmel latte.

Our boys have been making linocuts with my husband. They have such fun. I look forward to showing this photo of yours to them. And, congratulations on the award!
