holiday art show

We are ready for our holiday show! Les is out putting up “A” boards with our signs on them; the ad was in the Marquee, flyers went out; emails sent…so much for marketing! I’m including photos of the stuff hanging…there are 50+ pieces on the walls! Lots of cards! The handmade ones turned out really good! Some holiday ones and some general greeting cards. I grouped several collage pieces together and they show well. Les helped me so much putting this together – best boy friend ever ;-)…Justin came over and they put up a track lighting system…fabulous…thanks you two guys!!!
The painting today is a little oil pastel…it’s actual size is 4×6 inches…

About bonnie griffith

I am a landscape artist who works in pastels, oils and acrylics. My work focuses on representational studies of the western US. I am basically self taught with lots of workshops and studies with several landscape artists such as Bruce Haughey and Clark Elster. I live in southwestern Idaho, am a native Montanan with a strong connection to the land. I spend as much time as I can in MT painting as well other parts of the northwest. I appreciate getting out in the field and working plein air because there is nothing like completing a painting in the true light of day and visually not being compromised by the use of a photo. In my work, my goal is to produce a piece of work that draws the viewer into the painting and challenges them to explore the scene; get a sense of the time of day, the temperature, the light or lack of. If I have gotten that viewer to step out of their reality and into that painting and enjoy it, then my work was accomplished as I wished. View all posts by bonnie griffith
