Salem Oregon has a wonderful art community and tries to host artist in many of thier shows around town. Case in point "Something Red" is a Juried show where artist can submit 3 works of art with major features being the color red. I only have 2 pieces that would come under consideration with those guide lines, and so I am submitting them.
Way back in 1986, (yes 30 years ago) I made a couple of watercolor paintings. one of which is shown below, A Dutch market vendor set up with his cart. I happen to find it while looking for other items in my basement and decided to recue it.
I am now working on a Patel painting of a lighthouseand will show the completed painting as soon as it is finished.
Meanwhile I am trying to get some items in the Elsinore Gallery here in Salem for thier February 2017 show.
