Taking the chance with the dip pen opened up an amazing creative opportunity that goes way beyond using a Micron Pen! It pushed me to try something new and reinforced the benefits of going beyond a comfort zone.
Salmon River Fine Arts Center in Pulaski, NY is a wonderful community center that offers workshops and classes as well as hosting events in their gallery space. One of their annual events is a juried art show celebrating the Salmon River (Sept. 9-Oct. 22). Once I saw the word "juried," I immediately thought that wouldn't be a show I could participate in. However, something told me to read more about what was involved. I had taken several wonderful photos of a lovely area on the Salmon River last year and would refer to them from time to time imagining about painting for this show.
Not only did I finish the 9x12 painting, it was accepted into the art show!
Thanks for stopping by!
