I wanted to share that this painting was selected for The Art League’s October All-Media Membership Show, the juror was Marlene Rothacker. Ms. Rothacker serves as Senior Exhibitions and Marketing Manager for International Arts and Artists, a non-profit organization dedicated to increasing cross-cultural understanding and exposure to the arts.
The Opening Reception will be held in the gallery at the Torpedo Factory, Sunday, October 7th from 2:00 to 4:00 pm, and here is a link if you are curious about the Art League that is located in the Torpedo Factory Arts Center in Old Town Alexandria, http://www.theartleague.org/
I worked on this painting on and off since the end of May, there was a period this summer where all devoted painting time was dedicated to this piece. I am very happy with its outcome and to date this is the largest and most developed painting I have completed. I used the typical wet-in-wet techniques that I like so much, and I also played with glazing to deepen the shaded areas of the scene. This image is adapted from a 1999 photograph I took in Carmona, Spain as I was completing research for my Master’s of Architecture thesis.
