     Bismarck Art & Gallery Association, Bismarck, North Dakota has launched a very popular show at their gallery starting August 6th – August 30th.  Word has it that there are 300 entries this year. 

     I delivered my paintings, Zinnias I & II shown above on time this year, as well as paintings from other Minot artists.  We plan on attending the show, as this will be something to view.  All paintings are on canvas 12 x 12 size, no frames.  Hanging this show is something special, that BAGA does very well.  This show is a must see if you are in the area.  Each piece is for sale for $130.00.

     This year I decided to make a bold statement, using acrylic paints, instead of my usual media of watercolor.  I’ve renewed my interest in these incredible tools to make art.  I haven’t painted with them for years.  I’m intrigued enough to create new artwork for the up coming shows this fall. 

     Since my last involvement with acrylic paint, the mixtures are reformulated into rich, robust color and textures.  I’ve had a great time picking out new brushes, colors and canvas.  Until I’ve viewed the show, I’ll add my comments at that time with more photos.

    My husband and I viewed this wonderfully colorful show.  So many creative paintings and subjects, some smooth and some textured.  Sales were high and so is enthusiasm for next years show.
