Day 8 - Natural Light

Day 8 - Natural Light

Natural Light
Acrylic on a 10" x 10" panel
$75 (only during the challenge) FREE shipping


Artists hear the words "natural light" all the time!
Paint in "Natural Light"
Photograph in "Natural Light"

And when I painted this today I struggled once again,
getting a good photo in any kind of light.
I didn't care if it was Flourescent
Incandescent
Candle or
Sunlight.

I finally got a decent pic of it
in "Natural Light" 
on my porch
so that's it's name.

Thanks for stopping by today.

But don't quit yet,
Great stuff below!

A great friend I made several years ago during a 30 paintings in 30 days challenge, Meredith Adler has started her very own podcast about artists in the Asheville and Western North Carolina area
called Local HeARTed.
 
All sorts of artists.
Oil Painters,
Paper Sculptors
Water Colorists
Jewelry Makers
Pottery Makers
 etc.
and she's interviewing them about their process,
what inspires them,
how they got where they are.
All very interesting stuff.
I listened to one today and it made me want to drive to Asheville to take a class in a subject I know nothing about.

Anyway, it's a great listen once a week on Wednesdays.
Click HERE to go to the website.

If you're from that area, interested in different types of art or want to learn about artists and their processes, this is definitely for you.

Not only does Meredith interview the artists,
she also can link you up with them,
show you some of their work,
where they will be exhibiting
and all kinds of other great info.

If you're into art, I think you're gonna like it.

Not only will you be in for everything I give away during my blogaversary in September, but I give away a painting every month.  

Yesterday I was able to hand deliver my August painting giveaway to a lady who has become very supportive of my art journey.
I was thrilled when I pulled the name Sarah Whicker out of my virtual hat and she responded immediately.

 
 I'm giving away all kinds of goodies,
You need to get your name in the hat.

About Me

My photo
Ghent, Kentucky, United States
I'm a nature artist and I love to paint old barns, rivers and lakes, trees and fence rows. I work almost daily trying to improve my art and all that entails. I try to learn all I can from others and from the earth itself by being aware of all God has created and its beauty. You can purchase paintings by contacting me at slgraves6@gmail.com. You can also purchase through my gallery website at www.riverrungallery.com . Thank you so much for stopping by.
