Juneteenth 2020 In Otown

This is a short post to catch up a bit and let you know what I’ve been working on, and here it is!

I have been asked to showcase a recent painting I have done at a Juneteenth celebration event in my town. I awoke with the idea for this painting, and felt almost compelled to do it. To have someone feel that it should be included in such an important event, is exciting and flattering. I am very happy with how it came out. There are times when I paint that I get lost in the process, and it almost feels as if I am being guided, and this is how working on this piece felt. It’s an incredible experience.

Below I have included some of the steps to the completion of this piece.

It is my objective to show my process whenever I can, but sometimes getting caught up in actually creating a piece, I don’t always get a chance to take photos. I did manage to get these few taken. I’ll try to get a few more for the next one!

Care for one another, and stay safe. I hope you join me next time!

  1. Thank you. I believe in serendipity (if that’s something you can believe in). Searching for something interesting to read, I came across a book written by Brigette Benkemoun, a French writer, entitled; “Finding Dora Maar.” I ordered the English translation, and it is fantastic. Then as I’m reading it I see you’ve written a post about her. Hummm. I highly recommend it.

  2. Serendipity indeed. I bought the book in French last summer. An incredible story. And a great “detective work” form Benkemoun. Dora Maar knew everybody that “counted” in the artistic and intellectual world of Paris before (and after) the war. Have you read it already? If you have, you will have most of the faces on the names in Dora’s agenda… πŸ‘πŸ»
