Hello again painting fans.

This week I will be continuing with the painting of the gothic Cape May house.  The photo that I will be using is seen directly below.  I will be using my usual acrylics on an 8x10 canvas.

When last seen, the painting appeared as it does directly below.

The last week has been a great challenge, with both good and very bad.  I did not find much time to paint as my mother passed away.  Dealing with this has been difficult for both expected and unexpected reasons.  I've never experienced the grief of losing a parent.  Suffice it to say that my emotions have run the gamut.  Added to this are the rifts now opening in my family.  Things will take time to sort out.

However, I did find a few minutes to throw some paint on the canvas.  I've added some blue paint to the outline of the van.  I've also added green to the tree and lawn.  Not terribly impressive progress but I'm surprised that this much was done.  I'll have more next week.

And now to the good.  The last painting, the Packard grille, was accepted for the current juried show at the Kent Art Association.  Frankly, I was surprised.   The tastes of the judging artists tend toward the traditional.  In any event, if you are in the Kent, Connecticut area, please stop by.

The current state of the painting is seen directly below.

I'll have more progress to show you next week.  See you then.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
