After 6 weeks of painting the 25 painting series “Looking Through Windows” is done.

If you live in the Sacramento area, please come and see the exhibit! It will be exhibited at the 20th Street Art Gallery. The exhibit will be on display November 11 – December 24, 2009. To see a preview of the exhibit, check out the gallery’s blog here.

I photographed all the paintings and turned them in yesterday.  While I was at the gallery, I received some postcards and my sample piece that I turned with my application for the exhibit.  That reminded me that I haven’t shared this yet —  here is my sample piece,  “Rooftops”,  oil on canvas paper:

To get ready for the exhibit, I put the images together in the order I would like them to hang on the wall.  I decided to order them based on color instead of when I completed them.  I think it looks nicer this way.  The five on the bottom will not hang in the exhibit initially, they are extras and will be hung as pieces sell from the exhibit. And thus they are my least favorites.  Here they are all together (click image to see larger):

Windows Series

It’s amazing what a person is capable of under stress.  If you remember my last update was titled “yikes!”.  At the end of week four I had less than half the paintings completed and in the last week and a half, I finished the rest.  Here are some larger, individual photos of my favorites that I haven’t already shared in previous posts:
