The Fall Line Painters and Lamar Arts members have the opportunity to paint together this Thursday, Jan. 20th, at the old train depot gallery in downtown Barnesville, GA. You do not need to be a member of either group to bring your brushes and join in the fellowship. In fact, we have a knitter in our group, as well as porcelain painters. Bring what ever you are presently working on, set up a still life or plein air paint outside or "inside-out" through the large windows. We start around 10:00 in the morning and go well into the afternoon, breaking for lunch.
Tomorrow evening I will be giving a one-hour talk on "Composition" at the Fine Art Society of Middle Georgia in Centerville. I'll be going over a list of '21 Pointers for Better Composition' and hopefully have time to critique a few of the members' paintings. The meeting is held at Centerville City Hall on Church St and the public is invited, starting at 7:00PM and will last until about 9:00. Further information about FASMG can be gathered through Dona at firstname.lastname@example.org

Lamar Arts has a fabulous gallery in the historic Old Train Depot in downtown Barnesville, Ga. This is where the first 2011 reception that I'll be involved in will take place this Friday, Jan. 7th, 6-8PM. I was pleasantly surprised that they used one of my paintings on the flier. Lamar Arts is opening a large room for members' works called the Trackside Gallery, where several of my plein air group, the Fall Line Gang, will be showing work along with other association members. Many of the Gang have decided to become members and we will be keeping the gallery open for on-site painting each Thursday starting January 13th. We invite all to come see the shows, browse the gift shop and paint with us. You do not have to be a member to pull out the brushes and join in the fun! However, I would suggest that you email me (sidebar) one day prior to coming on a Thursday to confirm, since this is an all-volunteer kept day.

This commissioned piece was the last painting of 2010.... #68 for the year. That's just the number of finished pieces. It doesn't include the ones that are still facing the wall! I also did 43 wire sculptures, two drafting jobs and a bunch of craftsy things for fun. I have high hopes for 2011... don't we all?! I'd like to tackle more sculpture and improve my figurative work and attempts at plein air painting. My biggest challenge there is knowing what to leave out!
