Thursday I dropped off my new painting, Swallow Sonata, at the Canyon Gallery in the Boulder Public Library.
I’ve had a 26” round table top sitting around the studio for years and I finally tackled it for my 2016 submission. At first, I was a little timid about painting a “rondo” as they called those round paintings in the Renaissance. I felt the round composition might need some circling subjects and, eventually, these swallows swirling toward Long’s Peak helped pull it all together.
The preview show will run from Sept. 9 through October 9. The reception will be Friday, Sept 30 from 6 to 8 pm.
