An invitation to see painting “Three Minute Egg #12” as one of 80 water-media paintings in the WSO Spring 2019 Experimental Exhibition!
About the Exhibition.
Greetings! I am happy to say that my painting “Three Minute Egg #12” is showing in the Watercolor Society of Oregon’s Spring 2019 Experimental Exhibition. My painting is one of 80 stunning water-media works accepted by Juror Jean Pederson.
What makes this show particularly special is that the rules accept works from a variety of watermedia and supports. That is to say, artists can include acrylic paint or use clayboard panels, for example. There might be a bit of pastel or colored pencil worked in too, as long as the painting is primarily watercolor.
Location and Hours.
The WSO Exhibition will held at the Oregon Society of Artists (OSA), 2185 SW Park Ave, Portland OR from April 8th to 30th. Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday, 1 – 4 pm.
The opening reception is Saturday, April 6th from 4 to 5 pm.
About the Painting.
Some of my favorite things: egg cups, espresso cups, a timer and a spoon. I am reminded of special family breakfasts we had when I was young. It just seemed exotic to have an egg served in an egg cup. I loved dunking my toast in the egg yolk. The design of the painting perhaps emphasizes the idea of remembering the past. The items are simplified and expressive rather than realistic. It is about experimenting with shape and color to create something joyful.
The colors of the painting refer to an early morning, perhaps. In other words, dawn; the time of day when the sun is just starting to peak into the breakfast room. The darks of night have yet to disappear for the day.
This is one of 13 paintings created to date in my “Three Minute Egg” series of paintings.
If you would like, I wrote an article about creating the design for this painting and published almost a year ago. You might enjoy the extra insight about the painting.
If you are in the area, I invite you to stop by and enjoy the show!
