Peek-A-Burro II, and Workshop!
I don't normally re-use original, witty titles like this one (usually just the boring titles like "Road Sketch" or "Park Trail" or "Cloud") but I had to make an exception here because I honestly couldn't come up with a another title for this image that fit half so well, and this is the third painting I've done from the reference photo. I do have another possible title, but I'm very likely going to paint from this same reference yet again, and wanted to reserve the title for that one.
I just mailed off this Peek-a-Burro, my donation for the ACT (Artists Changing Tomorrow) International Invitational Exhibit and Silent Auction, sponsored by Arts for Rural Texas. Since 2010, ACT has raised over $100,000 that has contributed to arts and cultural events for over 6000 children and adults. Research reflects that the arts contribute substantially to tourism and economic development in communities.
Visit www.act4art.com to find out more, and check back in a couple days to see "Peek-A-Burro II" among the posted artwork available in ACT2014!
On another note, there are still a few spaces left in my 3-day "Pastel in Miniature" workshop coming up soon, Nov. 21-23., in Breckenridge, TX. A small town between Fort Worth and Abilene, it hosts a gorgeous Arts Center with a to-die-for workshop room! Don't miss out on this one!
