Herbie again

Haven't blogged any art for a while. I'd almost forgotten about this pair of paintings. The gallery they were in has moved. The second sold but I had to pick up the first last week. Had some good news yesterday. Two still-lifes, which were a departure in style and subject for me, were accepted for the Academy Galleries Winter Exhibition which opens Friday. Fingers crossed they might sell.

What wonderful portraits these are. Very emotional pieces. You are very talented Lindsay. If ever anyone had a right to claim the "artists benefit" it is you.

Thank you Brian. I do put my hand in a certain tax-payer's pocket a fair bit. But he doesn't seem to mind ... and I do iron his shirts:-)

I'd love to see the originals. Would you mind posting when you are next exhibiting in Wgtn.

Gloria, I'm not planning another solo exhibition for a while but I'll post when I do. I'm glad you like them. These are painted from photos I took. But people often say, if they see my photos, I've added something with the painting. That must be my feeling about the person.

Very nice. They have a very 'Goldie' feel about them (at least that was my first impression).
