an iron gate in Cornwall

with 2 comments

Yesterday, I delivered another painting, entitled ‘iron gate in Cornwall’, to Isaac’s Way restaurant, for their upcoming auction.  Isaac’s way will be displaying the work of more than 50 artists from May 26, 2014 throughout the summer in their 21st art auction for charity.

I had intended to display the watercolour ‘gate on Old Church Road’ for the auction (8″ x 10″, unframed).  However, Isaac’s Way had space for a larger painting, so I have done another version of the gate in acrylic (24″ x 20″, unframed).  I had not worked in acrylic for more than a year, so it was interesting to use the different medium for this new painting.

Here is the watercolour, ‘gate on Old Church Road’ …

Isaac’s Way restaurant in Fredericton has announced that the 20th Art Auction for Kids-in-Need (sponsoring theatre classes for underprivileged children) has already raised over $6000 from the sale of over 50 pieces of art.  The goal for this auction is $8000.

The art may be seen at  http://isaacsway.ca/art/  If you are in the Fredericton area, come to the restaurant in person and make a bid.  The auction ends Sunday May 25th at closing time.  If you bid on my watercolour ‘gate at Ponsonooth’, remember, I am donating 80% of the proceeds towards Kids-in-Need!

yet another Cornwall gate

with 7 comments

As you may have seen on my ‘accomplishments’ page, I have sold the painting ‘rainbow gate in Falmouth’. It was on display as part of an art auction at Isaac’s Way Restaurant in Fredericton.

The art at auction at Isaac’s Way helps local children’s charities, in this case providing opportunities for summer theatre. Once I have sold a painting, I can replace the painting with another and now ‘gate in Ponsanooth’ is up for auction!  You can see the painting at  https://nichepoetryandprose.wordpress.com/2014/01/24/another-cornwall-gate/ .

~

I am continuing to paint in my Cornwall gates series.  This past weekend, I painted another gate from Ponsanooth entitled ‘enter’.  Gates are meaningful to me, as metaphors for change and as representative of possibility.  And the various building materials, stone, cement, wood and metal, are very enjoyable to paint …
