Lakeland Art Guild

When I moved to Florida I joined the Lakeland (FL) Art Guild. It is a group of 60+ Artists who enjoy getting together every month to listen to an artist or speaker talk about their art journey, the art business or to demonstrate their art style and techniques. We also get together once a month to paint out doors (called Plein Air Painting). I showed two of my paintings from our January Plein Air Painting event in last month's Newsletter. The Guild also sponsors art shows several times a year where a judge is brought in and members are asked to bring paintings to be judged for entry into the show. This month I entered two paintings for the show. Both of my paintings were selected for entry in the next show. In addition I was awarded "Honorable Mention" for one of my two paintings. The show will be displayed in the Lakeland Center Lobby near the Box Office from March 31 - June 13. 
Here are my two paintings. The first one "Abstract Blues" is the painting that won the award.
The second one is "Field of Poppies"

Speaking of Abstract Painting
In case you missed it, here is a video of another abstract painting I completed in November of last year where I describe the process I use for creating an abstract work. This painting was completed from a photograph of Peggy's Cove in Nova Scotia where I zoomed way in on the photo to find interesting shapes, colors and values. I used those shapes and values to derive the abstract from.

Watson Cancer Clinic

Every month I volunteer for 2-3 hours to paint in the waiting room at the Watson Clinic here in Lakeland. I paint for people who are waiting to see their oncologist or are taking chemotherapy treatments or are waiting on a family member.
Here is one of the two watercolor paintings I completed this month. "Alberta Falls"
