In Which I Do Performance Art

"In The Gallery"
8 x 10 inches, oil on canvas

With our crazy changeable Spring weather, it can be sunny one minute and pouring the next. So, when the plein-air itch hit this week, I opted for an indoor version - at my new gallery! I love painting interiors. I really don't do them often enough - mostly because I figure, meh, it's just my house. Well, my art now has a gorgeous house - which I hope to paint again very soon.

 Here's me. I never know what to do with my left hand when someone photographs me while painting! Normally, it would be holding a filthy, paint-soaked rag, but I like to hide the evidence when the camera approaches. Then what? Put my fist on my hip like the supermodel I am? I do always feel sexy in an apron. (True story!)

Hello Sarah, you've really captured the light and airy atmosphere of the interior. All your paintings are just amazing. I love your beautiful loose and confident style.

I love the painting, it feels so open and airy.
In your photo, I think a paint rag in your other hand would look good, natural, and could add a little dolop of color to the picture. It would probably relax you too!

Ditto to the comment regarding the rag- authentic is always best. Looking forward to stepping into the gallery soon. I admire your work, and love how you've engaged social media as an artist!

What is it about aprons?, so do I! Pair it with my hiking shoes and I`m an animal!
You`re doing nice work at the gallery Sarah!
