Goal Accomplished! The Last 6 Domino Train Stations Done!

I did it!  I finished painting the last of the Domino Train Stations.  I did 26 of them in 10 days.  This gives me a nice selection for the Sun City Art Festival on Oct. 25, 2014.  Actually I will have 25 to show because I already sold one to a neighbor who saw my last blog post and wanted one.  Here are the last 6.

I am ready to start some new projects.  In fact I have two 8X10 canvas paintings started.  I sell many 8X10 desert scenes at the art festival and since I only have a couple left I will have to work on painting more.

Another 7 Domino Train Stations

I spent the past week painting Mexican Domino Train Stations.  I was able to get 20  of them done in a week.  I have 6 more base coated that I hope to have the design painted on in the next few days.  That leaves me 5 that are unpainted.  I think I will save them for special orders.  I have to place an order with my son Mark to cut out more of them for me. They are one of my most popular items. I sell many of them during the holiday season. People buy one for themselves then buy more to give as gifts.  Here are the ones I just completed.

7 More Domino Train Stations

I have seven more train stations done.  I have 6 more ready to paint and 12 that are still in the raw state that need base coated.  I think I will do 6 of them and save 6 for special orders.  I had a question on price.  They are $30 each which includes shipping.  If you are interested email me at rogpamd@msn.com.  Here are the newest Mexican Train Stations.

6 New Train Stations

Had a great reunion with cousins who came from PA, GA, & NY for a visit with me here in Tucson. It had been 20 years since some of us had seen each other. What a fun time we had! Here is a photo of me and the cousins.

  Now that they are gone it is time for me to get back to work.  I decided to work on my Mexican Domino Train Stations.  I have 6 completed.  My goal is to have them all done in a week.  Here are the ones that I have finished so far.

"Profiles in Red"

A month or so ago I did a square painting based on a zentangle type drawing I had done in the past.  It is now showing at Accounting Allies.  This type of painting is something different than what I usually do.  At the opening reception I had many people who are familiar with my work tell me how surprised they were with this painting as they  had never seen me do something like this before.  Most of my work is very "folk artsy".

 I recently got a call to artists for an exhibition that is featuring people and places.  I decided to try another version of this type of painting to fit the people category.  I haven't submitted my entry yet but will do so soon along with two other paintings that fit the places category.

Here is the painting. I titled "Profiles in Red" it is 16X16 and is in a gold frame.  I decided to do this version in a colorful palette.  The faces are easier to pick out than in the original version which is done in more subdued colors.
Here is a photo of the first one I did that is titled "Masquerade"  It is 24X24 and is on an art board with 2" sides. As you can see the faces are not so obvious.  You must study it for awhile before you see them.

"Rose Trio"

I did this painting for my son Brian and his wife Sarah.  They recently moved to Falls Church, VA.  They decided on apartment living instead of buying a house.  They will probably be there three years before another transfer.  Their apartment has an electrical panel in the den/guestroom.  They asked me to do a painting  in a size that will cover the panel.  They wanted a chocolate brown background with creamy colored roses. This is what I came up with.  It is painted on a 20X24 art panel.
I did another large painting for them in the past that also was on an art panel.  I don't remember the exact size but know it was taller and narrower than the one above.  They still have it and are using it in their music room in the new apartment.  It is titled "Calla Lilies in black Vase".
My next project are two Mexican Domino Train  Stations with hummingbirds that go to friends in SC.  Then I have to get busy working towards the Sun City Art festival which is at the end of October.  Too much work and not enough time!  Not complaining though because I enjoy painting and am happy that people buy what I paint.

"Psychedelic Desert"

I finished this 16X20 painting yesterday.  When I do a desert scene in an 8X10 or smaller size they are all titled "Classic Desert Scene".  When I do one in a larger size I give them each a different title.  I've used so many names like "Desert Oasis",  "Golden Desert", Desert Beauty, "Desert in Bloom".....you get the idea.  I've lost track of how many of these I have done and the titles I have used.  I'm always trying to think of a new name for a desert scene.  I came up with the "Psychedelic Desert" title after attending our local playhouse on Sunday where they did a tribute to the 1960's.  Everyone was in 60's attire and the set was straight out of the old "Laugh In" TV show.  Lots of bright psychedelic prints and colors.  When I finished this painting I had a "flashback" to all those bright and brilliant colors....thus "Psychedelic Desert".

 My next painting I am doing at the request of my son and his wife.  They were recently transferred to the DC area and have moved into an apartment.  Their den/spare room has an electrical panel on the wall that they want to cover with one of my paintings.  My husband is in the garage building an art box in the size needed while I am writing this and it should be done by the time I finish this post.  I will start work on it as soon as he has it ready.  As always, I'll post a photo when it is completed.
