Rainy evening in Williamsport

I enjoyed meeting many people on First Friday. I demonstated and talked and gathered a couple new ideas. I did gain an interesting commission - I'm to do a painting for a man who worked for Trimtex for many years. I'm going to try three paintings using only Trimtex products to make the textures. Below is part of my display in the store - there are a few of the wares in the foreground.
Trimtex makes every kind of trim, yarn, patches, bling that exist. Here is an early machine that is loaded with lots of thread to make another piece of trim.
In the photo below, Kristina is waiting on a customer. Kristina was, about four years ago, one of the student teachers that I supervised for MU. She is that one who hooked me up with the store for First Friday.
There is free trolley service every First Friday so that everyone can get to all the displays and functions.

Williamsport Sun-Gazette Thursday supplement.

The paper put my painting on the cover of "showcase." I'll be demonstrating from 6 to 9 pm tomorrow night at the Trimtex store. Should be fun as there will be lots of other artists and exhibits in various stores on Fourth Street.

New Video

A youtube video showing how I make transparencies and adhere them to my textured paintings has been posted. Click here.
