|A Pair of Koi 2015 j. c. phillipps|
I did a nice big one that I am very happy with. (Above.) Although I must confess that I've painted so many koi fish that I'm running out of decent names for them. Often I have to include the year. :)
The show, which features art from artists all over New England and New York, was fabulous. Beautiful works that I barely got to see because it was so dang crowded.
"Too crowded" is a good problem for an art opening. But it did mean I couldn't linger on any one piece for too long. But that was a bonus for the men that I dragged along with me. I, smartly, packed a frisbee so they could ditch if I found myself chatting with someone. However, it was too crowded even for that.
Some beautiful art was seen, a cupcake was eaten, a frisbee was thrown, and then we left.
The piece above, The Game by Elisabeth McBrien, won Best in Show. I agree. It's a stunning piece that my photograph doesn't really capture.
If you're in the West Hartford, CT area, come check out the show!
Thanks so much for stopping in!
Have a great day!
