The summer has been great especially after such a shaky start with my foot. My foot is much better, I walk about a mile and a half each morning. Still pain but less of a limp. Duane and I have thoroughly enjoyed Montana. We have seen so much. I have painted with friends at so many great locations. As soon as I get back I will be putting the new paintings on my blog and website. They all need a little touching up to be ready for prime time.
While in Montana, I have had a wonderful opportunity to do a commission for the Stayton Project which is a new five star retirement center in Ft. Worth. The Stayton is in the Cultural District on Museuem Way. This is near 7th street. I was contacted by a decorator in Maryland. The goal was a painting distinctly Ft. Worth. Doug Clark took pictures for me at the Botanic Gardens, the decorator chose the scene and I painted a 30x40 oil painting. I just got word that it was installed and will be in the building for their grand opening in November. Here is a picture of the painting:
Many artists were selected to do paintings. Can't wait to visit the site and see the art.
