New Painting, "Forest for The Trees"
Still working on the series, "Tellling Stories", paintings of the elderly for my October exhibition. This week, however, I took a break to work on an entry for an upcoming juried exhibition at Fallingwater, the Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece at Bear Run, Pa.
The Associated Artists of Pittsburgh were invited to visit Fallingwater throughout 2009 and 2010 to paint, photograph and sketch the grounds and buildings. The artwork selected will be shown at two unique art exhibits at Fallingwater.
While photographing the grounds on a dreary, overcast day, the sun suddenly came out and streamed through the trees. I was struck by this beautiful scene behind the two artists who were busy focusing on other areas.
