Oil and Water
Last week I was out in Tsawwassen to "sit" the exhibition - which is a requirement for those juried into the show. (My painting in the show-which is Oil & Water - is "At the Beach") It is an interesting show with a number of good paintings - but only one has sold. I'm still trying to figure out what it is that promotes sales as there were some very reasonable prices there. Next door, at the arena, there was an antiques show. As I went back to my car, I saw some people who had bought a truly hideous - although presumably old- painting. Boring pathway, boring colours, gilt frame and large size. They could have had a pick of something worth hanging - so who knows why that was the purchase?
