“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
~ Theodore Roosevelt ~
More marble madness! Another a 12×36 oil on canvas that will be revealed in October at the Welcome Back Show taking place at the Stephen Lowe Art Gallery (Calgary) from October 10th – 26th. This is still a work in progress, a couple of more layers yet!
This is a section of the painting that is on the easel today. I am in the final stages, perhaps one more refining layer after this one. The full painting will be revealed in October when it arrives in Calgary for the Autumn Welcome Back Show at the Stephen Lowe Art Gallery. The full size of this painting is 12×36 inches.
Nearly There! The new website is taking shape. The html bits are frustrating, but making it look good is always satisfying. There are a lot more images of paintings to be added to the site. It will take time to get that done…must paint! Thanks for looking and keep checking back! And just because it is hard for me to add a post without something visual, here is a painting from years past. One of my very first award winning paintings. I need to do more like this!
