We have a miniature show or two coming up and since I was on a musical portrait bent already I decided to attempt a watercolour of a clarinet. Originally the instrument itself was supposed to be featured, but once I looked at all those keys I thought it might be a good cheat to add the person playing the clarinet. It is someone famous, although it isn’t meant to be a recognizable person. Can anyone guess who it is?
Dawson Creek Art Gallery’s Mystery Lottery fundraiser is on again tonight! Artists donate paintings, photographs, drawings, prints or other work to be concealed under brown wrapping. Writers offer poetic hints as to what might lie beneath the paper… The curious, those who are willing to be lucky, purchase a ticket for a draw. Someone’s name comes up. What will she choose? Can she guess what is under the paper? Is it the piece she would like to have? All is revealed!
This is quite the exciting evening. Imagine the grain elevator turned gallery with spectators lining the spiraling ramp and looking down on the ticket holders tearing paper from their prize to see what it might be. Fine food and drink, live music, and our show, Allure, stretching above the Lottery pieces, all the way to the top of the elevator. Even those who haven’t got a ticket enjoy a wonderful evening of suspense, laughter and warmth.
Judy’s donation: Festive Spray. Watercolour on paper, and framed.
Carolyn’s donation: Autumn Colour. Watercolour on canvas (that’s a different way to watercolour! The canvas must be coated with watercolour medium to hold the paint).
Here’s how the kids’ Northern Lights paintings turned out. Each one is just beautiful! The watercolours are glued onto the wooden boxes the kids painted with acrylics last week. They will make a lovely gift!
These kids are aged between six and ten. Can you pick out the two teacher paintings among the kids’?
Our Lodge ladies have a beautiful card to give to someone after yesterday’s watercolour session we used sprinkle paint (Brusho) to make northern lights there are plenty of stars and big spruce trees. One lady was ready to move in!
