Apples and More Apples, Acrylic Still Life for the OPOMAC Gallery Show in Graham TX

Apples 14071

More Apples 14072
Available on Daily Paintworks

The above two paintings were painted in the Patti Mollica workshop in November at the Carmel Visual Arts Center in Carmel, CA. I had really thought I had made reservations at Clint Eastwood's Mission Ranch Inn but sadly I got my motels mixed up and after I realized it, it was for the best because his was a little more $$ than I had in my budget.. maybe next trip. Here was my lovely motel The Carmel Mission Inn and the name was very similar.  I had hopes of finding him loading up the Coke machine or sitting at the bar. (Rich from Visual Arts said Patti will return in October for another workshop. hmmm?) I didn't have enough time this trip to explore around Carmel like I wanted as I had scheduled another workshop with Leslie Saeta the following day. 
These paintings will be at the OPOMAC Old Post Office Museum and Art Center in Graham, TX for the next 6 weeks along with my friends from Canvas by Canvas. We'd like you to pay our exhibit a visit if you are in the area. 

The artists of Canvas by Canvas will be exhibiting their personal paintings at the Graham Old Post Office Museum and Art Center from January 17, 2015, through February 28th, with artwork themed around Food, Glorious Food!  All paintings will reflect the theme with scenes of food and drink items. The exhibit will also include 2 or 3 of the Canvas by Canvas group's collaborative paintings relating to the theme. The month-long event will kick off with a reception from 6 to 8 PM on the evening of Saturday, January 17th, and everyone is invited.

Here are two more Journal Pages for my Daily Journal, pages 3, 4 and 5.

 I'm trying to keep count of my calories with app, My Fitness Pal and reading the Bible with app YouVersion. I like them both but most of January has been taken with getting ready for the gallery show. The cross hatch is personal info about a friend.
