Saturday is For Art: The Golden Ticket Art Show of 2011
Since I have been sidelined with my torn tendon, I decide to do the Bush 43 Stamp after viewing the photographs in the VANITY FAIR issue of August 2011, and reading the article titled The Kingdom and The Towers. I bought a frame for Bush 43 from Suder's Art Store that was a standard 16" by 20" this past week. I was able to buy a nice wood frame that I liked and worked for the colors in this painting. But, I was still reluctant to give up on the idea of entering The Altarpiece even though with the 2 doors it is too big in square feet by the rules of the show. If I took the 2 doors off, the case of The Altarpiece would be just under the 9 square feet limit. I am thinking about going ahead and rigging the case to be hung on the wall without the doors, and entering it with the Bush 43 Stamp. They might both be rejected, but that is the chance you take when you enter a juried art show. Although I have had my artwork rejected several times, I nevertheless, don't like it when my work is rejected. I am now working on a new painting. It is going to be a postage stamp and self portrait. But, that is another story for another time.
