part and parcel

I tried to remember things I stressed to my workshop attendees as I painted this today.  At the top of the list was "make every stroke count".  Don't slap paint on your canvas without a purpose.

I am painting at a fund raiser for the University of Alabama at Birmingham's  Comprehensive Cancer Center this Saturday night. It is one of the nation's leading  cancer research and treatment centers. The fund raiser is called "Art Blink" because the artists have and hour and a half to complete a painting.  Attendees bid on the paintings to raise money for the cancer center's fund for excellence. (research, family assistance, etc) It is a black tie affair so the only downside is that I have to dress up.  Even so....I am honored and excited to be a part of this affair.  I am going to paint a large rooster that will be auctioned. This one is a warm up and is a 6 x 12 x 2".sold
