"ACORNS" ORIGINAL MIXED MEDIA PAINTING OF ACORNS © SAUNDRA LANE GALLOWAY

Last night at Market Dayz wasn't profitable in a monetary sense, but a lot of FUN! Up here on the mountain it is like pulling teeth to get people interested in just about anything...it takes awhile to spread the word...but to go an support a group of businesses that are TRYING to bring out the people was a pleasure!  I've long been a proponent of supporting the arts in my own community, so I went.  I sat next to a group of circle drummers and guitarists that were playing their hearts out...I even jumped in their jam session with my voice (since that was the only instrument I had" and even sang a couple songs with them.  THAT was a blast!  

During all of this frivolity I was also able to complete my first in a group of 3 5"x5" mini that will be entered in a mini show that will be held at the famous Foothills Art Center in Golden in September.  ACORNS is number one.  I don't know what it is about these little nuts that brings me such joy to paint...but they do, so I did!  As you saw yesterday the background was begun with acrylic.  I then moved to adding paper and finished with a little molding paste (as Golden products calls their MODELING paste) a minor bit of stamping and then painted the nuts and two leaves with oil. This was completed on a gallery wrap canvas that I pained around...

Next in line will either be a sunflower or a pine cone...I'll just have to see what I'm in the mood for! :)

HAPPY CREATING!

Love the acorns. So nice and fresh and colorful. Wondered where this was going when I saw the starter piece. Great ending.

Absolutely gorgeous, Saundra. I think this is my new favorite SLG piece. Oaks have always been my favorite tree and to see the leaves and fruit in such a fabulous palette? Ooh la la! I'd buy this in a heartbeat!
