"Big Apple" Number 100!

48"x48" acrylic on canvas
I can't believe it.... it's finished and here it is, the "Big Apple".... I have learned a lot Bobbi, I will tell you about it later. Like after our big Stutz Artists Open House this weekend!
I think my painting itself has reached another point at this time in my life. It's exciting! Wow!
I will also post the finishing and celebration movies later. So much to do, could someone else do all of this so I can paint the rest of the pears that I started? Wait, did I start that or did I just get carried away?

For a feeling about the size! I'm not 7 feet tall!

The open house is so exciting, the whole building is a buzz this week and in the wee hours of the night too! I think half the excitement for the show is getting ready for it. Like Spring cleaning or something. The building, the "factory" as Turner calls it, is beautiful. All painted and decorated... we are ready for our guests! I'll let you know next week how many attend! In the mean time here is a professional video clip about the show... oh yea, I'm in it and so is "Big Apple"!

Janett, awesome, so awesome that you've done it. 100 wonderful apples, with so much creativity. Mixed media, super biggies and including the numbers in the paintings, it's all so fabulous. I can't wait to see what you do next!
