Another Altar and small works

Here's the next in my series of Altars: Raven Temple, 30 x 18, $265

Tomorrow I am demonstrating acrylic landscape at the Sautee Community Center Gallery from 10 am to 1:30 Raven Temple is in the current show along with a few other paintings and mixed media pieces including my last post: A Singular Path. I look forward to painting all day - but the forecast is for thunderstorms, so I'm not expecting many folks. The good news is that I'll be painting indoors!

As part of my small series (5 x 7) and the Art for Shelters Project - here is Jojo, a resident of the Habersham Animal Shelter. He's a beautiful tabby who has spent four months waiting for adoption. Heartbreaker...

And What Cat's Think... also 5 x 7 $18.00 (Sold)


Aunt Edna, 5 x 7 $18.00
And a tiny portrait of a friend: Max, 5 x 7 $18.00

And here are the two altar pieces on display at the Sautee Center Gallery's latest show.

I found out I've been called back for the Census!! Yay!! Paid work!! Income!! Mileage too - and I hope to once again post a series based upon my travels...

Patrice I do love your altars with tributes to what you love in the natural world. Of course the raven made me think of the poem by Edgar Alan Poe and I just had to look it up. Here in Ontario we have in our back yard the smaller crow, the raven’s cousin, but my, they too are a big bird. Btw with your fondness for cats are you familiar with the poem by Stevie Smith (British) – The Singing Cat – if not, check it out. It’s a great poem – you’d get a kick out of it.
Take care,
Marcia

Hi Patrice, I just found your blog through ARTIT, and had to contact you because it seems we have much in common. First, you have on your sidebar my favorite lines from my favorite song, A Case of You, by Joni Mitchell. Then, I love all things raven and crow, and many of my works contain them. I love your altars, and your landscapes look like Kentucky; where are you from? Nice to meet you, I'm Sharmon.

The second altar looks on the web as if it would be a real thing, an entry to the woods :) Nice !
