FINAL BOZZETTOS #8 & #9



Sitting at the Gallery Concord yesterday, I was able to finish the bozzetto sheet. Here are the last two pieces. This is an image that I want to work with much more with texture, composition, lighting, and other ideas. Texture and mixed media will require larger formats than 5 x 7 but I am going to work with lighting next so a bozzetto sheet will work nicely. So this is my challenge for the coming month.....to develop as many ideas as I can with this image.

If you haven't had a chance to check out the American Watercolor Society website in the last day, they have finally posted the awards. There are some very exciting paintings there. I am looking forward to being able to see them and the entire show in person. Tomorrow is the official opening of the show with a big reception...food, drink, music. If you can get to New York City, it should be an exciting event.

I finally have my workshop schedule updated. You can find it on my website at www.myrnawacknov.com. The one in Ocean Shores, Washington is being held at a resort and will be like a mini vacation! If you have time in October, consider joining me there.

Just when I thought you couldn't get more powerful with this image... those are quite incredible!

That's one of the things that I admire about you: even after a significant accomplishment (see under AWS award) you don't just rest on the laurels, but keep ruining forward. Maybe that's the secret to constant growth!

Uhm, I meant "keep running forward"...

I need to get more sleep.

Congratulations, Myrna, on your award! I've been having fun watching you develop this particular series of bozzettos; they're inspiring and thought provoking.

I'm one of the artists in Ocean Shores. I still can not see the workshop announcement on your workshop page(?) It's exciting that you'll be here for a workshop.

Myrna, these last two bozzettos are superb! You certainly are an ad for creativity through working in a series!

Enjoy the superb art show. We can't wait to hear about this exciting experience from the perspective of a prestigious award-winning artist.
