After that Mom and I went apartment hunting, but you all know how that went (see the post below). Update on that: I'm not fully approved yet, but all signs are pointing to yes! That evening, Mom, Taylor, and I drove over to Clayton for the annual art fair. The weather was perfect for a little art viewing, and we got some beers to sip while walking around.
The selection of art was okay. These prints by Gillian Kemper were fantastic. She did them using the mono print technique, where you paint onto a sheet of plexiglass then roll it under a large press. This is the same technique I used in my printmaking class in college! It was very neat to see some professional examples, and of such interesting workmanship. I love the little brushstrokes that give the pieces great movement and texture, and the vibrant colors add so much.
The next artist's work I enjoyed was Jeff Condon. His medium of choice is the oil pastel, so they have more a drawn-quality, rather than the type of immediacy and thickness you get with paint. Again, the color makes these rather simple landscapes much more interesting.
