18th Hole Grassy HIll CC, oil on canvas 16 x 20, commissioned for silent auction UCPA Tournament 2012
Here's the two paintings that were picked to be in the silent auction and raffle for this year's 22nd Annual Golf Tournament to benefit UCPA of Southern Connecticut at Grassy Hill Country Club, Orange, CT. I put the final touches on this painting this morning. The frames arrived yesterday... just in time.
Now all I need to do is wait for the paint to dry, frame and package them for Monday's event. And, as a special surprise I was invited to attend the banquet dinner Monday evening! I feel honored to join in on this event... yet a little nervous... those stupid thoughts always race through my head... 'what if no one bids on it?"... I know this is very common among artists when it comes time for a gallery opening or reception. No matter how long an artist has been working at their profession, when it comes down to the wire whether it's unveiling a commissioned piece or presenting a body of work at a gallery, I don't think that twinge of doubt every really disappears. I wonder why? If you have any insights or comments please feel free to share them. Or if you know of a truly confident artist that never experiences "doubt"... let me know... I would love to have a conversation with... him or her....
p.s. I'll let you know how the silent auction and banquet go... until then.... maybe I'll paint something with a little less green :)
