SOLD

Since I seem to be on a theme of rocks and water, this is a recent work painted for entry in a juried exhibit. The jury's still out... or maybe they've decided and they just forgot to phone...maybe I should call and remind them.

Beautiful work. I am also a lifelong resident of the NW and find inspiration in every direction. We live in a magical place.

You do watercolour so well Don; I have no doubt it will get into the show - this is superb.

My little love seat pillows arrived yesterday. I am so thrilled to have another of your works in my collection. As with the other two, this one has a cosy warmth that is such a pleasure to view.

Don Gray said...

Thanks, Martha. Yes, I've known Alan Magee's work for a long time. I saw a show of his at the Forum Gallery in LA a couple years ago--mostly still-life's with paintbrushes and stones. It was terrific.

Don Gray said...

Hi Suzanne, thanks for coming by and welcome back to blogland. Hope you had a great hiatus. I'll be checking out your new posts.

Don Gray said...

Thanks a lot, Jason!

Don Gray said...

Hi Silvina, I sure appreciate your thoughts--thanks.

Don Gray said...

Triecia, glad to hear the painting arrived safely. Thanks so much, I'm very honored.

Really, Don, it is hard for me to believe you can do a "daily" painting at this level of finish.

Lovely painting.

Don Gray said...

Thanks, Lisa/Bill. If you read my April 8th post you'll see I didn't intend for people to think these most recent postings were "daily" productions. I should make that clearer with each post.

These last 2 pieces are just beautiful Don- such a mastery in both mediums!
