Lord of Life Lutheran Church Vanguard Exhibit

Kristi Herring sent these photos of the recent hanging of the new Lord of Life exhibit by Vanguard artists Liz Mullen, Sharon King and Anne Breza. She is the Vanguard photographer and it is special that she brought her camera along while she and a friend visited the exhibit.

 My apologies to Sharon King and Liz Mullen since their two paintings were not included since Blogger would not let me rotate them and they were laying on their sides! After three different programs let me down, I will just invite you to go to the church and see these lovely paintings in person! ...Your blog administrator.

September Challenge

It has been brought to my attention that there is confusion regarding the September Challenge. I asked Aileen to clarify for us, and this is what she said:

The Challenge is one painting per artist.  If an artist paints in a realistic form they are to push them selves and have the majority of the painting on the abstract side with a hint of realistic.  If a painter works more in a abstract form they are to have the majority realistic with a hint of  abstract in their painting.  

There are many different ways to handle this challenge

If people will google abstract to realism or realism to abstract they will see many examples.

What this means to me, personally, is that I have an almost-finished painting for the challenge that is wrong! Oh well, at least I am painting!
