Put On Display

Sun Setting On The Blue Moon Rising - Oil On Linen 24 x 30 Copyright 2011 K. Hitt

This Painting was hung in the recent exhibit at the Venice Art Center and will be on display there until Oct. 7th as a part of the "VAC Instructor's, Staff and Board of Director's Show" . You can ask at the front desk for my supply list that also list this years upcoming workshops at VAC.  They are listed here too on my Classes Page.  I was very honored at the Opening by how many shared that the painting above was picked "favorite".  It is one of my favorites too, along with depicting one of my favorite locations in Venice.  Can you guess where it is?  I added below a few of the steps along the way of this painting too.  Enjoy.  The photo doesn't quite do the colors justice.  Hope you will stop by in person and see for yourself.

Another unique side to this painting... learned that there is a truth to once in a 'blue moon'.  This exact setting will not take place again for another 100+ years.  Sun was setting, literally as the Blue Moon was rising.  Hence the title.  May it be an UP day!  Hope to see you out and about.  K
