Lon and I are going to Lexington, KY for the opening of the ‘Body Figure Nude’ show this Friday night at the Lexington Art League. If you’re in the area come out and see it. Lon has a couple pieces in the show and its a fundraiser for a good cause.
Lon did some plein air painting at The Confluence Greenway yesterday. They’re about 12″ x 14″ or so, both in oil.
These were done at the Big Cedar Lodge Plein Air Paint-out, Oct 12-15.
Here are some of the latest paintings Lon has made.
This is a plein air oil painting of the field and woods across the street from our house Lon did on Sunday, Sept 11. The size is 24″ x 14″.
These paintings were done Monday, Sept. 12. They are all 5 inches square in 13 inch square frames.
The Art Fair at Queeny Park was a success. We sold a painting and a few prints at the show and a couple more paintings after the show. We made some new friends as well, which is always nice, and won an award of excellence – also very cool.
Here’s a pic of our booth at Queeny. The second and fourth paintings on the left outside wall are the two that sold last week.
We had to alter the booth QUICKLY when we got there since it was a 10′x8′ space rather than the 10′x10′ of most shows. That meant taking off one of our panels and rethinking how to reconfigure the lights. Luckily, Lon is great at thinking on the fly and he was able to pull it together and it didn’t look like we’d ever had a problem.
All considered, it was a good show and we’ll keep it on the list to possibly participate again next year.
Good Morning! I’m Djuana (pronounced doo WAH nah), the at-large person of Lon Brauer Studios. I manage the website and blog, help out at art fairs, and generally hang out with Lon as much as possible. I still have three kids at home so my time is limited, but I try to be available as much as I can. We work it out. :)
We’re getting ready for our first fall art fair season. This year we’re going to be at The Art Fair at Queeny Park in Manchester, MO http://gslaa.org/GSL_festivals.htm Sept. 2-4 , the Zona Rosa Arts Festival in Kansas City, MO http://www.zonarosa.com/events/eventdetails/tabid/3340/articleid/2550/8th-annual-zona-rosa-arts-festival.aspx Sept. 16-18, the Shaw Art Fair in St. Louis, MO http://www.shawartfair.org/ Oct 1-2, and Art in the Park in Highland, IL http://highlandartscouncil.org/ Oct 8-9. We’re excited about being in the shows but there’s a lot of work to do over the next couple weeks to pull a nice-looking booth together. Its going to be busy around here for a while.
