#twitterartexhibit (and more quinces)

Quinces Twitter 151124 blog

English Quinces (15cm x 11cm, mixed media, 2015)

I realise that creative people are always being asked to work for nothing, either for a good cause or to ‘raise your profile’, but here is something which doesn’t take long, is great fun and contributes to a good cause.

The Twitter Art Exhibit is the sixth incarnation of an open international exhibition of postcard art which benefits a different cause each year. The 2016 exhibition will be in New York City, so if you have a few moments to create a 16cm x 12cm piece do follow the link and send something in.

It won’t surprise regular visitors to this blog that I sent them a painting of some quinces (above), my obsession of the moment. I also painted a row of the little chaps to be entered into a local exhibition here in the UK but discovered that I’d missed the submission day:

And, were that not enough, I tried to celebrate in oils (still a work in progress) a single noble example from our own tree:

That, I promise, will be my last quince posting for this season*.

*Probably.

  1. All lovely to look at but I particularly love the the first one – it has such a punch, befitting the ‘little fists’. I’d welcome more if the urge strikes you, Michael – always a treat. They are becoming quintessential you!

    (I almost wrote ‘quincessential’, but ultimately thought better of it.)
