Closeup Photos - Midtown Scholar Debut (with commentary)

I posted photos last night that were event photos and photos of the canvases.  None of them reflected any of the cool detailed stuff people did though.  I wanted to take the opportunity to get some of those pictures up.

I also want remind everyone who has painted on these canvases that they are living works of art and they will change over time.  At our event last night we saw the canvases transform with vibrant color washes that were applied.  Though this evolution may have "taken away" from some of the details of the existing components of the works I think it is a great step to the next step.  We no longer have all these blank spots, much of the color is bright, and as you can see from some of these pictures the community has already started to add new details to the paintings in this new context.  I hope no one feels that their efforts have been- for lack of a better word: ruined... I hope everyone appreciates that all of the impressions on the canvases work to create the whole, and they are all appreciated and valuable!

So having said all that here are some more close-up pictures that I will add captions to:

That is one interesting bird...

The bird with some context...

The fishbowl...

I think Dr. Seuss is making his way in...

Girl and boy...

Sitting by the fire...

A butterfly checking out paw-prints...
(Yes those red marks were made by our first canine artist)

How many faces will this one make...

What do you see?

Keeping an eye on things...

More jellyfish!  We love jellyfish!

Something is growing...

Ladybugs are all the rage!

See!

Heart-flower

I see a fish!

This corner is coming along!

Let the sunshine in!

A pretty flower... or perhaps the sun...

What do you see?

Having a look...
