Minnesota State Fair Fine Art Show preview


I gotta go to bed, but first a preview of the Fine Art show.  Here's my favorite that I voted for (there's a people's choice favorite that gets bragging rights all year when the fair is over).  It's called "Rusty on the Sound" and the artist is Kat Corrigan from Minneapolis.  I love the colors, and the fat brush strokes that seem to go along with the subject matter--a big dog--and it's also neat how when you walk back away from the painting, the reflection really pops.  It's about 3 feet tall, so it really makes a statement.

3 feet?!!?

I love it, too.

yeah, I really like Kat's art, too. You might enjoy her blog, http://katcorrigan.blogspot.com, and she currently has a showing of her dog paintings at the Birchwood. It just opened on Sept. 15. I haven't gone to see it yet. Wanna go next week sometime for tea, maybe?
