Calif. State Capitol Building
This acrylic on stretched canvas measures 36"X48" and is one of two paintings that I have in a "Sunrise/ Sunset" show at the Elliot Fouts Gallery here in Sacramento. I titled this one "Capitol Morning". Here are the progressive photos I took as I "built" the Capitol. Now here is the funny part. The Fouts Gallery does this show in January every year and remember that it is called the "Sunrise/Sunset Show". I figured that I'd make a big splash and enter this large "Capitol Morning" canvas, and that would be it..one largie counts for two smallies...right?...wrong! When I delivered the canvas to the gallery, Elliot asked, "Where's your sunset painting?" Fortunately I had one that was slated for a two man show I'm in next month. I post it here. So now I have my sunrise and sunset painting...the only problem being that one measures 36"X48" and the other 6"X12". A tad extreme is size differential, but the good news is that the wee one here has already sold.
