Paintings Looking To Be Loved!

Siegrist Miniature Paintings At Shows

We recently have sent out over eighty paintings to various shows.  (We regret we had to skip some we’ve done for years due to the lack of immediately available work new to these shows.) Most of the paintings we shipped out were part of our EXQUISITE MINIATURES tour at the Albany Museum of Art but we’ve also sent to miniature shows in galleries in Ohio, North Carolina and Pennsylvania.  These group shows can all be viewed online with all of our paintings hoping to be acquired by loving patrons.  We get very excited when paintings go home with collectors both new and existing.  While knowing the bills are paid is a relief the real excitement comes from realizing we get to paint something new to replace the sold works!  We have so many planned paintings … the truth is, we’ll be lucky to finish half of them in our lifetime, even as prolific as we are at our easels.  Seems we keep getting inspired on a daily basis so the ideas keep growing faster than our paint can dry!

Male African Lion painting by Rachelle Siegrist
“Courage” by Rachelle Siegrist

Rachelle finished her painting of a lion this week that will be heading to Lovetts Gallery soon for their upcoming miniature show.  She also sent off two more dog portrait commissions and hopes to be able to share them soon.  I started another Tandem Treasure that we’ll both be working on to complete and we’ll share it later.  I also started four new paintings and since they’ve been requested for consideration by a collector as a set, I did all the basic backgrounds simultaneously.  The photo here shows them after I started working individually on some.  We sometimes use a hairdryer to speed drying but prefer to let the watercolors dry on their own with washes especially when doing wet into wet techniques.  These four paintings stayed wet for hours as I (aka the painting machine) tweaked one and then the other.
