Great news!! My paintings have been accepted into Bistango Gallery Restaurant’s Fall Exhibition – August through November 2013. Reception is Saturday, August 10th, 3-5pm.
This is an exciting opportunity for hundreds of diners to view my art over a 4-month period. The restaurant is specifically designed to showcase paintings under good lighting where they can be seen from many viewpoints.
City Runways – 50″ x 40″ – was selected by the curator (Antoinette Sullivan of Studio Gallery) and Bistango’s owner, with a request for more of the same. Just finished City Runways #2. These take forever because I have to create a GridWorks painting first, then tape and paint over most of it.
My smaller-sized Floral Textures series was also selected for inclusion in the exhibition. There’s a lot of texture in each of these and most were created using palette knives. These will look great on side panels that separate the booths. Each diner is gifted with a direct view of one or more paintings. Price points are varied so there’s something for everyone.
Reception for Bistango artists and their guests is Saturday August 10, from 3 to 5pm. I’ll remind you as it gets closer, but please mark your calendars if you’re local. I’d love to see you there. Exhibit runs August through end of November.
IN PROCESS: First, I’ve added “gallery” pages to this blog. I’m still working through the rules as the app is new to me. Second, I have three paintings in process.
City Litter is part of the City series (more about that in another post), another is a fun abstract which seems to morph each day. Eventually I will declare it finished. And the third is Joyful, a flower painting I’m adding to the exhibition. Flowers are such fun; and because they are not tedious, I’m generally smiling while painting. A final glaze on this one and it’s ready to go. I used a slice of this painting to create the new blog banner. What do you think?
Hope you all enjoyed a few moments of gratefulness on Independence Day. I was blessed to be with family.
Love to all,
