A new year, a new decade, and new artwork!
Please come to our opening at the Franklin Street Gallery this Friday, January 7, 2011 from 4:30 til 6:30. We will have wine tasting, music by Tom Locher, and beautiful new art to show off!
I have 5 brand new pastels, in a new, larger size: 12" by 16", inspired and encouraged by Constance Baltuck. Her challenge to us was "paint bigger" and I have to agree that larger pieces are looking quite nice in our beautiful gallery at the Baranof Hotel.
We have quite a few winter scenes, as it appears that we are experiencing that season, despite some rainy and warmish days recently.
Here is one of my favorite new pieces, you can see them all in the gallery entitled "January 2011." This one is titled "Douglas Cemetary" and it is based on some photos I took in August on a spectacular evening. We were driving home from Douglas and I glanced out of the car and made Mark pull over so I could get out and take a bunch of pictures of the light streaming through the trees and over old grave markers along the Douglas Highway. I made a watercolor underpainting and then used my pastels over the top.
Thanks for visiting! I hope you get a chance to come by the Franklin Street Gallery at the Baranof sometime this month to see our new work.
