At Luis' Studio
oil on panel

I had intended to keep this very loose & more abstract,
but on such a small panel, it is hard not to tighten up.

Nevertheless, I'm fairly pleased with it. I think I particularly like the composition of the yellow floor, blue blanket, red pillow and stripey drapes; it gives the whole piece a bit of animation, even with the restful pose.

Art in the Dark

Dominique's Gaze

First of all, don't worry, Domenique, your head is not shaped that way! That is just my distortion, call it poetic license, but that is a bit of your expression.

Well, tonight was pretty funny. Right at the stroke of our GALA Spring Show opening, we had a black out! Art in the Dark. Unfortunate, but we just had to laugh. I felt bad for the musicians, though.

The show will be viewable for two more days, anyway.
I received a couple of ribbons; one for an acrylic painting, and one for an oil.

GALA Spring Art Show

Akimbo in Limbo
mixed media

Just messing around with a monoprint I never much liked.

But the important thing is: this weekend is the Spring art show for GALA- The Gardner Area League of Artists; three days of art and live music.

The show is a non-juried event, but pieces will be judged, and this time around we've managed to get some rather impressive judges:
Catherine Wilcox-Titus from the gallery at WSU
Eileen Byrne from the Brush Gallery, Lowell and
Jeff Beck from the Fitchburg Art Museum.

The event will be held at the
PACC at 117 Kendall Pond Rd. West, in Gardner, MA

Artists Reception
Friday the 23rd 6-9 p.m. light refreshments and cash bar
Saturday, March 24, 11a.m.-6 p.m.
Sunday, March 25, Noon-4 p.m.

As always, the event is free & open to the public.

almost there.....

Not quite done, but almost there. I need to let this dry some before I get back into it.
I have been enjoying working small scale.
There is a certain freedom in it.

Pair o' Pears

Pear studies

I have felt a little artistically adrift since the closing of our show. So rather than nothing, I have been doing these little still life studies. Sort of hackneyed, but better than twiddling my thumbs.
