Just took some new paintings to my favorite gallery, Bush Barn Art Gallery in Salem, Oregon. Salem Art Association These were so much fun to create that you may see some more in the future. It's a series of 4 entitled "Germinate with Me"….here is one….
Last year I joined a wonderful co-op gallery in Silverton, Oregon called Lunaria Gallery. It's in a small community and with a lot of tourists coming to visit the popular Oregon Gardens. The gallery has 24 diversified artists with a lot of talent. This month (April) I have a solo show with over 50 pieces of art. My passion is still oil and cold wax. The title of my current show there is "Convergence". The show highlights assemblage pieces with found objects and vintage pieces, encaustic work, acrylic and mixed media, and of course oil and cold wax. These are a few:
I'm also busy teaching oil and cold wax classes. The Art Department located in Salem, Oregon has a wonderful room for us to spread out and create. My next class in May is titled 'Simple Abstract Lanscapes in Oil & Cold Wax'.
Today I just finished an energetic and exciting 4 day workshop in Portland, Oregon which was held through the Watercolor Society of Oregon of which I am a member. The workshop was with the very knowledgeable and prolific artist Robert Burridge. He is such a character with lots of funny stories and very open to sharing his secrets and wealth of marketing knowledge. And did I say "I love his art!"
