Newer work #94
I love the desert rain when you can see it falling from a distance – sometimes the air below being so dry the rain never reaches the ground – the effect known as virga.
Newer work #93
A third collage from the batch I’m currently showing you.
Newer work #92
Another little collage, ready to go. Very appropriate for a post on a cloudy day.
Newer Work #91
I have been hoarding artwork, not putting up ‘newer work’ posts because I’ve been keeping so many of the newer paintings for competition. All those competitions are now postponed, except for the 55+ show where everyone’s work is now trapped inside the gallery for the duration. And all art fairs cancelled through at least mid May. I also read this morning that the coronavirus can only live on cardboard for 1 day and plastic for 3, which means even if I were to be infected (I do not believe I am), I can still ship artwork and it is safe! So, I might as well let you know what is available.
La Mirada talk and demo
Last week I went to the monthly meeting of the La Mirada Art Club to talk about my work and demonstrate part of my process for them. I was fortunate that one of the members agreed to take some pics of me working while I was assembling the refractured watercolor.
The poem in it reads:
Dawn leaves me speechless
These gold and turquoise jewels
precious beyond words.
I thought I’d try this way of reposting my Monthly Newsletter. Nope, my html isn’t good enough to get rid of the squares…..
Newer Work #90
“Stretch” is reminiscent of a painting I did in the early days where the tree reaches into the sun. This one though has a poem – a haiku – written for it and into it:
Stretch into the light
My leaves are needing the sun
Food comes from the sky.
Collage Artists of America Membership Show
The Collage Artists of America membership show, “Just your Imagination” was held at the San Fernando Valley Arts and Cultural Center. The show runs Sept 4-29th and the reception was on Sept 7th. As part of my contribution to the show, I sat in the gallery on the afternoon before the reception. It was quite during much of the afternoon though there were several families turned up with kids to have an art lesson.
I had forgotten my kindle so I had plenty of time to enjoy the exhibit in detail.
Ha – got so busy for a while, I forgot to post this month’s newsletter!
