Art of the Ages

Wow  What a great event and what a lovely setting.  We had a great turnout for WOIA presents Art of the Ages.  If you are ever in Indianapolis, be sure to check out The Athenaeum.  The building is stunning and the arts space is just ethereal.  I am so honored and thrilled to have some of my paintings there for the month of April.

Midwest Winter Sunrise

I just finished and signed this 12 x 24″ acrylic on canvas.  It’s from a photograph by Ohio artist and photographer Shannon Godby, who has generously given me his permission to use the photo for inspiration.  It was fun experimenting with glaze.

This is the most recent update.  I’m fairly pleased with it so far!

RED exhibit

I’m excited to say that this painting was accepted for the upcoming RED exhibit at the Raymond James Stutz Gallery in Indianapolis.  This my first juried exhibit, and my third exhibit at the Stutz Gallery in downtown Indianapolis.  It will be for sale after the exhibit.  If you’re in the area, come by on Friday, February 3rd.  The address is 212 W. 10th St., Indianapolis IN 46202.

New Year = New techniques & new knowledge

In keeping with my resolution to really focus on my art this year, I’ve tried a new approach to a painting, and I’m experimenting with glazing.  I’m probably not doing it right, but I think it’s something that requires practice.  I also signed up for a teaching course on the business side of being a professional artist.  I’m hoping the investment is worthwhile and can get me more exposure, and of course, more sales.  I’m hoping to have at least one of these three paintings in the Stutz exhibit for February, and I’ll have some of my art at Sacred Roots Midwifery and Birth Center for the next few months.  Wish me luck.

 

I’ll keep you posted!

 

 

Happy New Year

I’m full of creative ideas right now, and very excited about approaching painting in different ways.  An old dear friend mentioned to me recently that she loves my abstract paintings more than any others.  Most of the paintings I’ve done to sell or to give as gifts have been of landscapes that have special meaning to the recipient, but the ones that have been the most fun for me have been the abstracts.  Here’s to a new year of painting!   This is a work in progress inspired by a photograph by one of my favorite New Orleans photographers, John Snell, who has graciously given me permission to use his photographs.  Check out his work.  You will understand why people have a hard time leaving Louisiana.

Mini paintings are great gifts for anytime!

Mini paintings make fantastic gifts. A little touch of original art that is reasonably priced and very transportable makes a unique statement that will add to the personal touches of someone’s home or office. Send me a favorite photograph of a flower, tree or landscape and I will create something just for you. At this point, I could not guarantee it would be ready before Christmas, but think about birthdays, Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, Mothers’ Day, Fathers’ Day, or the best of all:  a gift for no apparent reason.

Sunrise Through Sea Oats

We took a trip to the panhandle of Florida over Labor Day weekend and the week after; specifically to Pensacola and Grayton Beach. Having grown up (some might argue that) in New Orleans, I spent ma…
