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.
I am so thrilled to be one of the contributing artists for this event, and I’m hoping to have completed two more pieces before the opening night. If you happen to be in Indianapolis, the Athenaeum is a very cool historic building and worth visiting in its own right. Rejuvenation Indy will have art there as well. Please come check it out. If you can’t make it to the opening reception, the exhibit will be there the whole month of April. I’ll be there with bells on!
Intuitive Abstract painting workshop!
Indy friends, I will be guiding a painting class at the very hip Acceleration gallery on Shelby St., in Fountain Square, on Sunday, April 23, from 2:00-4:00. Wine and beer are included as well as all supplies!! Just show up ready to make a little mess, have some fun, relieve some stress, and take home an abstract painting. The workshop is called Intuitive Abstract painting and I will show you how I completed one of my favorite paintings, Hope – A Tribute to Paris. Cost is $25 per person. It’s a bargain, and even if you think you can’t paint, you will have a blast!
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.
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!
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.
