Epiphany Art Show 2011

This year I entered two paintings into the Epiphany Festival. This one is 22x 28" and called "Easter Lily"

The Bath Church does such an excellent job of making everyone feel welcome and displaying the art work.

There was music
and food


The hand crafted items of wood and glass, pottery and fiber were outstanding.

My second entry is large, 3'  x 4', called "The Promise Land" it seemd like the perfect theme for this show. 

( hmmm - how many ACEOs would this make?)

A big thank you to all who worked so hard to make this show possible.

This is a 16x20 abstract inspired by the idea of television. do you remember th days when you had to turn on the set before your show started to 'warm it up'? In fact do you remember the days when you turned the tv on and after your show you turned it off? Back when the television wasn't left on 24/7. Back in the day when you had to get up to turn the channel and when the knob broke you had a pliers ready to turn the dial. Back when  there were rabbit ears that often had to have additional tin foil flaps wrapped around them. Sometimes you had to stand and hold the antenna in order to get a reception. And the tv was encased in a huge wooden console. Remember?

Monument Valley

Those of you who follow me on eBay know I did an ACEO size of this same scene "Yei Bi Chai". I love painting these clear skies and warm tones of the Southwest. One of the shows at the MD Garage this summer will be "The Great American Landscape" and this painting will be included.

Fruit Salad

Well, I guess I'm missing an apple, some grapes, maybe a few berries. But this is a start. My oranges are singing in the morning light but the bananas are more subdued. they can be like that you know. No shine off that mellow yellow exterior.

Both are acrylic, ACEO size.

Old Friends

So I had some onions in the pantry that were giving off that strong onion-y smell and so I did what every good artist would do... I painted them before throwing them out. (Acually they are still my my studio, growing stronger every day)I loved painting the  long entwined green spouts.
I did two versions in two different palettes.

This is a 5x7 called " Growing Old Together"~

and this is the ACEO version~ "Old Friends"

Both are listed on eBay here
