On Sunday, I’ll drop off 8 paintings that will be shown at All City Coffee in Georgetown. There will be over 400 pieces of art in all. Come and check out local artists work! I will post the information when I receive it. Also, I will have about 50 small pieces that can be seen and purchased at my studio. Call 206-355-9322 to schedule an appointment.
October 1st marked the opening of Colorspace Studio. This is a very important time in my life. My art is flourishing, and this is becoming one of my most prolific years since I began painting in 2004. Until now, 2006 was my most productive year of painting. I am very happy that Maria Hines has chosen my art to hang indefinitely at Agrodolce Restaurant, as well as in a business in Wallingford.
In addition, I am participating in the 2013 Miniature Art Extravaganza at All City Coffee In Georgetown, and next month, on December 8th (save the date), Inscape Arts will have its open house. It is done quarterly, so this is the final showcase for the year, but my first since becoming a business there! All tenants, including myself, will have their doors open to the public for all to see our talents. Perfect timing for Christmas gifts made my local artists of all types. I am truly excited for this next year there and seeing what will manifest.
Thank you to all my friends and family. xo
By mid-September I will have a new series of Colorstretch works hanging at Agrodolce Restaurant in the Fremont neighborhood of Seattle. They will be placed in the bar of the restaurant.
The Colorstretch technique that I started using in 2006 has evolved over the years. The artistry is still being worked on as far as paint used and the process of making the painting itself. The look is inspired by the love of fluidity, water swirling, tides, waves. I have to admit that another reason I like the technique is because it reminds me of 1960-70″s era sound speakers that my Mom had when I was a kid. They had this beautiful swirly colored fabric that was so unique and fun to look at. Your eyes followed the whole surface.
The new ones in the works are going to be the largest to date with the size of 36″ x 48″ they will be rather large and therefore far more eye flow. There will be ones with thinner bands of color that are tighter together, and ones that have wider bands of pure color.
My gallery Colorstretch on the blog has the first one painted and my most recent. They are best viewed in person. To see my Colorstretch paintings in person contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
