Getting ready for the big FIRSTfriday gathering at Stifel & Capra tomorrow! I hung new paintings in my studio, and spiffed things up a bit.... Apparently, I was in a rather monochromatic mood... as witnessed by the mostly black and white images I hung. Except for that burst of pink in the middle, reminding us all that since it is March, spring (and cherry blossoms for us in the Washington, DC area) should be here soon. And I can't wait. In the meantime, mosey on down to Falls Church and Stifel & Capra for FIRSTfriday.
I am honored that my mixed media piece "Family Tree" won first place in the juried Arlington Artists Alliance show, "Walk the Line". This show was juried by Carolyn Gawarecki, a nationally recognized watercolor artist. I thought the piece fit the theme well, as it utilized alot of line work in the tree and roots. Some of the finer branches and tree roots are defined by thread. I also lined my play on words, of a family tree being based on someones "lineage"... Get it?
The show will be hung at Cassatt's Cafe and Gallery, from March 17 to April 21, 2013. The Opening Reception will be held on Sunday, April 7th.... Hope to see you there!
I have been an artist all of my life. I can't help it. Drew on the walls in kindergarten, painted pictures in high school, went to Art School, worked as an art director, started painting again. And am loving it.
