I am absolutely thrilled to be featured in elan Magazine this month! I had such a good time talking with reporter Donna Cedar-Southworth and Editor Alice Ross. They truly are supporters of the Arts, and show that through their great work with elan Magazine. Elan featured my "Common Threads" series of paintings, even publishing one on their Table of Contents. Below is the rest of the article.
My Mixed Media Painting was selected for the annual "Scapes" exhibit at the Art League Gallery at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria. Stop by and see all the great work! Info can be found here. The exhibit was juried by Johnathon Linton, and the prospectus stated:
Our landscape has been visually rendered since the beginning of time and remains one of the most beloved subjects in art. For ‘Scapes, the annual August landscape exhibit at The Art League Gallery, artists are invited to submit works illustrating all elements of our external world.
Landscape art portrays the world around us. However, a landscape artist is not a camera that records whatever happens to be in front of the lens. He or she is not required to paint exactly what he sees.
Artwork inspired by all environments may be a part of this exhibit – urban and rural, industrialized and primitive, coastal and arid, and the beauty and destruction created by Mother Nature. Works of all media may be submitted. Artists are encouraged to explore unique perspectives, literally and figuratively, as well as varying moods and color.
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.
