Award Show

I’m thrilled to invite you all to my first art exhibit: All Things Holy. I was awarded the honor of a solo exhibition when I won Best of Show for “The Green Vase,” in September, 2012, at Artel Gallery, Pensacola, FL. Most of the work to be on display has been created since that date. The show runs from June 4 to July 12 in the Award Alcove and coincides with Artel’s main juried event: Time.

The reception is June 14, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

I would love to see you there!

Seumas McNally (1979 to 2000)

I knew Seumas as a sweet, giggly and brilliant child. He grew into his good nature and genius until, tragically, cancer stole him from us just after his 21st birthday, in 2000.

We all miss you, Seumas.

You can read my sister Wendy’s eulogy of her son here.

This painting is meant to be viewed while listening to Arvo Part’s Spiegel im Spiegel. Below is a short version of the song on YouTube, but a superior and complete version can be found on Q2 Music (@q2music) by clicking here and scrubbing to 1:45:45. 

Spiegel im Spiegel, the painting, has been accepted into the juried “Family” show at Artel Gallery, and is on view from March 5 to April 12.

Seumas McNally Remembered

This was my short video tribute to Seumas on the 10th anniversary of his death.

Take the Challenge

I’m connected with the most amazing painter on Google Plus, +Lena Levin.

She started a couple of challenges: “Chagall Challenge”:  making a Chagall-inspired artwork (in any medium, traditional or digital) and posting it on G+ for virtual exhibition in December at +In Studio With The Masters. Any visual artist is invited to participate for a virtual exhibition in December. The other was a personal challenge: the “Wrong color”: to paint something in color that would seem “wrong” realistically speaking, but that would feel “right” to the painter.  The bold freshness of her “Floating apple” got me hooked!

So, besides working on the Chagall Challenge on the side, I started me on my own “Quick Study” challenge. The first thing I do when I walk in the studio is grab a small canvas or board and sketch with paint for ten minutes—like stretching before running. There are no expectations of genius in these, just raw expression.

The image in this post is part of my “Quick Study” series but inspired by Lena’s floating apples. It left me unimpressed; I left it in a corner. Danny’s only comment was, “They’re square!”—hence, the name. But after a couple of days, seeing it out of the corner of my eye, I grew very fond of it! You might not like it, or any of the other studies I’ll post, but they help me work out my color-kinks! So feel free to comment, even if you detest what you see!
