September Show

compotiers of fruit (4)

My still life table has been a busy setting lately and this painting above, called “Food for Thought” will appear in an upcoming Art League exhibit.  It’s an acrylic painting and measures 36 x 18 inches.  I have been painting a lot!

The painting has a cousin, a small work 20 x 16 inches that features the same compotier.

Currently it hangs in the May exhibit at the Torpedo Factory in Old Town Alexandria.  Very pretty light in the gallery today though there were areas of flooded streets just outside the building.  Mother Nature dropped A LOT of rain on the Washington DC region.

Capricious Mother Nature.

Here’s a view of the installation:

on the wall: Sea Flower

This small painting Sea Flower will be on exhibit beginning this week in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, at the Torpedo Factory.  It combines two of my favorite things — a Queen conch seashell and my favorite floral cloth.

Here’s another view of the cloth, a detail from another painting.

The favorite floral cloth ends up in a lot of things.

In Sea Flower the two subjects almost blend together in a fairly abstract image.  It was the camouflaging of the seashell in the painting that made me realize that the Queen conch is kind of a flower itself, a hard beautiful calcite flower.

The painting on exhibit is for sale. Inquire for details.
