2018. Acrylic and charcoal on foamboard. 6.5 x 8.25 in.
Wow. The drought has attenuated if not ended. I WILL be showing work on walls again!
First, the 29 Palms Art Gallery reopened in March, and I will have a couple pieces in the Members Gallery for the month of April. Featured artists are Khrysso Heart LeFey and Warner Graves, hours 11-3 Thursday through Sunday. I will be docenting this Thursday April 1 if you want to stop by and say a socially distanced and masked hi!
Second, I have registered for Open Studio Art Tours in October! I’ll be doing the
second and third weekends (16-17 and 23-24) first and second weekends (9-10 and 16-17), covid-goddess willing. I’m very pleased. I love showing my work in my own studio and really missed it last year.
Above is a little early acrylic work which was very important in my evolution with acrylics. I suppose it counts as a “small Ways” piece as I was using up some leftover paint on a scrap of foamboard covered with clear gesso. The linework with charcoal happened first, and the paint followed totally spontaneously. I was very pleased with it, and it opened up a world of possibilities in my mind. My work has progressed so much over the last three years, but I have yet to match some of those early, accidental pieces that hit me right in my sweet spot, like this one. 🙂
