This little, 8×6 inch, oil on birch panel is titled “Looking Back”.
I spent a good part of today scanning the original painting,
color-correcting in Photoshop, wiring, framing, and delivering it.
It will be on display in the Parker Art Salon, Small Art Fundraiser Exhibition, priced at $200.–.
This year 50% of sales will be donated to Anxiety Disorders Association of BC (Anxiety BC).
I’m almost back to normal after the amazing Parker Art Salon weekend where I exhibited my Wings Series. I’m so happy that most of them flew away to new homes.
These pieces are acrylic paintings on birch cradled panels and are 6 x 8 inches in size. Titles marked with an asterisk are sold.
Before the show opened, I did a tour of the halls and took some photos of the artwork. Some of my personal favourites were: our assembled mural, of course; David Robinson‘s sculpture — a larger-than-life-size figure made of cardboard (yes. cardboard!) and installed over a stairwell — is another fine addition to David’s signature oeuvre of finely balanced muscular tension;
Val Nelson‘s masterly ‘loose’ brushwork describing, with oil on canvas, the plastic colour combinations and perspective of an urban construction-site as landscape;
and Eve Leader‘s waxy, earth-toned, delicate meditations, in oil on mylar, that are at once sensuous and thought provoking.
Check out more of my photo tour (I was not able to capture it all), and the Georgia Straight online newspaper where, along with a photo tour of the halls at Parker Street, my partner and I are shown setting up my paintings for display.
