The Gallery

Just wanted to share some photos of the first gallery hanging. Never thought I would see this day come but thanks to the help of my good friend Teresa W...we made it happen!  Starbucks...a level...and a few nails later... gallery0001

the tree painting on the left titled "Reaching For The Sky" is my latest painting.  I had shot some photos of the trees in my backyard last fall and this is my interpretation...colorful and elongated.  I've always had a affection for wintering trees, not sure why, maybe it's just the graphic nature of the branches against the sky...BEAutiful!!

one of my next projects will be the chair in front of the fireplace.  I just got back from a trip to Mary Jo's fabric store with some really cool linen bug fabric.  I think I will hand applique at least one bug to the back of the chair...not sure yet...will have to play with the images a while and see what happens.  I hope to have it up for sale at the "Open Studio" event in November.  Check out the Metropolitan Arts Council's website to see all of the participating artist. http://www.greenvillearts.com/programs/open_studios_list.aspx ...should be a really great weekend for art lovers...please come visit!
