Introduced new art series

Oceans to Mountains

At a late April art show in Lakewood Ranch I introduced my new art series “Oceans to Mountains.” The

The Blue Ridge. 13×17 landscape

first piece in this series is called The Blue Ridge, inspired by photography along the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina.

On my web page I have a page called Southwest & Mountains. It is also shown there.  Web speak: If I change the name of a page, I think it will break so I can’t just change the page to “Oceans to Mountains” — darn. However, It is going to be fun creating new art around those photos and places I love.

I am working on a landscape I will call Ice Lake Basin showing a mountain scene I took when hiking near Durango.

Two other landscapes are pre-dawn and dawn seascape photos I took at Vero Beach in Florida. Those are still in the sketching stage.

More web speak: I posted a story about April art shows and it is gone. Problems with WordPress end up with me restoring my entire web page back a month, losing everything I had done, including that post. There should have been a copy of it in my studio but I can’t find it. Oh, well.

April Art Shows

Briefly, I did one event in Vero Beach in the historic downtown area (not by the beach). And, this art event was put on by the city of Vero Beach’s marketing people. It was good to have done this show just because of certain people I met that put light into an otherwise dismal event.

Later, at the end of April I participated in a Paragon event in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. Saturday was good for attendance and art sales. I found many folks were interested in my textile art and asked intelligent questions. On Sunday, most people stayed away. Temperatures were too high for April. I can’t blame them for staying home. 

See you Fall 2019

In September 2019 my textile art will be on display at the library in Lake Wales, Florida. It will be there to view but to purchase you would have to contact me direct. In October I am supposed to have my work on display in Leesburg, Florida at the art center. More about all this later.

And, in November I am going to do one show. I haven’t decided upon whether to apply to the Daytona Beach or Temple Terrace show.

Good nights, good days and have a fun June.
