Fort Pierce Library Solo Art Show
Stop in at the downtown Fort Pierce Library on the corner of Melody Lane and Orange Ave during June for a colorful experience! I just hung 12 paintings, some brand new, at the library today.
New Fiesta Acrylic Abstract Series
When I was in Atlanta a few weeks ago, I had a great time painting some abstracts for my daughter and a whole new color series (in my favorite colors) that I've titled "Fiesta" especially for this show. The colors brought back memories of the colorful fiestas my husband and I attended when we lived in New Mexico during the late eighties/early nineties. Our favorite fiesta was Spanish Market in Santa Fe on the main square. We loved taking a break in a second floor restaurant balcony overlooking the square, sipping margaritas and enjoying the colors, smells, and music of the market.
This series comprises a 36"x 36" and three 24" x 24" paintings. They are all acrylic on 1.5" gallery wrapped canvases that are ready to hang without a frame. Since I love using glossy heavy gel medium, they have a nice sheen to them and lots of texture that I included with various texturing tools.
New Coral Reef Oil and Cold Wax Series
I just finished a new series of oil and cold wax paintings on cradled birch panels. In working this series, I returned to my love of the colors of the waters that surround us where my husband and I live on beautiful Hutchinson Island, Florida. In working the final stages of the paintings, I began adding corals to the blues on two of the pieces, and as I added some textures to the pieces, they reminded me of underwater coral, thus the name for the series. All pieces are 20" x 20" and two of the four paintings are included in the this show at the library.
Also included in this show are two 20"x20" oil and cold wax paintings from my "Wetlands" series, "Morning Mists" and "Wetlands."
