CLOVERDALE CALIFORNIA’s TOWERS GALLERY
A new exhibit has started at the local Towers Gallery in the town where I live. Featured in this new show are wonderful artists between 80 and 100 years of age. The show is testimony to that creative spark that never ends and thrives – if you chose to let it. I have met a few of these artists, who are as vibrant as their paintings. They are my role models, they keep me inspired to keep creating art no matter what, and for however long I am on this earthly journey.
The new gallery is smaller, but still brims with a diversity of artistic expression ~ jewelry, fused glass, fabric art, metal sculpting, watercolor, oil and acrylic paintings, mixed media, and pottery fill the spaces in a more intimate setting. If you are in the area, I hope you can stop by to meet the artists at May 30th’s reception ~ or anytime you are on your way north to the coast or south to San Francisco, I invite you take a diversion from that 101 freeway to Cloverdale Boulevard.
MY CORNER My colorful pillows, in my “Pillow Your Nest”© Collection are now on sale at 20% off original price – choose one or two to brighten up your home or gift a friend.
Eight of my paintings are also on display. Come see them close up and just maybe you’d like to bring one home to enhance the ambiance of your living space. I paint subjects that intuitively speak to me in color, or form or landscape, and reflect my experience and appreciation for life around me and within me.
IN THE STUDIO ~ NEW PROJECT IN PROGRESS~ Old Craft Resurrected
STAY TUNED for completion of my 12 canvas floor cloths project! I’ve long been thinking of getting back to a passion of mine – canvas floor cloths, which I started making while living in Sedona, AZ. An old craft brought from England by the colonists, these have a modern touch – amazingly durable, and a lovely, unique accent for your living space. Thinking about it long enough, I’m back into action making these and am reminded how much I love to create them – you can say I am on a quite a time-intensive ambitious roll and loving it! Two complete and 10 on the design board to go. (Ref: Nov 17, 2014 blog and click on tab “stencil art” in the main menu)
You may contact me directly about any of these paintings. I am also open to commissions for paintings or canvas floor cloths Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
