In preparing for the show I have done a few paintings that are a bit different from some things in the past. I am excited to see the the response. Here are a couple of the new works.
I love the misty mornings and golden sunsets in the north woods. Recently I have noticed a lot more herons in the area. One of my favorite sites is sitting and watching the sunset and the silhouette of a heron goes by. I think this painting captures those moments for me.
I love taking road trips with no real plan. On one such road trip I stopped on Beale Street in Memphis. This is a must for anyone who love Blues. The clubs are run down and dark and full of blues history. This particular club had a lot to see and hear. It seemed like the perfect show to reveal this painting since after the artist reception on July 11th Reverend Raven and the Chain Smokin' Alter Boys have a concert at the Art Center.
I hope you will consider visiting me on the 11th for the artist reception between 5-7 pm. Or at least stop by the Three Lakes Center for the Arts and see the show. I would love to hear what you think.
