New Year, New Paintings
January is here again and it's time for my annual show of new paintings. Please join me at SoDu Gallery Saturday January 30 6-9 pm for an evening of food, friends and fun. Here are my favorites from the show.
"I've Got Your Back," the painting of two pearly nautilus shells was inspired by the two shells I bought several years ago while shopping with my friend Katherine in Virginia Highlands, Atlanta. I said I would paint them one day and I did this summer. Done in one long(and painful) sitting, the paint was flowing just right as the layers of the shells grew and grew.
"Callas" is a bit shell like in form. I loved the colors of turquoise fading into creamy yellow.
