Best In Show...

Two For A Buck
36x24, Oil/Canvas
Best In Show, Art Explosion, 2011

"Two For A Buck" is the first painting in what I hope will become a series of Vendors and Scenes from The County Fair. I delivered it today (still wet!) as one of my entries in Art Explosion 2011, a juried exhibition sponsored by Arts United of Fort Lauderdale. I am honored that is was awarded "Best In Show". The opening reception will be February 12, 2011, 6-9 pm, at Art Serve, 1350 Sunrise Boulevard.

Flamingo Reflections

30x10, Oil/Linen
Handmade Frame

My first painting of the New Year 2011, Flamingo Reflections, will be featured at Flamingo Fest Art Exhibition to be held at Flamingo Gardens in Davie Florida. The event is january 15 & 16 but the artwork in The Gallery will be on display there until February 28. It is an amazing and beautiful garden with the flamingo lake and it is a place where all the birds in the aviary are rescues... They include White Pelicans, Bald Eagles, Roseate Spoonbills, a variety of Owls, and many others.

Flamingo Reflections was done mostly with a palette knife to keep energy and movement in the thick, lushly painted forms of the still bird.
