Art Exhibit at 96 Street Public Library

The 1100 Watercolor Society (of which I am a member) is having an art exhibit at the 96 Street Public Library (Lex – Park) from January 4 through January 29, 2016.  Artists Reception: Saturday, January 9, 2016 2-4pm (Lower Level).

I have three paintings in this exhibit, all of which I like, but one of which represents a change in direction for me.

I Can Fly

I Can Fly      18×24      $1400

Frustrated by my inability to capture the wonderful pattern in a scarf in our complicated still life set-up at the Art Students League, I washed out the whole thing. When all that was left were vague shadows of the previous painting, I grabbed a big brush and just started swooping in the color. Because I wasn’t worried about ruining anything, (or creating a “masterpiece” for that matter), the painting just happened.

At the end of the summer, I was getting ready to start working in acrylic, something that simultaneously thrilled and terrified me. This painting says: Everything is going to be okay. I can fly.
