Wedgewood And Wine

Wedgewood and Wine, Oil on Linen, 22x30

I am pleased to announce that this painting will be among several that will now be shown at The Gallery on Broad, 29 Broad Street in Charleston. I am very honored that owner, Kate Mullin, asked me to join her family of award winning artists, many of whom enjoy national reputations.  It has been my goal to have my work represented by a Charleston gallery for some time, and I am so excited by this wonderful opportunity!

Chinese Red

Chinese Red, Oil on Linen,  26x30

I completed this painting recently, and want to thank my friend, Scotty, for loaning me her beautiful antique Chinese lunch basket.  The basket is two hundred years old and so elegant. Imagine using it to carry your lunch!  The intricacies of the detail were challenging to draw, but I hope I was able to capture its grace and magnificent red color.  I am loving red these days!

In two weeks I will be heading back to Pinehurst, NC for the Palustris Arts Festival March 26-29. The festival is a celebration of local and regional arts featuring music, dance, theater and visual art. Hollyhocks Art Gallery has been chosen as one of the featured venues, and is hosting a reception on Friday, March 27 from 5-7 pm.  For those of you in the area, please stop by.
