Painters and Players Celebrate Sheboygan!

This past Friday, I was one of several featured artists at the Sheboygan Visual Artist’s February 2014 Final Friday: “Painters and Players Celebrate Sheboygan.”  At the event, and during the next few weeks in March, six of my paintings with subjects from within Sheboygan are on display and for sale.

Here I am standing near the paintings:

Enjoying Good Art, Good Friends, Good Creating…

IMA Art 3

While I was on vacation last week around Thanksgiving, I enjoyed a few hours catching up with friends from years ago, Scott and Megen Smith at the Indianapolis Musuem of Art.

Among his many gifts, Scott is a artist/photographer. Megen is a creative speech therapy teacher in the public school system.  After enjoying lunch with them and talking about the art of life, we enjoyed an exhibit of the artwork of Matisse at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. After that, we were all a little daringly inspired, so we created a few works of art on our own… with the museum’s iPads in a wonderful imagination space… here’s my Matisse-inspired creation “Sunny Day by the Lake”…

A Wonderful Holiday Show and Sale | Sheboygan Visual Artists

This year I was happy to participate in the annual Sheboygan Visual Artists Holiday Show and Sale.  Having just joined the group, I am getting acquainted with the members, and beginning to learn about the group and its many functions.  This year I displayed two paintings, one of which I was excited to sell in the Silent Auction.  Here below I am standing next to my painting, “The Falls in Spring” being displayed in the main gallery.
