“For the Birds” has been very successful, thank you so much for all who attended and also those who purchased some of my work or Scott Wolf’s! Above is an ink sketch I did this week, only about 2 inches across. Though everything at the show at R. Pela Contemporary Art is still viewable there until the show ends, even if it sold, the small pieces nearly sold out, so Robrt asked me to bring in some more! I had found some unique little frames at a thrift store, so have been busy filling them with new and old doodles, including this new ink sketch in a tiny metal teapot frame.
This ink and wash sketch is also new, and not much bigger than the one above, but it’s in a larger frame. I aged this frame to give it some character and go with the drawing.
A LITTLE BIGGER
In addition to the wall of tiny affordable pieces, there are small to large ones still available too. Last I knew, many of the Royal Poultry series was still available but at least one had sold…so no fears about breaking up the set, that ship has already sailed! Above is one from the series, Chick Princess. These are small (5×7 in.) but elaborate, and in frames that add to their overall size.
The painting used in the show poster, The Hanging, is 24 x 18 in. (horizontal format). It is still available! It’s in a very cool frame, too.
REALLY BIG STUFF!
OK, I have worked larger but above is one of the largest I have in the show, Hen Party, 48 x 36 inches. There are two more ‘giant chicken’ paintings the same size. Still available!
Some of the larger pieces sold, too! All in all, it has been a successful and fun show. I met quite a few people I only online, especially Facebook.
I look forward to the 3rd Friday art walk, April 18, when we do it all over again! If you missed 1st Friday, or got there after so many of the little pieces sold, please come for 3rd Friday. Heck, even if you were there before, would be great to see you again!
Open 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month (art walk nights) and by appointment.
