An Invitation.....

I am taking part in a group show at Galerie Viva Vida in Pointe Claire Village of small format works.
I have two paintings at this gallery.
The first one is a 14" square oil painting, finished on all sides to be hung frameless (or framed if you prefer) of a bowl of pears on my favorite black floral fabric.  And the second image is a 8" x 24" mixed media acrylic painting on wood panel with a depth of 1.5".  I enjoy including paintings within paintings and this one features a mini interpretation of one of Bougeureau' of my favorite artists.  The teacup in the front of that image is of one of my Lilly of the Valley teacups and the reason I titled this one "Lillies of the Valley" to include the two young girls in the image.
This exhibit will run until the end of January.

I LOVE Color.....

Sat at my torch this week for the first time in months and made these simple beads.  I had a tendency to
overwork each bead with various techniques but when it comes right down to it, simple is good.  The glass speaks for itself.
