Greetings! I’m happy to announce that I am showing three of my ladies at the Rogue Gallery and Art Center in Medford, OR.
The Members Gallery will hang the ladies through January 10th, 2017 and the paintings are available for purchase.
About The Ladies
I Can’t Hear You, Watercolor, Image Size 15×12
This painting was based on my ninth drawing in the “Just Sayin’…” series. I am fascinated by how the use of a cell phone has effected our culture. One of the more amusing gestures I notice is the finger put to the ear in order to hear better. In this painting, my thoroughly modern lady is talking on her cell phone, using the thoroughly modern gesture of finger to her ear.
Just Sayin’…V8, Watercolor, Image Size 10.5×7
The “Just Sayin’…” series of paintings is inspired by the ubiquitous cell phone. One can scarcely be in public without noticing someone talking on the cell phone and overhearing the conversation. In this variation, my subject is an “upscale” lady, perhaps dressed for a special occasion like afternoon tea. Even she has a finger to her ear as she talks on her cell phone.
Irish Maiden, Watercolor, Image Size 10×7
With Irish Maiden, I wanted to combine symbols of Ireland in a Cubist-inspired designed. The maiden’s crown eludes to the triple spiral and triskel, symbolizing unity of mind, spirit and body. Naturally, I included shamrocks, the easily recognised symbol of luck. The shamrocks and the color green together remind me of every St. Patty’s Day in elementary school. Green was my favorite color and I made sure to wear plenty of green clothing. Add a shamrock pin and I was ready not to get “pinched”.
If you are in the southern Oregon area, I hope you will stop by the Rogue Gallery and view the paintings. Every third Friday of the month, the gallery holds a reception. This is a particularly festive time to visit the gallery.
