Poster for Solo Exhibit $50 available at John B. Strong Fine Art
Lindsey and I are gearing up for our quick trip to Scottsdale, Arizona for my Solo Exhibition at John B. Strong Fine Art. I have been preparing for this show for months, it is quite a relief to be done with the paintings and to have everything at the gallery.
"Mesa Shadows" oil on panel 20x16
"Dark Mesa" ink on paper 7x8
I did 20 paintings for this show, all of the work is Southwestern subject matter. The funny thing is that half of the show was painted in the North East. But I enjoy being able to take trips into the Southwest, and do tons of studies outdoors and take a lot of photos, and then retreating to the North East to do my studio work. When I get back to the North East it feels like a different world, but it allows me to paint freely without too much outside influence from the Southwest.
"Mother and Child" pencil/paper 8x7.5
"Blue Bandana" oil on canvas 10x8
"Along the Mesa" gouache on paper 5x7
The artwork was done in a variety of mediums. I always enjoy going to shows that have a few drawings, some oils, and some water media. So I tried my best to do a variety of things so everyone who sees the show will enjoy it.
I tried something new at this show too. I designed a poster and printed up about 50 of them, that we will be selling at the show. They are all hand silk-screened, I look forward to seeing the public reaction to the posters. I had a good time designing it.

The show opens February 26th 7-9pm. I hope to see anyone who can make it!
