My new work on paper will be on display at Panza- 115 Sedgwick St, Millvale, PA from February 17th-26th, 2023. It’s just for two weekends including evening hours on Friday and daytime hours on Saturday and Sunday. Come see the fun exhibition of maybe 80 people’s work! I’ll be showing approximately 20 paintings on paper, hanging from clips. Sizes range from 9″ x 12″ to 18″ x 24″. Prices will range from $175- $350. This is not a gallery show where people buy things at the gallery so you will need to let me know if you want one. I’ll be at opening and on closing weekend I’ll be there one one of the weekend days for all the hours.
Opening reception Friday, Feb 17th, 2023, from 6-9pm. This will be crowded FYI as there are many exhibiting artists.

I love this annual creativity project which happens nationally called Fun A Day, as it’s different than a usual gallery show in that work is not framed, people attempt to work for one dedicated month on something, ANYTHING they wish to explore. I decided to MOSTLY work abstract and MOSTLY play with the colors I saw in the January sky, yet not make faithful pictures OF the sky. In this post I included a couple pieces that are actual pictures I painted of something recognizable. You might see 31 pieces by one person, or many less if they are simply working through January on a few pieces. At the opening you might hear a poet or musician who wrote new work in January to perform. First I was going to call it weather report, then winter sky, then I landed on the weather channel.
Some people will remember the year I did all goat paintings as a theme. I pulled an old one out and added sky colors.

This last one is one of the first I painted in January 2023. It is sold but I want to include it in the show and then I will ship it. This woman is in her 90’s and she’s taking watercolor lessons on her porch from a dear artist friend of mine, Vicki Powers in Charlotte, VT. I got Vicki started on watercolor in the 70’s after her art major and at the beginning of our long friendship. I loved her photograph of her student and saved it in a file I call ‘future paintings’.
